Police Pull White Chick Over. She Gets Out and Dances To Future (and Drake). Lives.

In what can only be described as the PUREST form of white privilege available to date, a woman in Los Angeles stole a Ford Focus, led cops on a police chase, and when she rolled over a spike and blew out a tire, bringing an end to said chase

…she turnt up.

To Future and Drake’s “Where Ya At?”

And by turnt up, I mean she got out of the car, fumbled with her clothes, danced, put her hands in her pockets, danced some more, got BACK into the car and I presume was eventually apprehended by police…alive.

While you can HEAR the police telling her to put her hands up, she turns her back to them and pulls at her clothing in order to straighten herself out. Terribly, mind you. She deliberately ignores the police, does a quick dance AT the cops almost challenging them to a Dancing With The Stars dance off, then is like “fuck it, I’ll just wear these then…” and gets back into the car to continue her shenanigans. She went beast mode with the amount of fucks she didn’t give.

I won’t say the video infuriated me, but holy shit, bro. Have you seen the movie A Time To Kill? Do you remember when Matthew McConaughey, playing Jake Brigance, was giving his closing remarks the in his defense of Carl Lee Hailey (Samuel L. Jackson) who killed the men who raped his daughter ? He gave that whole spiel where he described to the jury what likely happened to Carl Lee’s daughter who was raped and what the scene must have looked like, playing on the jury’s sympathies by telling them the story of what happened to the little girl…then imploring the jury to imagine such a tragedy happening to a white girl, which, let’s be real, nobody could.

This is like that in reverse.

So I’m asking you…close your eyes and try to picture a Black dude being stopped and getting out of his car and dancing to anybody, putting his hands in his pocket, fumbling with his clothes, getting back in the car, etc.

You probably can’t. Because it wouldn’t happen. Ever. There’s no way a Black man puts his hands back in his pocket and doesn’t get lit up like the Fourth of July. Shit, getting out of the car might have caught him a bullet. There’s no way a Black dude does all of that and lives to tell about it.

Just imagining how many times the guy would have been shot is harrowing.

In short, this is amazing.

“Where ya at?” indeed. To be clear, I don’t want her to have been shot (or shot at). I’m glad she didn’t. I’m glad this story has some humor to it. It IS funny. But it’s funny because she’s alive. She was given the opportunity to pay for her crime. Actions come with consequences. It’s just amazing to think of what those consequences would have looked like if this was another type of human being.

I’m glad she got to dance, though.

Panama Jackson is pretty fly (and gorgeous) for a light guy. He used to ship his frito to Tito in the District, but shipping prices increased so he moved there to save money. He refuses to eat cocaine chicken. When he's not saving humanity with his words or making music with his mouth, you can find him at your mama's mama's house drinking her fine liquors. Most importantly, he believes the children are our future. You can hit him on his hitter at panamadjackson@gmail.com.

    • nillalatte

      LOL.. I was looking at her like, ‘What da fuq? Is you crazy?’ I think the cops were waiting to see if she was gonna strip. What man is gonna shoot a woman gettin’ naked, in the street, bopping to Where Ya At? lol

      • Breezyx2

        Nilla, there is so much to unpack here. But you are right. What man IS going shot a woman for essentially giving him a semi striptease show? They all was probably standing there talking about “get let her finish.”

  • Crystal J @ DD Goose

    ” Sh!t, getting out of the car might have caught him a bullet.” Yeah…what you said.

  • White folks get to be creative with police:

    This clip is the best white privilege gif ever

        210! (Had to.)

  • miss t-lee

    There’s not even an invented word to describe this level of privilege.

      Remember the cop in South Carolina pulled up behind a Black guy at a gas station just as he had gotten out of his car? The cop told him to show him his license and when he reached back into the car to get it the cop shot him.

      That’s what I thought about after seeing this. She’s going in and out of the car while being told not to. The Black guy in SC gets shot for following directions.

        Damn!

      • cakes_and_pies

        I’m so happy that cop got fired and he received an actual settlement.

      • PhlyyPhree

        That’s the exact same incident that popped in my head while watching this clip. I don’t really have words to express my emotions right now. I’m just….AMAZED

      • miss t-lee

        I remember this case, and I remember dude asking the cop why he’d been shot.
        F*ckery.

    • Not exactly, no. But bullsh*t is pretty close.

      • miss t-lee

        Only pretty close…lol

    • She’s a colonized continent and starting a world war from being the whitest person ever.

  • always right

    Had she been shot by the cops, the media would have probably blamed it on rap anyway. “That evil rap music made her behave badly.”

    • JustKit

      She had mental issues, she came from an unstable home, she was seeking help for a drug addiction…

  • Wizznilliam

    All I could think about was the cops yelling, “She’s reaching!! She’s reaching!!”… as she was pulling down her shirt.. No doubt that’s what they would have been saying if she was a black or hispanic dude..

  • Had she been black, she would’ve been sniped from the helicopter

    • Epsilonicus

      She woulda been shot in the car if the chase went too long.

        By someone standing on the hood of the car-while feeling threatened…#100+shots #ohio2015

        • Anytime these cops are dealing with a black assailant, they leave reality, and return to their daily Call of Duty sessions.

  • Simone_was_taken

    In my little imaginary world, the white girl will tell Dateline that she purposely stole the car, finally when stopped, got out, acted like a plum fool in all her white privilege glory, just to show the masses the difference between how cops handle a white girl then how it would’ve been handled if she was a black person. I can dream….

    • PhlyyPhree

      Look. LOOK!!!! Call me Martin because I TOO HAD THIS SAME EFFIN DREAM!!!!

      • TellinTruths

        I had to sign into my Discus just to tell you how funny that was. I had to read it twice and then I bust out laughing.

        Me Tooooooo!

    • Wizznilliam

      How awesome would that be… But yeah right.. She most likely one of them who claim that she don’t have any privileged and black folks are the ones that get all the breaks..

    • Jaymoi Rochelle

      Yes same here????

    • Gigi Sev

      I’m patiently waiting for said interview because I feel like it’s going to be airing on dateline any day now with a title that reads some thing like woman who challenged police to a dance off wants you to know she did it cause black lives matter

    • Antigonie Mcgee

      I thought the exact same thing.
