An unidentified white man went on a racist rant against a black teacher in a racist road rage Johns Creek, Georgia, on April 6.
The teacher, Terrence Stover, posted a video of the incident on Facebook and recalled what happened:
…I observed a man aggressively driving in traffic. He slid his vehicle behind mine and started riding my bumper. Then he passed me on the driver’s side and flipped me off. He threw an object out his window in my direction and screamed obscenities at me.
I shook my head in disbelief and continued on my way. Then, I looked in my rear view again, only to see the same guy swerving out of a turning lane and start riding my bumper once again…
Since I knew it was not safe for me to outrun this maniac, I turned into a high traffic shopping center to ensure my safety. I was also hopeful that if he followed me, others would help me calm him down.
My pursuer ended up pulling up next to me in the parking lot. He stepped out of his car, yelled racial slurs and spit in my direction, hitting my car. The assailant used racial slurs, and violent body movements, while holding onto what I believed was a gun in the pocket of his shorts.
When I asked him why he was racially and verbally attacking me, he said he was trying to “get a rise” out of me. By taunting me with the “N-word,” he hoped I would fight back so he could legally murder me.
I did not take the bait. I did what I tell the players on my team: “In every situation, you can only control yourself! Look at each situation carefully and make sure it is not an ambush!”
Stover and witnesses called police, and an officer came to the scene and reviewed the cell phone video, notes WSB-TV.
The white man, Eric DeKeyser, was charged with disorderly conduct and taken to the Alpharetta Jail.
