‘Suspicious’ Black Dad Stopped For Walking While Black With Baby After White Lady Reports Him

Yet another black man was stopped by security for being black in a public space after a white woman apparently thought he stole a white baby.

Donald Sherman stayed home with his son who was not feeling well on May 10 and decided to be a good dad and take him for a walk. Unfortunately, you apparently can’t even do that in America anymore without some busybody cracker deciding you look suspicious.

As Sherman pushed his son, who is lighter-skinned, in a stroller through a Washington D.C. park, he was stopped by a security guard because the only other person he had seen — a white lady who was riding a bike — reported “a suspicious man walking the bike path with a baby.”

The officer, he says, was pleasant, but he got lucky. Had this been one of America’s plethora of overzealous racists with badges, he may have ended up injured or his son may have become an orphan.

“If this complaint had been made to a different security officer or an actual cop, things could have gone very differently,” he wrote. “This is exactly why we have to talk about white privilege and why black lives matter. Because at any point doing anything anywhere my safety and my child’s safety could [have] been in jeopardy because [of] some well intentioned complaint.”

But it’s pretty clear that the complaint was not well-intentioned, no matter how much Sherman wants to believe it to be.

It’s dangerous to be black in Trump’s America. Racists are feeling emboldened and anyone who isn’t white is paying the price.
