Now it appears that people who aren't white can't even go for a drive in a car with their children without suffering abuse.
A video shared by Twitter user Santiago Mayer shows a woman, who is said to be a friend of his mother, being subjected to a string of racist insults and references to her appearance, while waiting at traffic lights.
The people involved in the video are yet to be identified but it is said to have happened in Houston, Texas.
In the clip, the man shouts at the woman from his vehicle and repeatedly uses the word 'b**ch':
You’re driving in two lanes, you stupid b**ch.
That’s not how we drive in America. Trump’s deporting your illegal cousins today, b**ch.
Stop driving in two lanes, anyway, Miss Thing. I’m not that stupid, b**ch.
Take all the pictures you want, b**ch. You’re ugly, you need a gay friend to help you with makeup and clothes.
He also deflects questions from the woman when the asks him if he has voted before he pulls into a garage.
The tweet has already been seen more than 138,000 times. People have reacted to the footage with disgust.
