Racist Attack at Supermarket- Help stop the hate

I was witness to a racist attack today in West Hollywood. While stopping at Pavilions, I heard a commotion happening outside my car. When I stepped out, I witnessed a white woman attack an African American security guard. I heard her at least three times call her a N******.  The security guard had apparently stepped in to check in on the woman when she saw her breaking something on the ground, I did not see that part but what I did see made me so angry, I just wanted to take some action.

There is NO REASON in this world to use that language to demean a fellow human being. The color of our skin is just a feature, as is your height, hair color, etc it is nothing more than melanin. We need to stop this hate.

I have heard and seen these on the internet before but to experience this is person is SO MUCH WORSE. The fact that someone can be so demeaning, so hateful, towards someone else, especially someone they don't even know, and can immediately go to calling that someone the most dehumanizing words, is definitely something that wakes you up. So I decided to film it, and to take action.
If you could have seen the face of pain, sadness and just complete overwhelm on the security guard as this woman berated her with the N word. To see that anywhere, to see that in a place as inclusive as West Hollywood is, was just too much. 

It saddened me to hear the security guard say how she can't take this anymore. She told her fellow security guard to call her boss and let him know she's quitting. To drive someone to that level, is just beyond me. She attacked her, she bit her, she cut her face, and she dehumanized her. I just can't let this woman go unemployed because of that monster.So if you can help me, I set this up so we can all show her how this is not going to be tolerated and how we can show her that this is NOT WHO WE ARE, this is NOT AMERICA; we are one people, we are together in this and there's more of us than of these haters.

I commit to go to Pavilions and get this woman's information to give it to GoFundMe. EVERY SINGLE PENNY FROM THIS WILL GO TO HER.

LET'S TURN AN ACT OF HATE INTO AN ACT OF LOVE.

I am posting the edited version of the video here but sharing the unedited with the news. I did not want to encourage any further evil by posting the guy's license plate here. The police intervened, they were fast and professional, the Sheriff's office has the assailant so let's let them do their work.
