A woman and her sister attempted to create a racial riot at a kindergarten performance.
Minifee, CA: The Ridgemoor School hosted their 16th annual Kindergarten Spring Play to a large crowd of over 300. Kindergartners danced across the stage, and a few parents crouched at the front of the stage to snap pictures during the play. Then, towards the end of the performance, when the students started the portion of the program to honor veterans, one woman ruined the entire evening.
According to witnesses, a woman suddenly stood up in front of the stage, obstructing the view of everyone there. A lady asked her to please scoot over or grab a chair – but she only replied with a dirty look, and was still standing minutes later as the Paloma Valley ROTC began a Color Guard to honor U.S. veterans, with the kindergartners ready to sing.
Parents grew impatient, pleading with the woman to move, while another woman stood on a chair at center stage and shouted profanities at the crowd, saying the woman obstructing the view was physically disabled, the witness said. As insults were hurled across the crowded gym, the youngsters on-stage were ushered into a back room.

A parent who was in attendance, said military personnel in the audience assisted in restraining the woman. “After they took her outside she then attempted to get backstage back into the school, resulting in her being taken out of the school by these men and placed outside in the parking lot.”
“I didn’t see her hit the principal, but I saw her sister swing at another parent,” another witness said. “She was African-American. She was told to move, but not because she was black. When she was told to move, she right away played the racist card and said, ‘Just because I’m black.’ Several witnesses said that the woman tried to make a racial issue of the request that she move her chair, and that she and at least one other person with her had made racial comments at the very start of the performance.
“There were racist comments made by the African-American woman in the center aisle regarding the Pledge of Allegiance and how it was a white person’s world, and she used the N word multiple times, which just is sad,” a witness said.
Police were called and the woman was given a citation and may be banned from future school events.
