A Black man in Texas apparently had too many credit cards for a police officer’s liking — and ended up having to prove they were his.
The incident went down recently at a gas station in Burleson, a suburb of Fort Worth, and video shows one of the officers asking the man to prove the numerous cards in his wallet are his.
The guy explains he’s in a rush to help his wife, whose car he says had broken down, but police make him slowly cycle through all the credit cards in his wallet so they can match the names on the cards to his ID.
The man wonders why cops are making a big fuss, and one officer tells him someone in the store thought he was acting suspiciously.
At one point, the officer outrageously asks the man how he ended up in the suburb and everything checks out in the end … but now the guy is saying the entire interaction was racist.
Hard to argue.
According to the police department, the officers in question approached the man after his cards were declined.
