Laquetta Good Colonial Heights Virginia black woman captured on video being told by white food bank worker neighbor she is the wrong color- Chesterfield Food Bank responds immediately firing white woman.
A white food bank worker has been fired by her employer after being caught on video telling her black neighbor she is ‘not the right color’.
The woman – who is seen wearing a Hilary name badge and since identified as Hilary Langlois – is heard shouting at Laquetta Good during the incident in Colonial Heights, Virginia:
‘Watch me handle this,’ she yells. ‘You are not the right color, honey.’
The confrontation isn’t part of the woman’s work at Chesterfield Food Bank; it apparently has been a simmering issue because their children don’t get along, according to The Progress Index.
In the footage taken Thursday (see below), the white woman later replied ‘Yes you are’ when the Good, 30, asked if her neighbor considered her an N-word.

‘I feel like a prisoner in my own home’
The clip was shared to Facebook on Friday. It starts with the Chesterfield food bank worker, Hilary Langlois standing on the sidewalk while mom-of-two Laquetta stands on her porch.
A second video appears to confirm the police were called over the incident. It is unclear if any investigation is ongoing. The food bank apparently became aware one of its workers having been involved in ‘an incident’.
Told Laquetta told via the dailymail: ‘I feel like a prisoner in my own home.
‘She has called me many names before but to hear her being racist, that really shocked me.
