Eerie how the dialogue may differ from those WWII-era “Are you down with the National Socialist German Workers’ Party?” scenarios in the movies, but you can still see the intent is the same.

Why would you let someone who is making you nervous know where you live?

Decent chance she could have a weapon in her pocket.

Perhaps it’s just my imagination, but Delivery Donna looks as if she might not be 100% pure Nordic Aryan herself.

Since race is a very real social construct with life or death consequences for the racialized, how someone looks to others is literally the basis of the kind of bigotry Delivery Donna used against her victim.

Fun fact: minorities can be biased/racist against other minorities.

Wait 'till she learns that St. Nicholas is from Turkey.

re the concern trolling and finding excuses for her behavior: is either ignorant and naive privilege or straight up promotion that it’s ok to be a racist asshole in “certain cases”. In both situations, the message is: “Maybe her behavior is OK”. IT IS NOT OK.

Was the driver wearing shorts? Some people are triggered by shorts.

It seems like the poor guy getting hassled here is a UPS seasonal employee, which is why he’s making a run up the street with a handtruck of parcels, instead of hopping in and out of an actual UPS truck. He’s probably not wearing a full UPS uniform, but would definitely have UPS credentials. But that would also be why another UPS driver shows up and vouches for him–that would be the driver this guy is helping.

This woman has probably appointed herself head of the neighborhood watch. She may also be the only member. Even odds she has a gun in her sweatpants.

It’s pretty clear she wanted to see a dead Black guy one way or another

Hopefully amazon will gift her a ring doorbell to help her crusade against suspicious elements.

Everyone calm down. She’s not a racist, just a die hard FedEx loyalist.
