A black delivery driver in Oklahoma was blocked by a white man who didn't want the driver to leave his gated community until he explained why he was there. The driver, who eventually broke down in tears, was detained by the man – and another neighborhood resident who joined in – for over 30 minutes.
[Travis] Miller, 42, told NBC News that his customer in Edmond gave him the code to get through the neighborhood's gate. After completing the delivery and as they were trying to exit, a man who identified himself as David Stewart and a board member of the homeowners' association can be seen on the video questioning Miller and his co-worker about why they were on his street.
Miller said in the video that he was trying to make a U-turn and that as he turned around, the man was blocking him in with a white Subaru.
"If I go around him, I'm going to have to drive on somebody's property and I don't want to make a bad situation worse," Miller said in the video.
Miller repeatedly asked the man to move the car.
"I'm not moving," the man said. "All you have to do is tell me where you're going."
Miller refused, saying he did not have to tell the man anything.

Jeremy O. Harris’s Slave Play is meant to be provocative—certainly moreso than most other Broadway productions that transfer from Off Broadway theatres. The play itself is about a group of interracial couples who go to a kind of psychosexual couples’ therapy that involves BDSM, reflecting Antebellum master-slave dynamics. During previews, the show even hosted a “Black […]
Thoughts and prayers. Video games are fucking folks up. He’s white so let’s call it mental illness. Apologists for the far right talking shit.

When revved-up kids used to dribble a basketball through the kitchen or practice their footwork with a soccer ball in front of the television, exasperated parents would often just send ‘em outside to play.
