“Charged with driving while black.” This is what black Americans call it when they are victims of profiling while driving, with no other reasonable motive. Rather than being accused of driving while intoxicated, they get a veiled accusation of “driving while black.”
Should we now talk, however ironically, of being accused of riding the metro with a red square? After the so-called “preventative” searches and arrests reported during the Grand Prix, after a minister wrongfully associated the red square to violence and intimidation, the question deserves a fair hearing.
CLASSE co-spokesperson Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois exaggerates when he suggests that the police at arresting people “everywhere in the city” for wearing a red square. That is not true. Yet you have to paint on the denial pretty thick to pretend, like the SPVM do, that there was not political profiling done during the Grand Prix.
