1 00:00:00 The story about how I lost my job is very, very interesting.
2 00:00:06 Okay, I used to…
3 00:00:08 I worked for a restaurant in Massachusett.
4 00:00:15 I was a security guard for this place.
5 00:00:21 While I was working there,
6 00:00:23 I had many racial profiling incidents.
7 00:00:29 The first time took place while I was doing my job as a security guard there.
8 00:00:36 A family called me and brought me to their table.
9 00:00:42 They asked me what I was I doing there.
10 00:00:45 Clearly, my shirt said I was a security guard there.
11 00:00:48 I said, “Oh, ma’am, I’m a security guard here.”
12 00:00:50 She goes, “I want to make sure that I know what you’re doing.”
13 00:00:54 “I want to make sure my kids are safe.”
14 00:00:57 I said, “Ma’am, that’s my job, to make sure your kids are safe.”
15 00:01:01 I was about to leave but she called me back.
16 00:01:04 She goes, “Hey, I just want you to know that you have few of your kinds here…”
17 00:01:09 “…and there are more of my kinds here.”
18 00:01:11 “You don’t belong here.”
19 00:01:13 That was the first time in my entire life I’ve ever heard such thing of that caliber.
20 00:01:19 I didn’t even know how to feel when that was said to me.
21 00:01:24 I told my supervisor at the time.
22 00:01:28 His name was XXXXXX.
23 00:01:29 I told him what happened.
24 00:01:32 Of course, he apologized to me for what she did.
25 00:01:37 That was the first time.
26 00:01:38 The second time took place on another night.
27 00:01:45 It was on the 4th of July.
28 00:01:51 No, it was a week after the 4th of July.
29 00:01:56 While I was on my shift,
30 00:01:59 …one of six guys came to me and grabbed my private part.
31 00:02:05 With the way he grabbed my private part, he got me confused.
32 00:02:10 I was not sure of what was going on.
33 00:02:12 All his friends laughed at me.
34 00:02:14 I told myself, “I have to stand up for myself.”
35 00:02:17 I almost went to the dark side.
36 00:02:21 A fight almost broke out.
37 00:02:25 That was the second time I was being racially profiled there.
38 00:02:28 My third time being racially profiled there, my supervisor was with another guy.
39 00:02:34 While I was doing my job, he came up to me.
40 00:02:39 He asked me why I was talking to white people ?
41 00:02:43 He asked, why don’t I go find my people and talk to them?
42 00:02:44 I replied, “What are you saying?”
43 00:02:47 He said, “You know what I’m saying.”
44 00:02:49 I warned him, “Please, do not ever talk to me in that fashion.”
45 00:02:54 After that, he went to the building administration.
46 00:02:59 He knows the owner of the building.
47 00:03:01 He told the building owner that he doesn’t like me.
48 00:03:08 He told him he doesn’t like me and wants me to get fired or whatnot.
49 00:03:13 On the next day, the building owner called my supervisor.
50 00:03:16 He asked my supervisor to let me go.
51 00:03:19 They let me go without telling me what I did wrong.
52 00:03:23 They let me go without telling me anything.
53 00:03:26 I wasn’t warned before I got let go.
54 00:03:28 They just let me go.
55 00:03:29 I demanded to have a meeting with the manager to know why was I let go.
56 00:03:36 I was told that the building owner told the manager to let me go.
57 00:03:42 I told him about all the incidences that I had,
58 00:03:46 …even those they knew about.
59 00:03:47 They said they never knew about it.
60 00:03:49 I asked him to tell me why I was let go.
61 00:03:52 What did I do wrong to let go of my job?
62 00:03:54 Until today, nobody could tell me why I was let go.
63 00:03:59 But they fired me.
64 00:04:01 That was the story of that whole incident.
65 00:04:04 I don’t know if I jumped around
66 00:04:13 So…
67 00:04:17 …fast forward to last week.
68 00:04:23 Now, I’m thinking about moving.
69 00:04:26 I’m thinking about going to Texas.
70 00:04:29 I want to go to Texas in October.
71 00:04:32 I just want to move.
72 00:04:33 I’m trying to start afresh.
73 00:04:35 I’m trying to start a new life.
74 00:04:37 I’ve been in Rhode Island now all together, I’d say, seven years.
75 00:04:44 I went to school for four years.
76 00:04:47 I’ve been out of school three years.
77 00:04:49 I’ve been here for my son.
78 00:04:51 My son was born here.
79 00:04:53 His mom is here.
80 00:04:54 His mom and I are not together.
81 00:04:56 I’m finding it hard to leave without my son.
82 00:05:02 I’m finding it hard to just separate my life without my son.
83 00:05:05 Three years later, he’s three now.
84 00:05:08 I’ve finally gone to that space in my life where I know he’s good.
85 00:05:14 I know, everything’s going be fine.
86 00:05:16 I’m just ready to move on.
87 00:05:19 I’m ready to move.
88 00:05:19 I’m ready to move to a new state.
89 00:05:22 Just start a new life.
90 00:05:23 I’m thinking about going to Texas in October.
91 00:05:32 I’m kind of nervous.
92 00:05:34 I’m kind of nervous to leave my son.
93 00:05:40 I would not leave my son but I’d be away from my son.
94 00:05:45 I don’t know.
95 00:05:46 That’s why I’m just…
96 00:05:50 That’s why I’m just coming back to just hear some words from you again.
97 00:05:54 I’m coming back to just talk to you.
98 00:05:57 I’m also a personal trainer.
99 00:06:02 I told myself what I was going do this week.
100 00:06:05 I’m trying to become more goal-oriented.
101 00:06:11 I’m trying to set goals and really meet my goals.
102 00:06:14 I’m trying to become more productive in my days.
103 00:06:19 I got business cards.
104 00:06:22 I’m just trying to find a system to get clients…
105 00:06:25 …and just keep going.
106 00:06:26 I just want to know how you keep your engine running every time.
107 00:06:32 I just want to know…
108 00:06:36 I’m just here to learn.
109 00:06:37 I’m just here to learn because I’m in that…
110 00:06:41 I’m at that crossroads in my life where I need to make a big decision.
111 00:06:44 I just want to make a wise decision.
112 00:06:48 Nick: “Now I understand your full disclosure, thank you.”
113 00:06:53 Really?
114 00:06:53 Yes
115 00:06:54 Oh
116 00:06:56 Not just me but all the viewer of this video have…
117 00:07:01 …no problems seeing where you came from and why you’re here.
118 00:07:12 Now we can start talking in a fresh conversation.
119 00:07:16 Right
120 00:07:17 Very good, thank you
