A White Privilege Question: Have You Ever Been Stopped by the Police Because of Your Skin Color?
Please include your skin color, if you're willing.
- •I haven't been pulled over by the police in 20+ years. The last time I was, I accidentally ran a red light and the cop just told me to be more careful. Not even a written warning.I'm a white male, currently 53, but that incident was when I was about 29. Also, I'm a very safe, careful driver, but I'm not sure that matters anymore.
- •Never in my life have I worried, even for a second, that my skin color would come into play as a reason to be stopped by the police.This, obviously, is white privilege.
- •Please share a story, if you have one.
- •Please be respectful.I find almost everyone on The List App to be respectful. Thank you for that!
