Sup Travellers?! Don't you hate when you're just sitting outside your OWN house, enjoying an ice cream THAT YOU DID NOT STEAL and a police officer points a gun in your face accusing you of committing a crime? I mean --- that's the worse, isn't it? [LOL]

We can safely laugh at the video above but it does have some serious aspects to it. It shows a black man being heckled by an officer for doing basically nothing. The officer goes all commando rogue on the black man and even becomes a stormtrooper.

The video comes in the midst of a nationwide conversation about the "criminalization of the black body," a phenomenon in which the act of walking while black -- or, as is the case in this clip, sitting on your porch eating ice cream while black -- is met with violence and bullets. It's as absurd of a reality as it is a damning one.

The video was uploaded by "Funny Or Die" on August 27th 2014. You should definitely check it out. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
