I usually do not blog when I am mad. But I am doing so now because I do not want to be calm when writing this. As a black man, this story makes me sick. I am tired of those of us trying to make a difference being called out for race-baiting when we are exposing the clear and present danger racial bias is to people of color but specifically black men.

I just came across this story in my feed from RawStory.

A black former Obama administration staffer had the police called on him while moving into his new apartment in New York City. Darren Martin moved back to his hometown after spending several years working in the White House and on Capitol Hill, but his homecoming was complicated after a neighbor reported him Friday as a possible burglar, reported WPIX-TV.

"Somebody called the cops on me in my own building," Martin said in a video streamed live on his Instagram account. Officers came to the Upper West Side building to investigate a possible burglary in progress, and the 911 caller warned Martin was carrying a "large tool" that appeared to be a weapon.

What is so pathetic about this incident is that it appears this is a gentrified neighborhood. Many up North, in their narrative, attempt to make racism a Southern thing. It isn't. It is an American thing, a worldwide thing.

It is time to penalize people who put the lives of black men and others in danger based on their racist, biased fears. Their fears are not the problem of black men or people of color. It is a disease they would do well to seek help for before they continue fertilizing the people-of-color killing fields.

Reality shows us continuously that police all over the country are trigger happy with encounters with people of color, specifically black men. To my white friends, please note the following. Whenever you call the police, and you specify the person you fear is doing something wrong is black, or a person of color, compounded by the statement that they are carrying a weapon, please remember you could become an involuntary accessory to murder along with a cop that is unlikely to pay the price for said error.

Is it any wonder that black men are terrified of the police? I am a 60 something white woman and am sickened by most white people and their jumping to conclusions about black and brown people!

In the land of the free, we're free to call the cops who are free to shoot anyone you say has "a weapon".

Egberto, I recommend that people should Never call the cops! The few times I have, rather than help, I got lectures and no respect.

And I am Pink:)

I agree with you but don't forget about the sisters. You only reference men.

I'm white and am sickened by how black and brown people always jump to conclusions about white people. I grew up in the 90s and listened to rap music that called for death to white people. You hear someone say they want to kill you enough, and you're probably going to want to kill them first. Same thing with police. A lot of black people act hyper aggressively with law enforcement. Maybe instead of running around playing the knockout game and threatening cops, you can say "yes officer, thank you officer sir, it will not happen again sir", then call them an arsehole when out of shooting range.
