A white woman sees a black man inspecting a house and calls the cops. But there’s a twist!

The police show up — and arrests, or angry conversations, or cries of racism follow.

That seemed to be the trajectory of an incident in Memphis earlier this month, but then there was an unusual twist. When the police showed, they backed the black guy.

A wave, then a dispute

On May 5, African-American real estate investor Michael Hayes was inspecting a house he’s interested in buying in a Memphis neighborhood.

He was pulling a board off the boarded-up home’s front down when a woman next door came outside. Hayes said he waved to her. The woman, who is white, asked him what he was doing. He pointed to the sign he had placed in the front yard.

“I told her that I had a contract and that I was an investor,” Hayes, who wanted to get inside the house to take pictures, told CNN. “But she wasn’t listening to that. She didn’t want to hear it.”

She said he had no right to be in her neighborhood and should leave, Hayes said. Then she called the police.

The police show up

At this point Hayes, who often records his activities as a real estate investor for his YouTube channel, pulled out his smartphone and started recording.

He was rolling when a squad car from the Memphis Police Department rolled up. The video shows Hayes explaining why he was at the home to a Memphis police officer.

The officer, soon joined by a second officer, seems to be convinced that Hayes has done nothing wrong and tells him that if he has anymore problems with the woman to call him back over to the house “and she will go to jail today.”

The officer then walks over to the woman’s yard and talks to her, warning her to leave Hayes alone.

“He’s just gonna go in there and do what he’s got to do. You’re going to let him do what he’s going to do,” the officer, motioning to Hayes and the house, says to the woman. “If you try to do anything to stop him, I’m going to take you to jail.”

Hayes then asks if one of the officers will stay on the scene for about five minutes so that he can finish his work.

A police report on the confrontation was not filed because “no criminal act was committed,” Lt. Karen Rudolph of the Memphis Police Department told CNN in a statement. “This incident was handled as an on-scene complaint.”

The woman’s version

Hayes commended the police officers for protecting him, saying the officers “handled it perfectly” and made him feel safe. He also alluded that the woman called the police on him simply because of his race.

“This type of stuff is still going on,” he said in the video. “You know why the lady called the police on me.”

CNN has reached out to the woman, Tiffany Albert, and is waiting to hear back.

But in an interview with CNN affiliate WMC, Alebert said she made her look like a racist.

“I’m Spanish,” Albert said. “My boyfriend is black. It’s nothing racist about it.”

Albert said people used the house to do drugs before the city finally boarded it up. She didn’t want the boards removed, she said.

“It took us so long to get these two houses boarded up,” Albert told the affiliate.

The entire incident shocked Hayes, he told CNN, because “I didn’t give her any reason to believe I was a threat, but she perceived me as a one.”

When UPS Delivered This Package To His Door, He Wanted To Show Everyone Why It Was Racist!

Sean Carter is a Harvard-educated attorney who currently practices law in Arizona. Despite this, he fears every day for his life and the lives of his family – solely because they are black. While many people would say racism is a thing of the past, the minorities of today are opening up about the racism of today. Carter decided to share his experience receiving a package that wasn’t intended for him as an example.

“This package has been sitting outside my house for days now. Why? Because we are black. And yes, I’ll explain,” the Phoenix resident wrote.

The package was apparently addressed to a family that lived just a few blocks down the street. Carter anticipated that people online would ask why he didn’t just bring the package himself, and that is the basis for his post.

“It’s extremely unsafe to send our boys to the home of any family that we don’t know in this predominantly white neighborhood. Why? Because there is a realistic chance that one of my neighbors will see my boy as a threat and call the police or even pull a gun,” he continued.

He recommends anyone that thinks he is exaggerating to google, “Brennan Walker.” Walker is a 14-year-old high school freshman who recently was shot at by a white man after he tried to ask her for directions.

The incident happened in early April after Walker slept in by accident and had to walk to school. He lost his way and approached the house. Walker knocked on the door and found a woman in hysterics. Security footage shows that she cried out to herself, “Why did these people choose my home?” This was just after he knocked on the door.

Jeffrey Ziegler has now been charged with assault with intent to murder and a felony firearm charge according to the local news reports. He could spend the rest of his life in prison after trying to kill this young man who simply tried knocking on a neighbor’s door for help.

“I feel terrible for the young man; I feel terrible for the mom and the anxiety that they had to go through,” Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard said in an interview with WJBK in Michigan. “We are going to ask for every charge permissible for this guy who stepped up and fired a shotgun because someone knocked on his door.”

