Salehe Bembury the Vice President of Sneakers & Men's footwear for luxury brand Versace was detained and searched for jaywalking (being black) in Beverly Hills on October 1, 2020.
The Beverly Hills Police Department released their bodycam footage of the incident on October 4, 2020.
The officer probably thinks he's being polite and respectful. He is to a certain degree I guess, but before we go too far, imagine how this would have gone if it was this VP of the company.
Do you think the cops would have asked to see her ID or ask if she had any weapons, or have her put her hands behind her back like she was "praying"?
This bullshit has to stop.
Bembury's collab with DC's favorite shoe brand New Balance is one of the hottest sneaker drops this year.
