Is Driving While Black an Urban Myth?

 In the past, we have all heard stories of driving while black, or a minority in the USA, especially in the South. This past Monday, former CNN anchor T.J. Holmes was pulled over a mile away from his Atlanta home and quickly took to Twitter to document the entire ordeal.

The television personality tweeted a picture of a cop car in his side mirror with the caption “Driving while black ain’t no joke.” (Seen above)

Holmes did not mention that one of the officers who pulled him over was black.

The 34-year-old did say, however, that one of the officers, though he did not specify which, struggled to give an explanation for why he was pulled over.

“This is a damn shame. Officer is literally stumbling over his words trying to explain why he stopped me,” Holmes tweeted.

Holmes, left CNN in December 2011,. He will launch his new show, “Don’t Sleep!” on BET this October.

MY QUESTION IS .. DO YOU BELIEVE THAT THIS STILL EXIST?
