Jim Jones: ‘White Cops Harassed Me Because I’m Black!’

jim-jones-341x478Rapper and reality show star Jim Jones (pictured) says he was a victim of racial profiling last week, when he was ordered to step out of his vehicle at New Jersey’s Newark International Airport as four police officers searched his vehicle for drugs, according to TMZ.

Reportedly, Jones was sitting in his car waiting for a friend to arrive at an airport terminal, when an officer strolled over to him claiming that he smelled marijuana wafting out of his vehicle.

The officer was soon joined by three other men in blue as they demanded that the hip-hop star exit his vehicle and walk to its rear (pictured below).

Jones was then ordered to place both hands on the trunk of his car as officers reportedly began ransacking the vehicle searching for any evidence of drugs or contraband.  They also searched Jones from head to toe.

After police conducted their search and came up empty, they still issued Jones a citation for driving without a license.

According to an unnamed representative for Jones, the performer is up in arms about the incident, telling TMZ, “He was searched for nothing more than racial profiling.”

What does the New York/New Jersey Port Authority has to say about the incident?  A spokesperson from the “bridge and tunnel set” told TMZ that they are “looking into the matter.”

  • I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and entertaining, and without a doubt,
    you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue that too few people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I came across this during my search for something regarding this.

  • Do you mind if I quote a couple of your articles as long as I
    provide credit and sources back to your site? My blog is in the very same area of interest as
    yours and my visitors would really benefit from some of
    the information you present here. Please let me know if this okay with you.
