May 17, 2018 15:38

Bob Marley’s granddaughter, Donisha Prendergast, and two of her friends were moving out of the Airbnb rental in a predominantly white neighborhood when suddenly the police stopped them. It turned out that their white neighbor called the police on them.

Attorney of Donisha and her friends said:

There was an individual that placed this racist call with false allegations to the Rialto Police Department on April 30. And we want her held accountable.

According to neighbor’s statement, Donisha and her friends, filmmaker Kelly Fyffe-Marshall and Afrofuturist artist Komi-Oluwa Olafimihan, didn’t wave hello at her when they placed their belongings in the car. So the woman suspected the robbery and decided to call the police.

After three women explained the situation, showed Airbnb booking and messages with the host on the app, and even called the host on the phone, the police still didn’t believe them.

Kelly Fyffe-Marshall says their case is just a part of the wave of stories when people call the police on black people for doing nothing bad:

From what happened in the Waffle House to what happened in the Yale dorms, all the things that are coming up, it's getting out of hand, and now it seems as a black person you can't live.

The police didn’t agree with such statement. They claim the woman did what was needed at that moment:

In this matter, officers followed departmental policies and producers in handling this reported in-progress residential burglar call and we are very appreciate of the cooperation shown by its residents and visitors.

Nevertheless, many people find this story rather embarrassing and violating the right of black people. What do you think about this case?
