Chicago PD highlighted "Driving while Black" with LaRoyce Hawkins being profiled. LaRoyce confronted the Black officer, got in his face and told him he should be ashamed of himself. The officer backed down but his white partner didn't and shot LaRoyce's passenger.
Even though I was profiled many times as a teenager, I will never be able to appreciate the anger and turmoil profiled Canadians experience. But I can and am a ally.
This article is six years ago and still some departments continue to profile citizens across Canada and America.
Our appreciation to Calvin Lawrence for the post and Michelle Lalonde, Montreal Gazette for the article and photo.
