Black dad explaining situation to cop

Golf Cart Gail has since gone viral amid a growing and documented history of white women calling the police on Black people for everything from barbecues to campaigning against Trump.

"This man was simply trying to watch his son's soccer game and cheer him from the sides", Williams wrote.

Even though the father explained he wasn't being aggressive and was willing to leave the grounds in order to deescalate the situation, Gail persisted and eventually made the decision to call the cops because she "no longer felt safe with [the father's] threatening behavior", Williams noted in her post.

In the latest example of cops being called on black residents for doing nothing wrong, a white Florida woman phoned law enforcement officials patrolling the seaside community of Ponte Vedre this week to report a man who was cheering on his son at a soccer game. Video of his interaction with police was taken by another parent at the game, Ginger Williams, and obtained by WLTV.

Williams posted about the incident to Facebook. And on Friday, a black man filmed as a white woman tried to block him from getting into his apartment building because she didn't believe he lived there.

This incident comes on the heels of a similar story in St. Louis last week where a woman was sacked from her property management job after a viral video showed her trying to bar a black man from entering his apartment building. "This happens more times that I would like", he said.

The man, who has not been identified, explained to police that the field marshal thought he was yelling at the referee.

God help us, Facebook is bringing back the Real World
That's right: you can now play God with the Real World contestants. We now know where at least one of these reboots is ending up.

In video footage recorded by Williams, the field marshal claims the Black father responded in a "nasty" way toward her, according to local outlet First Coast News.

"I was only talking to my son, and that's it".

"I started filming because she would not leave the father alone", Morales-Walter told NBC News. Listen I play by the rules. Why weren't the police called?

Mulligan, the spokesman for the sheriff's department, said the department gets about 40 disturbance calls a day, and is obligated to respond.

Here's what you need to know. Videotape yourself as you're walking out", Morales-Walther told ABC.

Easom told the station that parents are not supposed to approach their kids during the games and that the incident was being mischaracterized on social media, as it was more about how parents behave negatively while watching their children participate in youth sports.
