The footwear designer Salehe Bembury was profiled by two police officers earlier today in Beverly Hills.

According to Bembury, who is currently the Vice President of Sneakers and Men’s Footwear at Versace, he was walking from the brand’s store with a few purchases and was stopped by two policemen who swiftly pulled up with their vehicle and stepped out to question Bembury. The officers stated they caught Bembury jaywalking and proceeded to check his I.D. after asking him to turn around for a search.

The next moments of the interaction were recorded on video, posted to Instagram, where Bembury explains how the officers were searching him for “shopping at the store he works for and just being Black.” While one officer was defending his intent, another had just finished checking Bembury’s ID. After Bembury asked “so you checked my ID. Do I have anything on my record?” the officer responded, “no sir, you’re good to go.” Following the interaction, the designer put up a Story explaining what happened in detail and how he was scared at the moment but confirmed that he’s now safe.

The cop was about to say something fucking stupid. "But listen ..."

He'd already blamed Bembury for "making it something it's not" or some tired bullshit like that.

So basically they searched him for jaywalking. Cool.

It's hard to decide what aspect of these bullshit instances of stop and frisk-esque harassments pisses me off the most, but the pigs' habit of blaming the black person they're harassing for "making this more/harder than it has to be" (or some similar bullshit like that) when they get angry that they're being fucking harassed is very close to the top. They always find a horseshit way to blame the person they're harassing for their harassment.

No, hardo pig, what made this situation "harder than it has to be" was you fucking patting me down for drugs and weapons because you saw me fucking JAYWALKING. And that's assuming the dude was even jaywalking.

UGGGHHHHH I fucking hate cops so fucking much.

no matter how perfect you are as a Black person, you CANNOT escape systemic racism

no matter how well raised
no matter how polite
no matter how rich
no matter how good looking
