Dexter Manawat was told he came from "some piece of s***, Manila-a**, f***** ghetto"
A racist Las Vegas woman was recorded going on a rant about her Filipino neighbours, calling them “orange savages”.
Filmed by Las Vegas resident Dexter Manawat, the Facebook video shows the neighbour cleaning up leaves and hurling anti-Filipino slurs at him.
“Where did I come from?” Manawat asks. The neighbour responds, “from some piece of s***, Manila-a**, f****** ghetto living under a tarp piece of s**** land.”
The neighbour calls Manawat an “orange m***********” and says Filipinos are “like orange savages.”
“You’re too busy in there populating the world with your trashy people,” the neighbour informs Manawat,”you guys can go blow up more fireworks like you’ve never seen fire before because you’re so f****** stupid.”
Manawat shared the video on Facebook and told KTNV that many of his Filipino friends were offended.
“I’ve never been called orange,” he says. “That was a first.”
KTNV tracked down the woman in the video who claimed the rant came from frustration and weakness, “I stooped to the lowest possible denominator to hurt someone because I was angry,” she says.
The woman fears retaliation after the video went viral and insists her anger was directed towards her neighbour not the Filipino community. Manawat himself admits he isn’t the perfect neighbour but says the woman crossed a line. “I’ll miss certain things around my yard, but that doesn’t mean you have to go off on my culture and nationality,” he says.
