Another black man racially profiled by a white man

Not sure where most of you are on the political spectrum but this seems pretty wrong. Made it on CNN so the video may go viral. The link wasn't provided but you can look up the man's name on YouTube.

Seems like the guy is a jerk and an ass - but this is what, like the 3rd or 4th video of this happening so far?

Out of something like 320,000,000 people in this country, of which about 200,000,000 are persons of color?

So, yeah, um sure seems like a problem that is out of control to me. Bullshit. This incident was wrong and the guy calling the cops is probably a total douchebag, but to say this is 'common place' and as the article states, is something that 'black people deal with everyday' is complete trash.

I've spoken to several of my friends who are black - and I live in redneck heaven where the black population is something like 3%, yet they still tell me they have never encountered anything like what we see on the news.

So something tells me, that while this incident is obviously wrong, it is no where near as prevalent as the news media tries to make people believe.

I just read the story and I’m not sure race had anything to do with it. The father said the man “tailgated” in thru a locked door as he was exiting. We have a rule at work that no one tailgates in and we confront them for proper ID, and send them to the front desk for proper credentials. Even if we know them and they lost or forgot their ID/badge. Many buildings have security like that (or more restrictive).

The guy wouldn’t identify or call the resident he was there to see, and that person eventually showed up - from outside. So to me it looks like the father did what the building residents are probably supposed to do, it was non-violent, and the whole thing might have been a set up to get a video.

Guy is a blatant asshole but he called to the cops not the Gestapo. I love how the libs make it look like the cops are some sort of death squad and calling them on a POC is equivalent of a train ride to Auschwitz.

JHC who gives a shit? Stupid people do stupid things everyday.

Of course the guy in the video will now be destroyed online, probably lose his career, and will be compared to Hitler. Gotta sacrifice as many people as possible to the PC cult so all the plebs get in line and hate themselves. What a world.

anytime im leaving a secured apartment building like that i ask who they are there for if they walk in with me.

doesnt matter if they are young/old, white/black, male/female. There are way more stories about people being assaulted or robbed from this type of thing, than there are of people getting butthurt over this type of thing.

All he had to do was close the door and say your friend will let you in, sorry. Does anyone honestly think he would have called the cops on a white guy or lady?
