I am curious: I am curious if any white folks get “hassled” by the police?
If so, do you video tape it? How do you handle it?
Are blacks “targeted?”
Do we hear about stops and real or perceived injustices more from blacks because we go to the camera or news and whites don’t or does it only happen to blacks?
If you are white, have you been pulled over because you were in the wrong neighborhood?
Have you been asked to leave a certain area because you were making people uncomfortable?
Have you been pulled over or stopped and acted childish and gotten a ticket?
Has someone called the popo on you trying to get in or out of a house?
Get stopped or a ticket for loitering?
And so on… there are all sorts of “I have been wronged” or hassled by the police situations
Or have you ever been unjustly interrogated?
Or do you know of other whites who have had issues with the police? Doesn’t have to be you. Even links or news stories.
This is not about bashing the police, and I, Ayesha Kreutz, am pro-police! I believe police officers and first responders have a difficult and dangerous job. I am simply curious as to why there are so many news stories and social media posts and hype shown about blacks. So I posted the question on my facebook page and so far have found hundreds of whites have also been “improperly” targeted, or hassled by the police. (I use quotes because that is people perception and not necessarily the facts or the truth.
What is the difference in the reporting of such things?
