I Was Trying To Record The Ordeal On My Camera, Says Tanishaa
"I was trying to record the incident on my camera. The video I posted online ends abruptly because the guy stopped me and told me to switch my recorder off."

"It's unfortunate when you experience something like this in a land that stands for rights and liberty. I am saddened that an African-American behaved like this, considering they have experienced discrimination themselves," Tanishaa summed it up.
