OPINION: How Apartment Patty and the Black man both messed up
A video recently surfaced of a Black man attempting to enter his apartment building while a white woman instantly interrogates the man asking, “do you live here?”
I ask you, “Would you consider this racial profiling or simply ensuring safety?”
Is the white woman racist? Or should the Black man have shown her his keys to prove that he lived there?
Both the woman and the man were wrong in this situation. Listen to the segment to find out why I think so.
Who do you think was in the wrong? I counted six times where they both messed up.
