Several readers of edhat sent us the below video that was posted on Instagram. The video was posted this week by local DJ Ian Soleimani in front of the Boathouse Restaurant at Hendry's Beach.

The video shows a local woman arguing with an employee of the Boathouse at its entrance near the walkway to the public beach, seemingly over an unpaid bill. Soleimani starts filming as the interaction gets more heated. The woman then turns to him and begins a slew of racist rants.

At the time of publication, the video received nearly 20,000 views and 450 comments. With permission from the video's owner, the video is provided in full below:

Context, please? The race thing was utterly out of line. Good for him for staying cool and recording it and maybe keeping things from getting worse.

I am still curious what was the woman's disagreement with the restaurant? Does anyone know what came before?

@Robert, the context is she didn't pay her bill and the restaurant said pay or we'll keep your ID. She didn't like them keeping her ID and starting saying crazy unhinged stuff, raising her voice in public. A guy walking up saw the interaction and started filming, presumably as evidence if the restauranteur is harmed or there's some frivolous lawsuit.

Context is very helpful. Huge thanks GENERALTREE for that link to the full story. I am so grateful that we have honest, decent, caring and generous people like Ian Soleimani in our community. I wish there was some way to convey our support to him to let him know how much we appreciate him.
