White Woman Threatens Black Neighbors With Stun Gun, Tells Them To 'Act Like White People'

The family can be heard arguing with the woman as she claims that their dog attacked her poodle.

A California bigot showed up to the home of her Black neighbors on Monday, threatened them with a stun gun and told them to "act like white people."

KMVT reports Adana Dean of Discovery Bay, California found herself upset because her Black neighbors' dog was outside without a leash. 

“I don’t want to see that dog outside,” the woman told the Jones family. “You guys are acting like Black people, and you should act like white people. You’re acting like people that aren’t normal.”

The family can be heard arguing with the woman as she claims that their dog attacked her poodle. 

"The dog is not even outside," a member of the Jones family said in the video.

The woman proceeded with her allegations, but the Joneses were ready to provide evidence.

"I have it on camera," a family member said. 

Unable to provide proof of her accusation, the woman resorted to racism.

"You're acting like Black people," she said.

The shocked neighbor recording the video almost dropped the camera when she heard the racist claim.

"We're acting like what," she asked.

The Karen took another wild turn as she tried to explain why she understands Black people. 

"I was raised in Oklahoma City where there are tons of Black people," she said. “You’re a Black person in a white neighborhood, and you’re acting like one. Why don’t you act like a white person in a white neighborhood?”

The outraged family demanded for the woman to leave their property.

"Get the f**k off my property," they said. 

Before walking away, the woman still insisted that her dog had been attacked.

The Jones family, who has lived in the neighborhood for 12 years, said they never had a problem with Dean until now. Only a day earlier, the family had taken their dog for a walk in the neighborhood without any problems. 

Despite the shocking turn of events, the family managed to stay composed throughout the incident.

“She had a stun gun. Had my sister or any of them got physical, myself, with her, the story would’ve been this Black family is assaulting this white lady in the streets,” Gerritt Jones told KMVT.

As the confrontation escalated in the video, Gerritt was trying to keep his family calm.

"Go in the house," the man told his loved ones. "Let's show the world who has class." 

Although it was an unusual occurrence in the neighborhood, the Jones family was reminded about the prevalence of racism in America.

“Unfortunately, that’s the reality of being Black in America,” Gerritt said. “Normal to her is people who will lay down and submit to, unfortunately, her white privilege.”

He said he wants others to learn from the incident. 

“I want my son to grow up and be proud of who he is, and I hope that people all over the country learn from this and see that this can’t be tolerated,” Gerritt said.

The Joneses have in fact came up with a new slogan: “We’re going to act Black in our white neighborhood.”

The Contra Costa County Office of the Sheriff documented the incident, but determined that no crime was committed. 

Dean is one of many Karens who has been shamed in public in recent months.

One of the most high-profile incidents involved Christian Cooper, the Black bird watcher who faced a racist white woman in New York City's Central Park earlier this year, as Blavity previously reported. Cooper was doing his routine bird-watching during Memorial Day weekend when he encountered Amy Cooper. The woman became agitated after being told to put her dog on a leash and called 911, falsely saying “an African-American man is threatening my life.”

In another incident last month, a white woman in San Diego yelled "F**k Black Lives Matter" to a Black Starbucks barista after being told to wear a mask.
