The temperature was 33° Thanksgiving afternoon in Pontiac, Michigan. A Black man was seen walking down the sidewalk in a residential neighborhood with [gasp] his hands in his pockets. It was snowing lightly.
So, a cop stopped him to question him. I’m certain every idjit in the country who thinks we live in a post-racial society doesn’t think this is profiling. It is exactly profiling.
Fortunately for Brian McKean, the cop who stopped him – because that was what he was told to do no doubt – appeared to understand how stupid and racist the whole thing looked.
Brian McKeen was pissed off and told the cop so. The cop handled it OK. Brian hauled out his cellphone and recorded the cop asking him stupid questions. The cop got out his own iPhone and recorded Brian – while he asked his stupid questions.
