Videos from cell phones and police body cams are helping heighten awareness of the seemingly racially-tinged motivations of people who call police on people of color. Recent incidents include African Americans barbecuing in a public park, waiting for friends at Starbucks, golfing too slow, and even entering their own apartments, and Native Americans attending a college campus tour. In February, police escorted Robert Robedeaux (Pawnee, Ponca, Otoe) out of a Hibbett Sports store in Oklahoma after the manager reported “a suspicious person” trying on clothes. The conversation highlights the questions people might ask themselves before calling police.
