Watch: Racist Postal Customer on Camera Assaulting Mail Carrier


A postal carrier in Hingham, Massachusetts lost his job following an incident in which he refused to take a certified letter back from a woman. The letter was addressed to her husband. She then hits him with a barrage of racist slurs including "f*cking ni**er thief" and assaults him.

According to the mail carrier who posted this (and says he has more videos) it has been a year since the postmaster fired this mail carrier. There has even been a court case in which she got off without any trial.

She may soon, however, be delivered the YouTube brand of justice.

  1. Wow. Just wow. Astonishing, hateful ignorance. And she thinks blacks have lower IQs. The mail carrier shows astonishing self control.

    It has been long established that standardized tests are written for the middle-class and upper-class white student, whose culture supports assumptions being made by questions that are asked. And those tests were intended only to predict academic success in higher education. Period.

  2. I don't understand why the mailman was fired. That's infuriating!

    Has anyone alerted 4chan?

  3. Wow. Someone needs to slap the evil "Mrs. McCluskey" and then some. Someone needs to right this wrong bigtime.

  4. The best part is her entitled & patronizing tone... you poor, poor, stupid, n..., let me enlighten you.


    In that neck of the woods, she'll likely be defended as misunderstood- more likely drunk or off her meds.

  5. That is the nastiest racist hateful tirade I have ever heard! Did that woman get prosecuted for assaulting the mail carrier?

  6. Lol I was thinking that too Crispy. 4chan would personal army this in a heartbeat.

  7. How did the MAILMAN lose his job for this??? She HIT him! She reached through the window and hit him in the face and threatened to KILL him, never mind all the name-calling!

  8. There's got to be more to this. Why wait a year to post these videos? Why was he fired without a fight? Something isn't right with this. Yes, she's a nasty bigot, but I think there's more to this story.

  9. @CKNJ according to the commentary accompanying the video, she was never prosecuted for this (which I assume now means that there's double-jeopardy attached).

  10. Gawker and 4chan have verified her identity as Erika Winchester, not Mrs. McCluskey.
    She's going to regret this for a LONG time.
    Ignorant racist cow.

  11. Can someone explain to me why this woman is not locked up?

  12. Hahaha..i know she's not Mrs. McCluskey. She reminded me of that character from Desperate Housewives.

  13. This is, embarrassingly, a few blocks away from my elementary school...

  14. Hingham is a upper middle class seaside inner suburb of Boston. The bitch is probably going through a bitter divorce or something. In my experience, these middle and upper middle class middle aged suburban bitches are the most arrogant assholes anyone will have to deal with in life. Incredible levels of entitlement.

    The mailman was doing his job. She signed for the certified letter than it's hers. She can't give it back. That's the reason legal documents are sent certified.

  16. She's obviously racist, but what else is going on here? Why is the mail carrier not delivering her cards? Why didn't he just drive away? Why doesn't she just drop the letter in the truck and go inside?

    Weird racist video without context. What "justice" do you suggest, without understanding what happened?

  17. @Gruntled: The context seems pretty clear to me. She signed for a certified letter addressed to her husband. Then decided she didn't want it and attempted to give it back to the letter carrier. He refused because it had already been signed for.

    Posted by: crispy | Nov 12, 2010 10:07:50 AM

  18. @Gruntled, the card she was referring to was the certified-letter card that she signed in exchange for the mail. Taking it back would mean the mail carrier was be tampering with a legal document just because some random lady told him to. That's not his risk to take.

  19. what cards?

  20. It seems odd that he was filming this encounter. There has to be more to this story than just this obviously unhinged woman. Why was he fired? The answer to that might clear up some things.

    But on the surface, something is very, very strange.

  21. I am sure there is more to the story, like why wait a full year to release the tapes? Perhaps it took that long for him to get them from the post office, especially if he was fired. Many government vehicles have cameras in them, he could have activated it when he saw her coming to the truck.

    I'm sure this story is going to spread and more will come out. Either way she is an ignorant racist bitch.

  22. Her pussy stinks and she don't love Jesus.

    Posted by: Tessie Tura | Nov 12, 2010 10:16:26 AM

  23. I agree there's got to be stuff being left out. The P.O. is unionized and it's VERY difficult to get fired. I spoke with a close friend who works for the USPS and he confirms there must be more to this story.

    Not excusing this filthy bitch. And Hingham is a wealthy, liberal leaning town. I wouldn't doubt this woman is a Democrat and liberal. Her mask fell off. I know PLENTY of similar people.

  24. I really don't know what to say about her. I can only hope her outlook on race relations improves.

    Posted by: ophu | Nov 12, 2010 10:21:34 AM

  25. The cards she's referring to are probably the two cards the USPS service has you sign and print your name when you accept a certified letter.
