White Woman Gets Probation & Anti-Hate Classes For Spitting On Black Protestor

In white privilege news, a woman has been granted probation after spitting on a Black woman during a Black Lives Matter protest.

The disgusting assault was captured on camera back in January in Hartford, Connecticut. Activist and Power Up Manchester founder Keren Prescott attended a BLM demonstration with a friend, where the two were chanting “Black lives matter.” That is when 45-year-old Yuliya Gilshteyn responded by screaming, “All lives matter.” This exchange led to a heated argument, with Prescott warning Gilshteyn to stay six feet away from her because she was not wearing a mask. That is when the violent white woman spat in Prescott’s face.

Gilshteyn was arrested and initially charged with breach of peace. However, Hartford State’s Attorney Sharmese Walcott upgraded the charge to a hate crime after reviewing the footage. In addition, Gilshteyn was charged with third-degree attempt to commit assault, first-degree reckless endangerment, and risk of injury to a child.

The racist learned her fate on Wednesday, with Hartford Superior Court Judge Sheila Prats sentencing her only to a probation program for first-time offenders. Gilshteyn also received 100 hours of anti-hate courses that must be fulfilled within two years. Once she has finished the classes, all charges against her will be dropped, and her criminal record will be wiped clean.

During the hearing, Gilshteyn called her attack “completely out of character” and apologized to Prescott. However, an emotional Prescott says that the light verdict was a “slap on the wrist.”

“When she attacked me, and the police didn’t believe me, that was white privilege. When the police held me back, and she was led away, that was white privilege.”

  1. This is a shameful display of how these despicable and permissively assaulting behaviors marginalize and disrespect people! I do not believe Ms. Gilsteyn’s actions were the mistake she proclaimed them to be, nor was the verdict handed her during the adjudication of the charges levied against her for the assault she committed. It is however, a clear and constant reminder of the disregard for the right to safety during peaceable protesting for some and the omission of ‘real’ accountability for the duty to respectful responses from others. The ‘telling’ character contain and repugnant assail displayed by Ms. Gilsteyn was a purposely deployed aim of her vitriol and saliva at Ms.Prescott! I suspect her expression of regret was likely only voiced because she had to stand before a judge to receive some form of recompense and instead felt the compulsion to plea for the leniency she received.
