All they had to do was read the mind of that woman and wave at her right? Clearly they were out of place in that neighborhood. Out of place.


Earlier this week, three black Airbnb guests checked out of their rental only to be met by seven police cars.

Attorneys for the guests said a woman who called Rialto, California, authorities said she made the call because the departing guests didn't wave to her or smile at her.
"They have a right not to smile," said attorney Jasmine Rand at a Thursday morning news conference in New York. "We don't want to live in an America where black people are forced to smile at white people to preserve their lives."

edition.cnn.com...

Blacks do disproportionately commit crimes compared to whites so should different rules apply to them? Should entire, predominantly white, neighborhoods be informed in advance of black guests coming in? Should blacks take now about the sensitivities of their fellow white americans and go out of their way to prove they're not stealing? I mean it's justified right? Of course I'm being sarcastic. They had no obligation and this woman should be charged for filing a false report. She had no reason to contact police but she preceeded anyway and these people were harassed.


Fyffe-Marshall said she'd seen the neighbor watching them, but didn't see her wave or smile. She and Pendergrast joked the neighbor was going to call the police on them, she said.

"Let us acknowledge this history, this heritage and this legacy that we all have inherited as black and white people of this world," Prendergrast said.

edition.cnn.com...

It's going viral, these incidences of clear racial bias. This following two black men who were escorted out of a Starbucks two or so weeks back for no apparent reason other than they 'looked out of place'. LA Fitness apologized after two black patrons were racially profiled and escorted out, with no legitimate reason. They 'promised' they'd improve on staff training. One of the patrons was an 8 year long member of the club. These incidences are not restricted to blacks.... A pair of Native American teens on a college tour were briefly detained by police after the parent of another prospective student called police because she said they made her "nervous." School officials apologized. I don't doubt for one second these incidences have become common place. Thanks to social media they're just being documented more and I sincerely hope more minorities start documenting more of these cases and start calling out the people behind these actions.

Sounds like a classic set up for publicity and lawsuits by Airbnb.

Airbnb is having problems elsewhere too.

Isn't the problem here that the police overreacted?

"Hello, police? Yeah I saw these people coming out of a rental unit and they seemed a little suspicious. Could you check it out?

"Great Scott! We'll send seven squad cars right away!"

Seems to me the situation cold have been cleared up with a phone call. At most, a couple of officers to pay a friendly visit.

They have a right to call the police on whoever they want. Maybe the police should have responded with a visit to the caller and when they seen they were called just for someone not smiling at a person they wouldn't take it to the next level by having many squad cars and an arrest for nothing.

Police's fault. Maybe they are the ones following an agenda.

She woulda called the police even if they smiled and waved back...they were probably already on their way and she was just trying to stall them

Imagine what would have happened if they raised the middle finger, guns would have drawn...

You need to smile at people in California or you might go to jail. Yeah, I can see this happening in California, I bet she would have called the cops even if they were white and did not smile or wave.

This is an example of humans at their worst.

That being said, any story like this could be cherry picked to prove a point.

I can promise you I could find you many more stories like this.... I could also show you the vise versa.

I'm more annoyed with the obvious racial division being created by the media by posting da stories constantly.

Blacks aren't taking all our money, the gov is.

Then taking a sh!t in your cereal using the media, so you don't figure the scam out.

It's starting to get retarded.

This is just plain messed up, the lady who called the cops was a moron.
I’m not sure why you’re drawing comparisons with what happened at Starbucks though, before their “inclusiveness” training/indoctrination it was company policy to keep the restrooms for paying customers, as is the case with most businesses.
They weren’t customers and they were asked to leave, call me crazy but I take it as a given that if your not paying a business for their services you shouldn’t be there.

Obama told her... "If you see something, say something". So what's the problem?


"Because they had luggage in their hand and they weren't really looking at me. You know, they just kind of avoided me, or they didn't wave ... And I know the couple that own the house, and I didn't recognize them."

Very dangerous situation.

7 squad cars on scene screams bored cops looking for action.

Why is this even "news" in the first place?

Oh that's right, gotta keep the racial division going.

My bad.

Yes why? Instead of taking this problem on we should just sweep it under the rug right? And you wonder why these divisions persist?

I dont know...maybe its news because there's a segment of Americans (plenty on this very message board in fact) that will swear up and down that blacks arent discriminated in America?

In the last week or 2, what's this...like the 4th instance of a white person calling the cops on someone for....just being black....and existing?

#ing cops were called on a student at yale because she was **gasp** sleeping....while black.

Why do you fault the little old lady? You're the one who sounds like you want special rules for black people.

And what's that in your signature?

One confused and overly concerned old lady's reaction is cause for a national outcry??

It's stupid yes, (and believe me the lawyers are the ones exacerbating the issue for a nice payday, no doubt..) but by no means is it a reference of measure as it pertains to discrimination nationwide, although it will be perceived that way, again..no doubt because if it's one thing this racism business has falsely taught the public, that one person's actions defines an entire racial group, regardless.

Horse hockey.
