    a BLACK man moving into an apartment at 11 PM
    the clients are aware enough/thoughtful enough to call the police
    of course the black man IMMEDIATELY calls racism when--as usual--there is ZERO evidence of racism
    Police called on former Obama staffer for 'moving while black'

    That is really sad. Of course it's racism. Since when is a key a weapon? Lucky the guy wasn't shot for having it in his hand.

    please explain how it is racism
    I've been asking this question forever on USMB--no one seems to want to answer
    here is the definition
    rac·ism
    ˈrāˌsizəm/
    noun
    1. prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior.

    If it were a white millenial moving in at 11 p.m., someone would have said hi, and helped him move his boxes. You can't see that?

    So now people aren't allowed to choose who they want to help?

    I am white--I was JUST walking to work...the cops stalked me ...??!!!

    WHITE GIRL followed/assaulted/etc by state agents for -------------------------buying water !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    U.Va. student sues state for $40 million over arrest after buying water

    no--what you stated is nowhere near proof....no where near
    unless you have the caller to 911 say they called because he was black--and not moving stuff around at a strange hour---there is no proof in the world

    In this day and age, the responding officers should be given medals for not firing immediately.

    That's what you got out of that post?
    It isn't about helping. It's about seeing a black guy carrying a flat screen tv at 11 p.m. and ASSUMING he's robbing the place.

    Okay, harmonica. I can't "prove" it was racism anymore than you can prove it wasn't. So we're even. The only difference is, I think you think you win. You didn't.
