Taraji P. Henson Shares Stories of Son Being Racially Profiled

*In the Feb./March 2015 issue of Uptown Magazine, “Empire” star Taraji P. Henson shared stories of racial profiling that her 20-year-old son has experienced.

“My child has been racially profiled. He was in Glendale, California and did exactly everything the cops told him to do, including letting them illegally search his car. It was bogus because they didn’t give him the ticket for what he was pulled over for,” Henson explained.

“Then he’s at University of Southern California, the school that I was going to transfer him to, when police stopped him for having his hands in his pockets. So guess where he’s going? Howard University. I’m not paying $50K so I can’t sleep at night wondering is this the night my son is getting racially profiled on campus.”

  1. You are absolutely right Sharon.

    I’m constantly making noise about the police policy and procedures having loopholes the size of the Grand Canyon. The policies and procedures are major components that must be addressed nationwide, ASAP.

    I’ve been calling on the black bar associations to set up task forces to review and fight to reform the bogus polices that allow rogue cops to get away with molesting and murdering our people.

    Black lawyers and the ACLU are well versed in the law. Therefore, they can devise legal remedies to reform the inhumane policies and practices employed by police departments.

    Until rogue cops start serving time in prison for their heinous acts, there is absolutely no incentive for them to change their behavior.

    Google the black bar association and the ACLU in your city, county, or state, and ask them to set up a committee to review the police policy and procedures in your area. Too many black people are being molested and murdered, and it’s time for the legal eagles to step up!

  2. BLACKS are at another false stand-still on America soil due to those that are taking advantage of the shield of protection by “BULLYING & PREYING” on African Americans … the base-line behavior remains activated …as well as authorizing others to demonstrate old-time terrrisiosm and then justify their doggedly actions in a judicial system that disbars African Americans from entering … while falsely accusing the murdered or beaten-down with rape, shop-lifting or non-compliance.
    African America is not sleepy … no rest until justice prevail across the land of injustice … my rich and righteous God is alive and watching.

  3. You cannot over mother, he has you behind him SC is the school for him. It is the end result that matter. There is power in the name of the school. He is a black male all he needs is a support team it starts with you you can get allies. Don’ the teach him to run. You are my and many screen favorites. He must be his own man.
