What is this world coming to for Black people? It seems like if you are Black, you are not allowed to fart anymore, at least not in public. A Black woman recently learned that lesson.
Shanetta Yvette Wilson, 37, a Black woman from Florida, got the rude awakening this week. She was in public and apparently had one of those farts that she just couldn’t hold, so she let it rip. A man standing close to her heard the fart, thought it was too loud and began to verbally abuse Miss Wilson to the point where she thought he might get physical with her. Miss Wilson then took a small knife from her purse so she could use it as a deterrent against the man who was much bigger than her.
According to a Broward Sheriff’s Office complaint affidavit, Miss Wilson was in the checkout line at the Dollar General store on 120 S. Federal Hwy in Dania Beach on Sunday evening. John Walker, the customer standing next to her, got into a verbal dispute “in reference to the defendant farting loudly,” according to the affidavit.
Wilson allegedly pulled a small “lock back knife” from her purse, “opened the knife and told the victim she was going to ‘gut’ him,” the police report said.
While doing so, she pulled back her right hand with the knife as if she was going to attack the victim with it, the report read.
Walker was “in fear that he was going to be stabbed by the defendant,” the affidavit read.
After police were called, Wilson was found by deputies in the area of 45 NW 5th Ave. and identified by Walker.
Wilson was arrested and taken to the Paul Rein Detention Facility in Pompano Beach. Her bail was set at $2,500.
