Black Oakland Community Responds to Woman Who Called Police on Cookout
The black community of Oakland made a point against terribly racist white people calling the police on them in the best way imaginable: a massive “f you” of a cookout. The cookout was a response to a now viral story of a white woman who called the police on a black family having a cookout for reasons so nitpicky and meaningless, even the government official in charge of this kind of thing went “please don’t call the police for this kind of thing. Ugh.”
It’s a beautiful sight, and beautifully defiant as an “f you” to all the kinds of forces that would want to keep black people out of these kinds of spaces, from gentrification to random racist white people. As for the lady who called the cops? Well, I don’t know what happened to her, but she lives online still as a particularly blunt meme.
Good work all.
