DETROIT (WJBK) -

A woman was trying to book a limo for her mother's birthday through a booking agent she found on Craigslist, Detroit Limo Party Bus.

Candis Doss, 25, tells Fox 2 she called the company to get a quote while she was driving, and she says her phone dropped the call. Then, she says, she received a text message from the number she called that read:

"Why do black people always just hang up...Is it an inherited thing to be rude? or is it because you were slaves for so long?" - signed WWW.DetroitLimoPartyBus.com at the end of the text message.

Doss says racism is something she's never really experienced until she received the text message. "It never happened to me, or somebody that was just close to me, where I could feel what they feel. I feel what everybody feels now, I mean, it's just like - when is it gonna stop?" she shares with Fox 2's Amy Lange.
