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.