In his Facebook post, Carter makes a really good point. While some white Americans may think that racism is a thing of the past, the fact is these minorities are legitimately worried about their lives. To the point that they won’t even bring a package to a neighbor – and that is not okay.

“THAT is why the f-king package will be sitting on my porch until UPS retrieves it. Because I can’t trust that my white neighbors won’t see me, a Harvard-educated lawyer (or my 14 yo honor student son) as a roaming homicidal maniac. That’s what it’s like to be black in ‘post-racial’ America,” Carter wrote.

DISTURBING: Man Hires The Ku Klux Klan . . . To LYNCH His Black Neighbor!!

A South Carolina man was arrested for attempting to hire white supremacists from the Ku Klux Klan to kill his black neighbor, lynch him from a tree, and install a “flaming cross” in his front yard, police says.

Brandon Cory Lecroy, 25, of Hodges, South Carolina, was indicted by a federal grand jury on one count of solicitation to commit a crime of violence and one count of using interstate commerce facilities in the commission of murder for hire, the U.S. attorney’s office in South Carolina announced.

The FBI claims that in March Brandon contacted a white supremacist organization, asking them to “murder of his African American neighbor,” according to a court affidavit.

An undercover FBI agent subsequently recorded multiple phone calls with Brandon, where he asked to have his neighbor, who is identified only as “FJ” in the court documents, killed. “$500 and he’s a ghost,” Brandon told the undercover FBI agent in one of the recorded calls, in which he also requested his neighbor be hung from a tree and a “flaming cross” installed in his front yard, the affidavit says. In a subsequent phone conversation in March,

Brandon told the FBI agent he planned to take over the victim’s property and wanted to buy a 9 mm “ghost gun” that would be untraceable, according to the FBI account.

Brandon met with the undercover FBI agent on April 9 during which he pointed out where his neighbor lived, discussed potential future targets, and provided a $100 cash down payment for the alleged murder for hire, the affidavit says.

He was arrested later that day.

Three Dot Tattoos Are Popping Up All Over. Cops Now Warn If You See One, Get Far Away Fast!!

Look at people on the street and you’re bound to find gang tattoos. Although you might think gangs are only popular in places like New York City or Los Angeles, the truth is that gangs have infiltrated every neighborhood in America. From Oklahoma to Nebraska to Alaska to Florida, gang activity is up. And you need to increase your knowledge to help keep your family safe and out of harm’s way.

Gangs use tattoos as street signs to broadcast allegiance. Learn the following eleven different ones to protect you and your family today!

White supremacists can be some of the most violent people. And they’re often associated with numbers “14” and “88”. When used in a tattoo form, these numbers often identify neo-Nazi prison inmates. The 14 stands for a Nazi quote and the 88th is shorthand for HH because H is the eighth letter in the alphabet meaning “Heil Hitler.”

Cobweb tattoos are common on people’s elbows. But they represent a long stint in prison often when gang ties were formed.

Teardrop tattoos are one of the most common found. Meanings for this tattoo change depending on location. Often they indicate a murder committed – often in the name of the gang.

See a five-pointed crown on a man and it probably means loyalty to the dangerous Latin Kings gang. Find a crown on a woman and it often means she is the victim of sex trafficking.

Three dots near the eyes means the “mi vida loca” gang lifestyle. Watch out for people with this tattoo as it means they may be unaffiliated.

Five dots represent hard prison time. Often referred to as “quincunx” the four marks on the outside represent the four walls of the prison whereas the fifth represents the incarcerated inmates. These people are not afraid of their criminal past and are eager to show their prison experience.

The Aryan Brotherhood passionately uses tattoos to signify gang membership. Look for an “AB” tattoo and you’ve likely found a member of the violent gang. Besides the initials, they often turn to clover leaves, Nazi symbols and swastikas to demonstrate their love for the gang.

MS13 is a violent gang. Watch out for anyone with big letters “MS” on their skin. They’re likely part of Mara Salvatrucha gang which is associated with Salvadorian immigrants. They are extremely violent gang members and roam much of the American southwest.

A.C.A.B is a common British tattoo that stands for “All Cops Are B*stards”. You can find this on the knuckles of angry gang members and inmates. They are out for blood for many cops and this tattoo could be coming to America soon with all the anti-cop rhetoric flooding the streets.

Beware of E.W.M.N. tattooed people. This stands for “Evil, Wicked, Mean and Nasty.” And no they aren’t referring to Hillary Clinton. This tattoo signifies a person who has this kind of attitude. They might be willing to do anything to prove that to you as well.

Do you feel more prepare to protect your family from people associated with gangs now?
