white woman calls security on black man pushing his son in stroller, thought he was “suspicious”
May 17, 2018
White people are really on a roll when it comes to these bitch-ass, racist-ass phone calls to the police and unfortunately, they don’t look like they’re going to slow down anytime soon. Donald Sherman, a lawyer based in D.C, and his son Caleb were just the latest black Americans do be enjoying public space before a white person mysteriously felt like they didn’t belong there. And while taking his sick son outside to get some fresh air, a security person was alerted that there was a “‘suspicious man’ walking on the bike path with a baby”. You know, a father just out with their child.
“Thirty minutes into our stroll I got flagged by a security officer in one of those cars marked ‘Special Police’ on the side,” Sherman wrote on Facebook. “I was a bit confused as to whether she was looking for me to stop but she honked twice and pulled over so I got the picture.
She told me that she received a complaint from someone who said there was a ‘suspicious man’ walking on the bike path with a baby. She said that when the complainant was asked to describe my race, she declined. Nevertheless, this person, a white lady on a bike who veered off as Caleb and I were walking in her direction, saw fit to report me to security.”
