Default USA:Amanda Black Poet Star , security guard who thought she was a 'threat'




https://news.sky.com/story/superstar...hreat-12237462



[Amanda Gorman: Poet says she was tailed by
suspicious security guard who thought
she was a 'threat'
"This is the reality of black girls:
One day you're called an icon, the next day, a threat,"
says 22-year-old Amanda Gorman.]




Sure that Security Guard
was wrong.


But maybe Amanda
do not tweet it,
you are making it worse young lady.

I was once followed in the supermarket by a non Caucasian security guard.

It's seems quite obvious he was only following me because I'm Caucasian and he was a racist. Do you agree?

White people get so offended by the reality of life for other ethnicities. We truly are so self involved.

Lol I'm pretty sure something like that has happened to everyone at least once.

Singling out one race as being offended is fairly racist.

I see he should be looking for a guy in black and white striped top carrying a bag marked SWAG?

I agree to be fair, she is very innocent looking. I didn't listen to her intro at the inauguration and assumed she won a USA-wide school competition or something

For all we know a sweet innocent black woman may have been robbing houses in that area

and unless we hear from the guard its a bit one-sided and pointless

no, not interested in that guard's scripted excuse

security guards only have one job, just do your job the correct way and maybe they need to study more if they can't correctly identify threats from innocents anymore

A security guard is readings scripts?

this isnt Columbo

How can you tell who is about to commit a crime and who isnt?

and how do you know she is telling the truth??
