Was Racial Profiling The Reason TI Was Pulled Over?

driving while black

Well that is what Andrew Young thinks. However, if they were in a Honda Accord or a Smart Car would this have happened?  “Deputies smelled a strong odor of marijuana emitting from the vehicle,” the Los Angeles sheriff’s department said. “A narcotics investigation ensued” and resulted in the arrests.  Even Andrew Young said:  “There’s another culture in L.A. that I don’t  understand” . “Most people in Los Angeles would wonder why he was stopped …  I don’t know why they should have been stopped … When a black man is stopped and not speeding … you call that driving while black.”Young noted a bit of symmetry between T.I.’s life and the role he plays in his just-released movie, “Takers.” “I didn’t particularly like him doing the movie,” Young said, explaining that the message was wrong. “Part of my hope was he would have a cultural shift as well as a personal shift.” In the movie, which the 29-year-old produced, T.I. plays a career criminal and gang member named “Ghost” who has just been released from prison. “Ghost” almost immediately starts planning a bank heist that is bigger than the one that previously sent “Ghost” to prison.  Honestly, I think when you turn away from things you make 180 degrees and not 360 or even a U-turn. I am not perfect…Who is? Do you all agree with Andrew Young? – Another Post by Courtney L.

  1. Reports clearly said that they made an illegal u-turn on a one way street, which prompted the police to pull them over. WTF is this post?

  2. I agree Sha If you break the law which T.I clearly did he deserves to be pulled over. Had he gotten away with just a warning or not even stopped, people would then be up and arms about celebrities being able to get away with any and everything. The minute we start to humanize our Celebrities or Role Models people start to cry foul.

  3. Honestly, I am sick and tired of hearing some of everybody but the people that were involved speak upon or defend the arrest. It happened, and thats that. Now I wonder if this was a non-celeb would it be such of a beg deal.. Hell Naw. This is a grown as man and even growner woman.They both have children and are in the spotlight right now. As for Tiny its alright to stand by your man, come on hun your dad is ill and you have a teenage daughter that you are setting an example for. I love TI’s music, but just because you are who your are does not give you an excuse to do what you are doing. Yes there are people out hear smoking weed and poppin pills but they not in the spotlight, you are cause you chose that career. Tiny is very grown enough to know right from wrong, and be like ” look bae, we gotta calm down. We are suppose to be setting an example” All these poeple out here trying to make excuses for these grown asses, Didnt she have a stroke from poppin pills, I hope they were not for her… Dmn you would think all those interviews and lectures, about what not to do would have opened their eyes. You talk about and apologize for what you did, but here you go again. I support your music and movies, but this I do not support.. Hopw the legal team can work them out a deal, but I wonder what will happen next?

  4. Even if it was Driving While Black – T.I. should have seen it coming. You know full well the cops are going to pull you over in a Maybach – how are you going to have your drugs on you? And fresh out of jail? SMH

    Side note: the cop in the pic, Gil Kerlikowske, is Obama’s “Drug Czar”

  5. hes stupid, He had a chance to change his life and he blew it.
    Hes young , rich, and dumb.
    Now lock his ass up before he snitch on tiny like he did them otha dudes

  6. Illegal U-turn = pull over and illegal substances =arrests just dumb choices if you must smoke do it at home.

  7. how in the fuck is that racist???? ti and tiny both look white…..c’mon folks….stop tryna be on their side…their both ignorant people…who have kids that need to be tooken care of, but yet instead they are in Cali livin it up…bad parents if u ask me…….

  8. all though the system is clearly bias, i.e lindsey being let out of jail due to over crowded(yeah right) ish did’nt happen to little kim. I totally agree with most of the posts here. I am shocked that TI would be so dumb. You are fresh out of JAIL with a big as bulls eye on your back.. (sorry, felons always get the side eye) and you go and do this you are rich smoke at home.. better yet pop your pills get blazed and have a driver tote you and your boo around town.. don t keep that ish in the car.. now look your back in trouble and could go back to jail.. nice TIP..

  9. I agree with you guys saying that he did the crime, so he has to pay the price. It was crazy of him to drive as such specially not being from LA at all. Racial profiling is coming into to play because just weeks ago Paris Hilton was pulled for coccaine and she got sent home…Maybe thats the reason Andrew Young made the assumption..I hate that since Obama been in office situations are turning into racial profiling! @onli_1erica….

  10. TI and Tiny are people. People make mistakes. Some people do over and over. We can state our opinion, only God can judge. Their family is on my prayer list.

  11. Oh please stop making excuses for this ignorant negro. Regardless of the reason he was pulled over the dummy should have known better not to have that junk on him in public. They both deserve whatever they get. And Tiny I have no words for her. You got kids. SMDH

  12. @ AH Y HE GOTTA B A NEGRO ? BUT ANYWAYS I DO AGREE WIT YALL Y WOULD HE HAVE SUM WEED ON HIM AND KNOWN DHAT HE NOT SUPPOSE 2 HAVE IHT . BUT , MY QUESTION IS Y DOES TINY OR HIM EVER HAVE DHEY KIDS WIT THEM AND THEY B TRYNA ACK LIKE EVERYTHING IS SO GOOD AND SHIT BUT ITS NOT , AND THEN HE WAS UP HERE TALKIN BOUT HOW HE HAS CHANGE AND SHIT WELL DHATS A DAYUM LIE BECKUS IF U DID U WOULDVE BEEN SMART OF NUFF NOT TO HAVE DAH WEED WIT YOU AND & A NOTHER ? IS HOW AND DAH IS U GONE GET PULL OVER FOR SMOKIN ? SHID IF THATS DAH CASE U MIGHT ELSE WELL PULL HALF OF DAH UNITED STATES OVER CUS HALF OF EVERYBODY SMOKE NOW WE CANT NAME ONE PERSON OUT OF THE UNITED STATES THAT DONT SMOKE ! &+ IT WAS THEY IN DHERE POSSESION

  13. even if that was the case, why are you smoking weed in the car, save the shizz for the privacy of your own home, had they not smelled weed in the vehicler they would not have been arrested even if they were pulled over for being black. another excuse for TI who got off like a fat rat on those damn machine gun charges.
