With all the news stories surrounding police brutality in America, it’s not unusual for men of color to feel afraid while interacting with law enforcement.
NFL star Roddy White took to Twitter on Wednesday to describe a traffic stop he said made him concerned for his life. A DeKalb County, Georgia, police officer reportedly pulled White over and put his hand over his holstered gun as he approached his car. The Atlanta Falcons wide receiver said that’s when he grew upset and worried.
According to CNN, White received two traffic tickets and said he wanted to report the officer for his actions, declaring, “It may save the next black man’s life.”
Georgia police say although they are aware of the incident, White has not yet filed a report. If he does, the matter will be investigated by the internal affairs unit.
