This was no ordinary case of road rage, if there is such a thing. An engineering student at Texas A&M University, Ali Alghamdi, was going about his day when he noticed the car in front of him driving erratically. First the car ran a stop sign and then it continued to slam on the blakes, causing Alghamdi to do the same.
After a few minutes of this, things turned ugly. The driver of the black Chevrolet, Alghamdi was following, suddenly swerved his car, putting it in park, and blocking Alghamdi. It was then, the driver of the Chevy got out of his car and began verbally attacking Alghamdi. What started as accusations of tailgating quickly escalated to a string racial slurs, including calling Alghamdi a terrorist and shouting:
You better learn how to drive in America. This isn’t Pakistan, bitch. This is not Pakistan, Afghanistan or Kuwait, motherfucker.
Alghamdi recorded the confrontation for his own protection, saying:
I was just shocked; honestly, I was scared.
