While walking down the street in Beverly Hills, a Black senior Versace executive was stopped and searched by police:
This is the rule, not an exception.
A black Versace executive says he was racially profiled close to the Beverly Hills branch of the Italian luxury fashion brand.
Salehe Bembury, the vice-president of sneakers and men’s footwear at Versace, was stopped and searched for jaywalking in Rodeo Drive, near Camden Drive and Wilshire Boulevard.
“What’s unfortunate is I literally designed the shoes that are in the bag and I’m f%$#ing being searched for them,” Bembury appears telling police officers in a video of the incident.
First, “VP of sneakers?” That’s just kind of weird.
Second, if you think that there is no more racism in the United States, you are either an egregious racist, or you are brain dead.
