Michigan man files lawsuit in ’gardening while black’ case

A black man in Michigan is suing three women who he claims repeatedly fabricated charges against him to stop him from gardening at a public park in his old neighborhood. Marc Peeples, 33, claims the three women filed various false reports from July 2017 to May 2018, including that he was a convicted pedophile, as he tried to build a community garden.

With the money he's going to win, he could build a really nice garden.

Interesting matchup. Is this a case of a black male pulling the race card to get his way, or white females pulling the metoo card to bully an innocent man? Place your bets, everyone. Who will the courts side with? 🤗

There is one thing I don’t understand, why is race a factor here. Other then him saying that they didn’t want a black man there, I don’t see evidence of that. Harassment, yes. But I don’t see that harassment being race motivated. Maybe I’m missing that part of the story. One article mentioned the women had plans for where he was doing the garden, but never state what. So I’m just not convinced it is a race thing. But the race thing does make it more newsworthy and maybe that is why they say it in the article and the guy not trying to file a hate crime charge.

I believe this story. I’m not surprised that women called the cops on a black man in Detroit. She had probably never seen a black man in Detroit. There aren’t any black men in Detroit so it’s a great place for people who can’t handle seeing black people to live.

I am a 68 year old caucasian woman. I hope he gets everything he asks for. I thought making false police reports was a crime. I believe people who make them should serve time in jail. If it involves ethnicity, at least doing a lot of community service with that ethnic group. Or walking around in front of their victims homes wearing big signs, front and back, saying "I lied to the police" and details of the lies.

I call BS on the attorney pulling the race card. These awful women would have done the same thing to any man in their way.

Why doesn't it have to be a race issue? Right wouldn't be a story otherwise. lol Yes he should sue those ladies, but come on $300,000 seems a bit high. lol Would be awesome to see him win that and put into the park.

Gardening 'while black'? What the arse does that even mean? Do they think he's a Doppelganger who changes skins at will for some furtive gardening?
