US Poet Amanda Gorman claims that she was racially profiled by security

Amanda Gorman has claimed that she was racially profiled by a security guard who ’tailed me on my walk home tonight.’ Gorman, the youngest inaugural poet in history, who is also a Harvard graduate and National Youth Poet Laureate said the security guard demanded if she lived there because ’you look suspicious’. The soon to be 23-year-old described the incident as ’the reality of black girls.’

Are bl@ck people exempt from scrutiny? I bet a white guy dressed like a gangsta wannabe would get scrutiny too. (note: This app gets triggered by the word "bl@ck"?)

Isn't this the same chick who had the big kerfuffle over the DUTCH translator for her book being white? I mean, sure, there must be hundreds of black authors capable of fluent translation into Dutch right? /s

This is a waste of a news story because there is not enough information to determine whether “racial profiling” did or did not occurr. Does the security guard check on people of other races that he deems suspicious, and are his suspicions consistently based on objective, non-racial factors? We have no way to access his motives, history, or patterns and there is no indication of her behavior prior to the incident. This describes one incident, very briefly, from one person’s perspective, to which multiple assumptions have been added. Instead of publishing assumptions, the lazy “journalists” should have investigated the situation and published their observations. Then we would have something to talk about. Moving on ...

Just a tweet is newsworthy? No time, no context, no statement from the other side? Maybe this deserves an article at TMZ, but not actual news outlets.
