I’ve been profiled. So what?


It has come to my attention that some people think that because I’m advocating for personal responsibility, self-control and respecting law-enforcement officers that I’ve never experienced racism.

Folks are accusing me of never being pulled over for driving while black, of never being asked why I’m in a certain neighborhood, of never having a police officer demean me in front of my children – NOT TRUE!

I just have a totally different response: I don’t attack police officers. There are rude donkeys in every profession. Just because I’ve encountered a few more than I deserve in my lifetime doesn’t mean I won’t DIAL 911 in an emergency. Respect the badge.

Get over yourselves. You do realize that mean people whose lives suck are gonna hate right? What should you do? Let it ruin your whole life or pay that ticket and get on about about your business? I choose the latter.

File a complaint if you have a grievance. Hands Up Don’t Shoot is a myth that was disproven by a mountain of evidence extensively reviewed by a grand jury. The real conversation should start at reducing the outsized level of crime in our community.

It’s time to move on.

    I admire your attitude. I am not black, but in my life I have been profiled as someone warranting additional scrutiny at times – as a teenager (years ago) or someone who does not fit the image of the store I am in or for reasons I never fathomed. I have been stopped and questioned or followed. I’m not saying that is equal to a DWB stop. It’s not. I am saying that some donkeys bray the same tone to people across the spectrum.

    Most police are our friends, and I can’t say I have ever been pulled over when I didn’t need to be. I do have a problem with the nationalization of our police, but this is just more of the complete control that our federal government is trying to impose.

    Any cop that would pull over a classy looking, beautiful young woman like you, for driving your Mercedes in an affluent, would have to be racist, but you acted just the opposite of what he expected, showing your class.
