Man angry at Dallas USPS worker throws racist tantrum

A North Texas man headed to college caught the end of a racist man’s outburst on video.

Dallas police and the U.S. Postal Service are now looking into the incident that had others in line gasp in shock.

Dallas police officers were called to the post office. But by the time officers arrived, the belligerent customer was gone. Another customer captured part of the racially-charged rant and posted it online. Federal postal inspectors are now investigating.

Kian Salem was at the post office on Trinity Mills Road and the Dallas North Tollway on Monday when suddenly a man’s elevated voice caught his attention.

“I just had that gut feeling he was going to say something questionable,” Salem said. “So I pulled out my phone. You never know these days.”

According to the 18-year-old college student, an unidentified man standing at the counter was yelling at a postal worker about a form. The man turned his anger on a woman in line who tried to intervene.
