A white woman in Denver was filmed following and questioning a Black man who simply was walking in a neighborhood near Cranmer Park.
The video also shows her asking him questions about a picture. The man can be heard asking the woman why she is interrogating him, and she eventually explodes.
“You f**khead, get out of here,” the woman is heard saying.
At one point, the woman recording the scene tells the woman to leave the man alone, saying, “He’s not bothering you.”
Denver7 spoke to the woman in the video, who did not want to go on camera or have her name used. She said she saw the man take several pictures of her home and she worried they could be used for a crime. We asked her if she would have reacted differently if a white person took photos of her home and she said race didn’t play a role in her questioning. She said she just wanted to know why the man took pictures of her home.
During the confrontation, the man began to walk away, but the woman continued to follow him. He finally told her they are not going to talk and said, “Have a nice day.”
The woman in the video claims she had every right to question why the man took pictures of her home. However, the woman filming the video argues that it’s a beautiful neighborhood and photos are common, adding: “He is in a public space, he took a picture; people do that all the time. It’s a movement right now where we need to prove that Black people are harassed for no good reason. It’s a time where we need to have evidence to back up what we are saying.”
