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:

Wow. Sad to say I'm not surprised with all this rhetoric being emboldened by certain political figures and one party in particular. Just bummed to see it in our hometown, but my friends of color have been saying this for a long time. Also she's not making any sense. Broccoli? Oprah? Dr. Phil?

That you, BABYCAKES? 99.99% of people "going through something" aren't disgusting racists. I agree no breaks needed or deserved, this is disturbing behavior no matter what is going on in your life or what demons you are fighting. Doesn't give you a free pass to be a demon to others. Ever.

Agree with you @2:26. Keep in mind though, that with a population of approximately 340 million, 0.0099 percent is about 35,000 peeps. That's a lot of potential disgusting racists to disturb even the most jaded amongst us. She appears to be having a public meltdown. She is talking irrationally. She appears to be on edge. She then discovers that someone is recording the event....fine. But, when someone is "mentally ill" as someone on this board who is a clinical mental health professional determined (is that legal to diagnose a person who is not one's patient?).

Side Note: this story is making national news. Just great. Now, people won't want to come to Santa Barbara because it's a hotbed of racists. Of course that is not true....see how that works?

BABYCAKES, she may be mentally ill and she may need help, but we don't know that. What we do know is that she is a racist - which is not excusable just because she may br mentally ill and/or struggling with substance abuse. It is not and should not be a free pass to be an asshole in a way that deeply and problematically affects others.

The person on here "diagnosing" her is likely not a mental health professional at all, or they are an irresponsible one. Probably against licensing rules to dx with this little evidence/study.

Racism isn’t a mental illness and not all people who have mental illness are racist. It’s prevalent in our society and in SB. This needs to be called out and everyone needs to say this is wrong. Don’t make excuses.

She might have a mental illness but society frequently excuses bad behavior from white people as mental illness while other races do not get the benefit of the doubt. Also will repeat again, mental illness doesn’t make you racist. (Side note: I also work in the mental health field and advocate calling bad behavior out and not placating)

sure looks like the racist is exploiting her "customer is always right" ideals in front of a bunch of people IN PUBLIC. Shes the one trying to get "entertainment" from her outburst. no one else was talking, only her voice was heard

So I'm sittin' here in my apartment in IV, watchin' this & thinkin' to myself how some people can REALLY make fools of themselves!
Not gonna call her a crazy woman, just gonna lay it out for what she is, a spoiled, entitled, self-centered brat w/ a hyper-inflated sense of self-importance.
I don't care what race, color, ethnicity, religion, gender, or sexual orientation/preference, political affiliation you are or espouse, you act like this person, you're a fool.
It don't surprise me 1 bit she didn't pay the bill, she seems to have it etched in her peabrain that she's entitled to gettin' away w/ anything she wants to in life.
Cheers to the restaurant staff that dealt w/ her, she was a true professional & she deserves our support, as does the restaurant.
Major props to DJ Ian Soleimani for making the effort to capture this tirade on film. I admire how he took her ethnic/racial insults in stride. Best way to make a point is let the guilty do what they do best & that's be guilty!

I was so sidetracked by her foolish behavior that I forgot to ask a basic question & that is was she tryin' to dine & dash? The "discussion" seems to be over an unpaid bill, that can be a number of things, but was she tryin' to skip out on payin' for her food?

thats what I gathered, sad we couldnt actually hear the complaint. but its common practice to hold someones ID if they dont pay the bill. shes upset cause her CC got declined. so shes mad at the employee and establishment...... this is all from my gathering in between the racist rants.

Apparently she was there for a long time, with her broccoli. She exudes a classic deflection technique....which is to yell, deflect & insult. Usually, this technique works, the person is dismissed, bill not paid. Businesses tend to dislike confrontations & political careers ruined by the loudest, crudest , name-calling person. It's also a technique used by this on the sociopathic spectrum. They fully believe rules don't apply to them. She is such an entitled bully accustomed to pulling ruses in her disgusting style. Glad she met with classy responses...by the employee be & videographer.

Kudos to the employee for remaining calm under difficult circumstances.
Watching the video was akin to driving past an accident scene - hard not to keep watching.
Wonder what the offender will think when she sees herself!?

Edhat refers to the woman as local but that's in dispute on other social media sites (claim is the manager's husband said she's from Florida). Regardless, pretty shocking the woman starts to utter the N-word at 2:48 then catches herself.

Lozano is being actively supported by the New California State kooks up in the No. County. This 'ranter' is that same type. Regardless of where they are from, Lozano's campaign needs to get up here and take down all her illegally posted signs on our roadsides. They were put up in the dead of night. Can't wait until this is over and she and her acolytes, like this ranter, can crawl back under their rocks..... or go back to Florida!!!
