There is a growing list of things people of color can not do in peace without the interference of “well meaning white people” getting involved.
Donald Sherman, was pushing his son Caleb in a stroller through a local park in Washington D.C., and instead of having a peaceful and very normal walk through the park he was approached by a police officer,reported The Root.
Sherman shared what happened on his Facebook page.
“Today in Living While Black” Sherman referenced his post.
“[It was] 30 minutes into our stroll I got flagged by a security officer in one of those cars marked ‘Special Police’ on the side,” he wrote. “I was a bit confused as to whether she was looking for me to stop, but she honked twice and pulled over so I got the picture.”
The officer then told Sherman she received a call about a “suspicious man” with a baby.
