Black Republican Lawmaker Says He’s Repeatedly Pulled Over By Cops

Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina delivered a personal and revealing speech from the Senate floor Wednesday — saying he has personally faced racial discrimination from police, including being pulled over seven times in one year by cops.

“I want to go to a time in my life when I was an elected official and share just a couple of stories as an elected official. But please remember that in the course of one year, I’ve been stopped seven times by law enforcement officers. Not four, not five, not six, but seven times in one year as an elected official,” said Scott, the only black Republican in the Senate.

  1. I'm afraid the Senator can thank the extreme crime rate in the black community. There is no trust of STRANGERS who are black, due to experience. If their crime rate was anywhere close to that of whites, Asians, or even Hispanics, they would not be experiencing this. It makes extra work, requires more energy and paperwork, and possible physical risk. Why would they do that? Stop ignoring black crime rates. It is the engine driving all of this.
