Tyler Perry Claims Racial Profiling After He Was Pulled Over For Illegal Turn

Tyler Perry Claims Racial Profiling After He Was Pulled Over For Illegal Turn
UPI FILE
Tyler Perry was allowed to leave once a “black guy” arrived on the scene after he was pulled over by police.

An investigation has been launched in Atlanta after entertainer Tyler Perry claimed he was racially profiled.

On April 1, Perry recounted the ordeal on his Facebook page.

Perry felt like he was being followed, so he made a left turn from a right lane. He was then pulled over by white police officers.

He remembered his mother’s advice: My mother would always say to me, “if you get stopped by the police, especially if they are white policemen, you say ‘yes sir’ and ‘no sir’, and if they want to take you in, you go with them. Don’t resist, you hear me? Don’t make any quick moves, don’t run, you just go.””My mother would always say to me, ‘if you get stopped by the police, especially if they are white polieceman, you say ‘yes sir’ and ‘no sir,’ and if they want to take you in, you go with them. Don’t resist, you hear me? Don’t make any quick moves, don’t run, you just go.’”

Perry recounted the incident: “It was so hostile. I was so confused. It was happening so fast that I could easily see how this situation could get out of hand very quickly. I didn’t feel safe at all.”

Another officer pulled up. “This officer was a black guy,” wrote Perry. The officer recognized him, and Perry was allowed to leave.

“RACIAL PROFILING SHOULD BE A HATE CRIME INVESTIGATED BY THE FBI!!! That way local government can’t make the decision on whether or not these people get punished,” he concluded.

    Obviously, this idiot doesn’t know the meaning of the term “racial profiling.”

    He was stopped AFTER he broke the law.

    It’s more than a bit tacky for Perry to call a police officer a ‘black guy.’ Dude, that, in and of itself is a form of RACISM.
    You need to consider anger management and a bit of introspection.
    If his skin is even thinner than it seems, he might consider “making friends” with the local police department. Frankly, I’m tired of people who think they’re “special” and demand to be treated better than the rest of us. Some folks, it seems, aren’t yet aware that there are multiple forms of profiling, and Perry chose to use one of them.
    And, you broke the law, “guy.”

    Issues like this make me positively sick. I am fed up with the racial profiling crap. Who gives a damn? If a person breaks the law—black, white, yellow, red, whatever—then they should reap the consequences. This is just another excuse for some people to “do what they want” whenever they want.
    I have to go get my groceries for the week—so I can see all the people of different races use their “Link” cards while I write a check to pay for mine. Gosh, I must be wealthy–especially as a taxpayer paying for all those groceries. Same with medical care.

      jopa–I feel like I am losing it. Sorry to spill my guts out. I am going through Bob’s clothes and things this morning. It is the hardest thing I have ever done. Fifty-two years and the life we had together is gone in an instant. It is all I can do to keep from ranting and raving, blaming anything and everyone. I should practice what I preach. I wish you a Happy Easter, and thank you for your kindness. Godspeed.

    Claire;We hear you and we all know where you are coming from and you have the right to rant and rave as we all do at times.It may not seem like it now but in the near future things will become brighter again and there will be laughter and joy once more.You have your family and a lot going for you so just hang in there.Godspeed.
