A woman refused to allow a black man into his own apartment building. Hilary Thorton, who has gained the nickname, ‘Hallway Hilary’ was captured on video preventing a black man from entering an apartment building they both live in. Hilary claims that her actions were not racist and that she was simply following instructions from her condo association in regards to allowing people you don’t recognize into the building. “When I noticed an individual that I did not know here, my only thought was to follow directions I had been given by condo association board members repeatedly; and that’s to never allow access to anyone that you don’t know,” she said.

She followed the man to his apartment until she realized he had door keys. She ultimately lost her job for racial profiling and has said she’s received death threats for being a racist. :That’s false and heartbreaking–those are words that cut deep.”
