Denver Woman Filmed Saying 'Get Out' to Black Man Walking Down Street

A video has emerged showing a female dog walker following a Black man down a street in Denver, Colorado, telling him "get out of here."

In the footage, another dog walker approaches the pair as they argue with each other.

The Black male can be heard asking the woman "why you asking me about the picture?"

The man then dismisses the woman and says "good morning, have a nice day" before turning around and continuing to walk away from her. The woman carries on walking towards him and says "get out of here."

The woman recording the video then adds: "Let him walk."

The woman then spots that she is being recorded and says "oh, you're having a problem with this?"

The woman then tries to call over the person filming the incident, to which she replies "I don't want to 'come here.'"

The woman being filmed then walks away with her dog.

Speaking to KVDR, the woman being recorded defended her actions, claiming the confrontation started after she saw the man taking pictures of her house.

"He was down kind of into the bushes, looking up at our house," the woman, who wished to only be identified as Margie, said.

"I didn't say I lived here, because I didn't want him to know that. I said, 'What are you doing? Why are you taking pictures of that house?' All he had to do is saying something like, 'Oh I think it's really pretty,' or something.

"The people behind thought that I was doing it because he was Black. It wasn't because he was Black, it was because he was taking pictures of our house," she added.

The woman who first posted the clip onto Reddit accused Margie of racially profiling the man.

"I see dozens of white teenagers taking pictures or Snapchats in that area all the time and it's never been a problem until it's a black man. It's never a problem when bloggers take photos of lovely yard decorations or any other nonsense along that line," she told KVDR.

"He wasn't doing anything suspicious at all, just walking around. He didn't owe her or anyone else an explanation for walking in a public space, much less one that sees heavy foot traffic all day. This was racial profiling, simple and plain. Even in big liberal cities, racism is alive and active."

Margie defended her actions after being shown the footage, adding: "I would do it again."
