The woman caught on video screaming "nigger" at a black driver in a Western New York parking lot told her side of the story on the radio this morning. You can go ahead and fill in the "I'm not a racist" square on your Racism Bingo card.
Janelle Ambrosia claims that the before the video started rolling, the man who filmed her shouting "you're a nasty fucking nigger" almost hit her son with his car and called her "I don't know what he called me ... a crackheaded cracker." She failed to mention that part of the story to her husband in the conversation we see on the video, instead saying he scared her kids by starting his car.
Before WBLK host Big Rob could even ask the question, she jumped in with "I'm not a racist. I have a black cousin."
Explaining how the term "nigger" entered the equation, she said, "Nigger means an ignorant person, it has nothing to do with race. He pissed me off, I'm bipolar."
She said she doesn't have anything against black people, but when asked what she would say to the driver now, she sarcastically replied:
"Am I supposed to apologize? Oh yeah, I'll apologize for him almost hitting my kid and me losing my temper."
On top of everything else that is terrible about this bottomlessly terrible mixture of racism, mental illness, and YouTube, things just got even more complicated for the children caught in the middle of it. Janelle says her ex has seen the video of her rant and wants to take custody of the kids.
