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

KABC screenshot

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

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.

    I think I’m more amazed that she could dance. Did she stay on beat? And yes, had it been me or my brother, we would be in awe over the number of bullet holes at the point in which an attempt was made to stop the car or get out of the car, turn up the volume, place our hands in our pockets, etc. How many officers actually danced with her in unison? Do we have the dash cam video of that?

  • Ingrid Bentil

    Panama, you nailed it. It Never would have happened like that for a Black Man or Woman!

    “There’s no way a Black dude does all of that and lives to tell about it.”

    Or Black woman.

    • girlgetalife

      Keep it 100!

        Figures, it is always racial.

        • Aye Bee

          Show us an occurrence where this has happened and the person was of color. It IS racial bc it is what it is. Of course we would like to say “race does not matter” but we would be lying o ourselves and that does not fix the problem.

    • brothaskeeper

      A Black woman can barely smoke a cigarette in a car with her name on the title….

    • nylahou

      I thought the EXACT same thing. No way a black man or woman would have survived this. For anyone (mainly on Fox) trying to criticize Black Lives Matter, they should compare this video to ones with black men and women who were obeying yet still didn’t survive.

    I’ll be back after I invent a few new curse words to express myself.

  • TD

    As Bougie Black Girl would say… “Le Sigh” and SMH.

  • iamnotakata

    Omg all of this! The first time I saw the clip I had to re watch the ish because I was like did she just stick her hands in her pocket and not get blown away….then I had to figure out what song she was dancing to, it couldn’t have been where ya at..because she was on nobodies beat…all this was allowed to occur cuz white…this is privilege!

    • Whys_Words

      Yes. Irony at it’s finest…..crazy thing about this video was I completely forgot about rubber bullets!! SMH

      • Wizznilliam

        Right?!?!.. What happened to rubber bullets? Can they go back to using those? And I remember people used to complain about people getting tased too much.. Now they just shoot you.

        • Rubber bullets are mostly for riot gear and control.

          They used to bring them out when I was in college and all the white kids would riot over the sports. Rubber bullets kill too tho

  • LadyIbaka

    I bet her name is Becky Priviledge and she only dates Tyrone, and hangs out with Shontrella, but will marry Gary Hooks, the next President of ‘Murica. Thus was funny doe!

    • I was expecting Becky. But Becky Priveledge marrying Gary Hooks got me.

    • Jennifer

      Honestly, I just wanna find Tyrone, watch the video together, smack him across the face, and ask, “BRUH, really?!?!?”

  • Charlisia Nwachukwu

    It took me a while to tap into my black rage.. I was bobbing my head along with her dance.. killed it. She should have hit the Quan at that very moment for an epic finish.

  • Brass Tacks

    I’m not saying she should’ve been shot. However, that jig alone was definitely worth a couple rubber pellets to the stomach and/or thigh.

    • Tesha Groom

      Why was I thinking the same thing? Lmao

    • brothaskeeper

      I wish she had turned around to bust into a twerk, only to catch a taser barb in the bewdy…

      • nillalatte

        Now THAT would have been worth the 15 seconds of fame. lol

    • James Darling Jr

      LMAO!!!!!!!!!!
