Nischelle Turner's horrifying encounter with racism

Nischelle Turner had a really terrible incident while walking around Hollywood after having an interview with Oprah in the summer of 2019. Nischelle stated in an article for Women's Health Magazine, “I looked up to see two white men giving me the finger. We were both headed for a stoplight, and we stopped at the same time. They were in the turning lane, and I was in the lane beside them. I looked over and gave them a shoulder shrug like, “Really?” Then, they rolled down the window and started screaming, “F-you! F-you!” At that point, I turned back around, but they kept screaming at me. The guy in the passenger seat opened his car door, leaned out, and spat on my car.” She didn't speak out about her incident until 2020, thinking that the justice system would handle it properly.
