Seriously? Calling the police on a kid for accidentally brushing against your butt with his bag?
Add "Cornerstore Caroline" to the list of #LivingWhileBlack antagonists. This time, a woman accuses a kid of sexual harassment, but onlookers say he only brushed against her backside
A shocking video of a white woman calling the cops on a nine-year-old black boy at a Brooklyn bodega has people on social media outraged after the woman claimed she was “sexually assaulted” by him. Onlookers however say the child simply brushed up against her backside, Raw Story reported.
The video, posted on Facebook, has garnered more than 3 million views since Wednesday. The video shows the woman, making the call as the mother of the boy and her children stand by confused by the events unfolding. Some children can be heard crying as well.
“The son grabbed my ass,” the white woman told the police operator. “And she decided to yell at me.”
“I just was sexually assaulted by a child,” she continued, however at no point in the video did she mention that she tried to address the issue with his mother first. She is even brash enough to wave at the camera recording her.
Onlookers took issue with the woman’s claim, calling it bogus.
“Are you seriously calling the police?” another white woman said, irately confronting the caller, who then begins to argue with her “one white girl to another.”
The man who filmed dubbed the woman “Cornerstore Caroline” who called the cops because “a little kid brushed up against her and touched her on her butt,” he said.
“Why don’t you upload that to Worldstar,” the angry woman said to the man filming, referring to the popular urban website Worldstarhiphop.com, which is known for over the top videos that go viral.
Interestingly enough, the location where the woman is making the call on the boy, happens to be in Flatbush, Brooklyn, a neighborhood under the jurisdiction of a New York State senator who proposed a law that penalizes people for making frivolous calls against blacks.
The woman claimed to be a cop in the video but but it is unclear if that is true. However, her call did not seem to give a description of the scene or suspects as would a normal police dispatch.
Some called for the woman to be arrested and sympathized with the family.
“I hope they arrested her ass for impersonating a cop and if she is actually a cop her ass should be fired. This is a prime example of white privilege. No boundaries, no respect and feels completely entitled. Karma is a bitch lady. You will get it back,” said user D Miller Smith.
Said user Linda Dozier: “My heart broke for that little boy…look what these crazies have done..I will Not take this anymore.”
