Eating While Black... WTF???



Joy Reid ✔ @JoyAnnReid

11. It's kind of sad when that is the best thing that can be said.

There is no need for this harassment at all. It shouldn't raise an eyebrow.

4. 10 years since Fruitvale Station shooting of Oscar Grant.

"Oscar Grant III was a 22-year-old African-American man who was fatally shot in the early morning hours of New Year's Day 2009"

A lot more at the wiki page

5. I have a coffee every day on BART

Not once have I been harassed. I guess I'm just too white. I see dozens and dozens of white people with coffee.

Passing BART police every day. I have never seen anyone harassed.

This pisses me off to no end. This harassment of black people must stop now.

At least he didn't get shot.

10. It would be great comedy if it weren't so deplorable

You really have to appreciate the absurdity of what happened (pretty much copied from the article, this isn't a joke I made up):

"You are eating, it's against the law"
"So what?"
"You are going to jail"
"I'm not going to jail for eating a sandwich"
"No, for resisting arrest"

Resisting arrest for what? For not being ok with getting detained for eating which wasn't a reason for getting arrested?

12. Resisting is the new loitering.

Itís what cops arrest you for when they know they have no other arrestable offense.
Then itís just your word against theirs, or it used to be before everything everywhere was on YouTube.

15. Police instigated this

Cop could've just told the guy 'hey, you're not supposed to be eating on the platform'. Instead the cop made it a big deal. Reminds me of Eric Gardner. Another video where you can plainly see the cops exacerbate the situation. My eyes don't deceive me.

And is that cop allowed to grab the guy's backpack and not let go?

I hope we haven't heard the end of this.

Seriously "eating while black" now is a crime.
