We’ve done a lot to get rid of racism in this country, but sadly, it does still exist. Even famous black people still get treated differently at times, just because of their skin color. It recently happened to Famous NFL football player Terrell Owens, and he live-streamed it.
Fox News reports:
Former NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens got into a heated argument in his neighborhood Wednesday night, with police showing up at the scene.
Owens, who played for 15 years in the NFL, began filming the altercation with a woman after the police officers had arrived.
“I’m driving to my mailbox, she’s telling me that I’m speeding,” Owens said to the police officers. “Telling me to slow down.”
The woman accuses Owens of running a stop sign, nearly hitting her with the car, and then getting out of his car after she told him to slow down.
“You didn’t have to get out of your f—ing car,” the woman yelled at Owens. “You’re a Black man approaching a White woman.”
“KAREN IS REAL!!!!” Owens video caption says on Instagram. “Wow!! JUST A NORMAL NIGHT OF BEING A BLACK MAN IN AMERICA. I want to say I can’t believe it but y’all know what it is.”
The woman didn’t need to point out the color of Owens’ skin. “You’re a man approaching a woman” would have sufficed. Why do you think she pointed out Owens’ skin color? Since she’s his neighbor, do you think she knew who he was? Owens wants the woman held accountable for her statement. Will she be?
