Another driving while black situation occurred on 8/13/19, when a man in Royal Oak, Michigan was looking for parking before getting something to eat. Allegedly he “looked at [a white woman] suspiciously” and that was cause enough for multiple police officers to descended on the scene and detain the man for almost an hour.
Bystander Kimiko Adolph recorded part of the interaction with police on Facebook live, and posted the video below.
Fam, when we ALL do what she did, and put pressure on law enforcement to let them know we as a community will not tolerate their shenanigans, this is how we win. The next time you are out and you see a black man or woman possibly being harassed by law enforcement, do them and us a favor and record what is happening. Let them know we are watching them and if possible, get others to join in so there are multiple witnesses.
The Panthers used to do this back in the day, and it’s time to being that spirit back!
