Forest Whitaker was frisked at a store in NYC on Friday after an employee accused him of stealing. He was frisked in plain view of everyone. Of course, the pat down produced nothing. The employee then reportedly beg the Academy Award winning actor not to tell store management in fear that the episode would cost him his job. Forest, in turn, asked that the store change their behavior and treat the public in a fair and just manner in the future. See, not even an Academy Award can stop a Black man from being criminalized. Liberated from NewsOne.
