    Police called on former Obama staffer for 'moving while black'

    Moving in now = burglary.

    Police called on former Obama staffer for 'moving while black'
    A former White House staffer who served under President Obama was swarmed by six police officers while moving into his New York apartment after a neighbor reported a “burglary in progress.”

    Darren Martin, who works for the city’s Department of Social Services, tweeted the entire ordeal on Friday night, along with a video of his interaction with the officers. “Can’t go nowhere without the cops following me. You know how it is,” Martin says in the footage. At one point, a 911 dispatcher is heard over the radio saying that “Somebody was trying to break in the door” with a “possible weapon.”

    Martin described the moment of “pre-arrest when your fate is not in your hands” and how the “lingering pit in my stomach came from how my neighbors viewed me. How they officially welcomed me into the building. Call the police on this Black man who DEFINITELY doesn’t live here. The man who worked for President Obama and now serves his fellow New Yorkers.”

    Sometimes I think that about 40% of our neighbors are just mean-spirited assholes.

    Maybe, after he got over his fear of being murdered by the police.

    Happened to me once.

    I locked my keys inside my car, in the driveway of my house, including my house key.

    I had an extra set of keys in the house so I walked around the house looking for an unlocked window.

    Yep .... yo guessed it .... I got a visit from the local PD and to add insult to injury I got frisked by a black female LEO.

    But, you see in the real world .... that's called "protocol".

    And, moreover ... I'm white so "whatever ..... while white" doesn't exist.

    But, in the Alt Left Universe "whatever ...... while black" is just a dog whistle or click bait for our racist friends on the left to cry foul about "anything" happening to a black person that involves white folks and/or LEO's.

    Yeah but that’s not what happened here. He was moving boxes IN to his apartment froma U-Haul outside. And they still called the cops on him.

    There is no justification here.

    Yes there is.

    It's called neighborhood watch programs.

    Maybe you've heard of them?

    But, here's the real issue.

    You guys are all twisted out of shape because this happened to a black person, when we all know, this would have never made the propaganda fake news had they been white.

    You guys expose your own prejudice.
