A video which has gone viral on social media platforms, captures a white man and his family harassing a black man taking a walk in his neighbourhood and asked him to leave because ”he doesn’t belong there.”
The white man identified as Jonathan Pentland, is a United States Army sergeant first class, and he’s currently trending on Twitter and being accused of racism.
In the video, Jonathan and his family are seen harassing and threatening a young black man, named Deandre, who explained he was just taking a walk in the neighbourhood in Columbia, South Carolina.
Jonathan then asked the black man to walk out of the neighbourhood and hinted at getting physical if he does not leave.
Pentland can be heard in the video saying; “What is it that you’re doing here?”
He added: “You can walk away or I’ll carry you out of here.”
