April 6, 2012 – Last week, director/ film maker Tyler Perry was pulled over by Atlanta police for making an illegal U-Turn from the right lane. Of course Perry is claiming the white officers pulled him over because he is black. Not because he intentionally broke the law, but because he is black. Big surprise there, huh? Sounds like Tyler Perry has racial chip on his arrogant black shoulders.
I noticed in the story there was no mention to the fact that Perry’s windows are dark tinted and the police probably couldn’t tell what race the driver was until his window was rolled down. Just a minor detail. By the way, here in Georgia the law says windows to either side of driver or in back of vehicle, the light transmission restriction may not be less than 32%, plus or minus 3% or increase light reflectance more than 20%.
While the two white cops were questioning Perry, a black cop arrives on the scene and recognizes Perry. Minutes later they let him go, without a citation.
On Perry’s Facebook page he says the black cop “immediately took both officers to the back of my car and spoke to them in a hushed tone. After that, one of the officers stayed near his car while one came back, very apologetic. I said all of that to say this: do you see how quickly this could have turned for the worse?”
Another comment from Perry, “RACIAL PROFILING SHOULD BE A HATE CRIME INVESTIGATED BY THE FBI!!!”
Bottom line here – Tyler Perry broke the law and any other person would have been ticketed and sent on their way. But hell no, not Tyler Perry. Tyler Perry gets a free pass all because he doesn’t reflect as much light as white folks.
Way to go Tyler, you pompous jerk! You have now lost all credibility as respectable citizen of Atlanta. You now join the growing clan of black assholes who use the color of their skin as an excuse. If those white cops were treating him so damn bad then why not file a formal complaint? Oh hell no. Instead he goes public and brings himself down to the level of Al Sharpton.
For the record, those Atlanta police officers hold a position far more respectable and admirable than Tyler Perry will ever hold, and those same cops wouldn’t hesitate to step in front of a bullet to protect his arrogant black ass if his life was in danger.
