Judah Adunbi, 63, was a founding member of the city's Independent Advisory Group, which works to improve ties between the police and ethnic minority communities.
He was tasered after apparently being mistaken for a wanted suspect by two police officers.
Judah claims he went through a similar ordeal involving police in 2007 in another case of mistaken identity.
And believes the incident on Saturday morning around 9am was a racist attack.
He said: "The first time round it could have been an accident - but a second time, that's a racist attack. I'm happy to say that. I know it was the case."
The 63-year-old was returning home from a routine walk with his pet pooch Hazel when he claims the police pounced without provocation.
He said: "I was just finishing my walk and coming home. Police were driving up the road and caught a glimpse of me. When they saw me I had my hood up so it's impossible for them to think I am who they were after.
"One of the officers came right in my face. They insisted on trying to antagonise me. I started to see red and thought it was happening all over again. I felt frightened and terrified because of what happened previously."

I highly doubt it went down like that. Where is the other half.

When did she "decide" to Taser him in the face? Or are you just using hyperbole and disregarding the fact that the probes tend to land where they land and there's only so much control to be exerted over that? Poor probe placement doesn't equate to a decision to Taser somebody in a sensitive area.
Is it actual law that UK law enforcement are required to warn, or is it simply a best practice? Sort of a big difference between "should, if possible, do this" and "required by law to do it all the time, every time, no exceptions."
Hyperbole aside, this is surprising to see. The fact that this guy is a race relations advocate isn't really germane, as anybody can break the law at any time and being a race relations adviser doesn't preclude one from potentially breaking the law. Just surprising to see the apparent inability to de-escalate things on the part of the LEOs, since that's usually a point of pride for UK cops.
