This case goes to show that the police presence in the black community isn’t there to protect and serve, it’s there to harass and arrest. It’s a common trend for police to harass Black Men daily because we are viewed as a threat since childhood. You don’t really hear many cases of racial profiling happening to White men. Actually when they compare Racial profiling cases between Black Men and White Men, the numbers will show you that Black Men are HIGHLY likely to be racially targeted by the police more than anyone else.
"You know, when I was married to the Cuban, I never had to worry about a thing. Desi was so damn smart about everything - scripts, cameras, lighting, costuming, you name it. I would simply waltz in on Monday mornings and the cast and I would read a perfect script, all ready for rehearsal. All I had to do was be Lucy. Desi took care of the rest. We made a great team. Plus, it didn’t hurt that we we were crazy about each other.”
