Two black women charged in a Houston beauty store attack claim they were racially profiled and video footage was edited to fit the store owner’s narrative.
Daquiesha Williams and Keaundra Young allegedly assaulted Jung Kim, the Korean beauty shop owner, on March 17 after they were accused of knocking over several wigs.
Williams and Young said they were racially profiled as soon as they entered the store, and the video evidence was edited to fit the narrative provided to and by the police.
Williams, who was charged with assault, can be seen on the video trying to deescalate the situation, and she doesn’t understand her charges because she says she “never touched anyone” and “never said anything to no one”.
They showed you certain clips of the video to make it seem like it was these angry black women just randomly attacking people and that’s not the case.
Jung Kim reportedly suffered a broken nose from the attack that will require surgery to repair.
According to the owner’s son, Williams and Young made Asian racial slurs during the attack. He said they called his mother “little Asian girl” and used some other racial words.
Started saying something like some racial words like, ‘Asian people shouldn’t be in the Black market.’
Jung Kim’s son and husband came to her defense during the attack, and the fight spilled over into the parking lot.
The son and the husband claim they were nearly run over by the car that Williams and Young were in.
Williams said the owner’s husband had a weapon and tried to block their car to prevent them from leaving the parking lot.
If somebody’s jumping in front of your car with a weapon and you’re trying to back up… I had somebody in the front of me and the back of me.
I have no choice but to go forward.
The store owners son denied the racial profiling accusations made by Young and Williams, and he also denied altering the video footage.

I do believe the two women were racially profiled, and I think the full video needs to be released to show what triggered Young to attack the store owner.
