White Man Dubbed “Permit Model” After Trying To Block A Group Of Black Women From Flourishing During A Photo Shoot
Behold, another incident of microaggressions bubbles up to the surface.
A Twitter user posted a video of a group of Black women who were harassed by a white man in the middle of a photo shoot.
According to the photo posted by Brother Tyrone X, the women were approached by the man who claimed they were trespassing on his property. The video begins after the man threatens to call the police on the group, because he’s clearly so threatened by their photo shoot. The women in turn threaten to call the police due to his treatment.
The incident appears to have taken place in Texas due to the man’s Beto O’Rourke pin, a politician currently running against Senator Ted Cruz, Yahoo reports.
“Can you go get your paperwork sir?” one of the women demands in response to him saying he owns the property. “We don’t believe you.”
“I don’t care, you’re trespassing,” he says in response.
“This is my property, so I’m asking you to leave,” a second women’s voice says from behind referring to the photos. She makes her way into the frame, as the women awkwardly try to move to the side to get away from the man.
“I’m just going to be in your pictures,” he responds.
“That’s fine, it can be a group shot,” says the woman in return.
The man proceeds to stay in the frame, blocking the women from taking a shot.
“I can’t believe you permit model,” says the woman holding the camera. She also brings up the tragic death of Botham Jean, a Black man from Saint Lucia, who was shot and killed by, Amber Guyger a white Dallas, Texas officer who lived in the same building. Guyger claimed she mistakenly entered his apartment because she thought it was hers and fired two shots. Jean, later died from the injures. Neighbors have given conflicting reports to the police, alleging Guyger and Jean may have had a relationship prior to the shooting.
“Are you saying that just because I’m white?” the man replies.
“I’m saying that just because you’re getting goofy,” she answers.
Either way, if the man really did his homework, he’d find out that the woman were well within their rights according to Texas law. Sidewalks and areas between the sidewalk and the road are considered public property in the The Lone Star State.
