Forest Whitaker was frisked at a store in NYC on Friday after an employee accused him of stealing. He was frisked in plain view of everyone. Of course, the pat down produced nothing. The employee then reportedly beg the Academy Award winning actor not to tell store management in fear that the episode would cost him his job. Forest, in turn, asked that the store change their behavior and treat the public in a fair and just manner in the future. See, not even an Academy Award can stop a Black man from being criminalized. Liberated from NewsOne.

SmhNo one is safe. (I am talking about black people here.)
But I thought if Black People only were respectable and didn’t sag their pants, and spoke proper king’s english, racism wouldn’t affect them. You mean fame and money doesn’t stop racism from happening, I for sure thought that if you’re a successful Black person, there’s no way, racism can hinder you I mean you have money, you have fame. What do you mean racism is an systematic institution, that no amount of wealth or respectability politics will curve that? What do you mean that racism isn’t just a mentality, and have real life repercussions? It’s almost as if this incident is saying, that Blackness is hated so much it’s seen as inherently bad and criminal even when the Black person in question is a Academy Award Winner, and is liked by white people.
Proof here. What a shame.
