Princeton professor cries ‘racism’ but she didn’t plan for dash cam that tells different story

A history professor, who was pulled over last week for speeding and then arrested for driving on a suspended license and having an outstanding warrant, blamed the entire episode on … racism.

She posted her complaint on social media — here are a few examples:

She also published a statement on Facebook, which said, in part:

Moreover my quarrel is not with paying a fine, or getting a ticket (even though we know such punishments are also disproportionately meted upon black people who often don’t have the resources to pay them.) I could afford to pay the fine, and I paid it without hesitation. No, my quarrel is with how I was treated. I cannot ever say definitively that this specific mistreatment was a result of race. But I can say that what I experienced was far more likely because my skin is a deep brown, my nose is round, and my hair is coily. And given the accumulation of police violence against Black people in this society, my fear at being stopped and arrested as a Black woman was warranted and even reasonable.


She later tweeted this:

Well, the New Jersey police released it alright. No address, but something else.

The the dash cam video shows that the arresting officer treated Princeton Professor Imani Perry with total professionalism and respect.
