在自己入住的飯店講電話…卻因「身份問題」被保安盯上 二話不説請警察叫他打包行李離開!

儘管在現在這個社會,關於種族的偏見已經被消除,但很顯然的,社會上仍然有許多墨守成規的人。美國日前就有一名來自華盛頓州的黑人說,他因為要參加音樂會,在波特蘭入住了一家飯店。當時,他只是在大廳與母親講電話,卻被飯店保安懷疑是「可疑人物」,他甚至找來了警察,要求他馬上從這間飯店搬走!荒謬的經歷讓他完全傻眼,在自己個人的Instagram上公開了這件事,而且馬上就引起了許多討論。

這位男士是今天34歲的傑梅因·梅西 (Jermaine Massey) ,他在當天晚上去美國知名饒舌歌手Travis Scott的音樂會之前,入住到波特蘭的DoubleTree飯店。從音樂會回到飯店後,他在飯店大廳打電話給他的母親,目前到這裡都很正常,但後來他卻因為自己的「膚色」,被一名保安人員盯上。梅西在貼文中透露,這名保安直接打斷他的對話,問他是是不是飯店的客人,還問他房號,但因為他一時忘記了,所以他就直接把鑰匙拿給保安看。原本以為這樣就沒事了,沒想到他卻叫飯店經理去報警!

當地警方到達飯店後,警察就對他說,飯店經理說他擅自闖入,讓梅西選擇自己離開酒店或者要因為擅自入侵而被捕。梅西馬上就暴怒了,他後來決定換到另外一家飯店。警察還告訴他:「你可以從你的房間拿走隨身物品,然後退房,我們會護送你到別的飯店。」梅西表示,他原本以為警察來了可以解決問題,沒想到他們根本沒有想聽他的解釋。

後來,那家飯店的總經理Paul Peralta也發佈了一份聲明說:「客人和員工的安全是我們飯店的首要任務。對於發生的這起事件,我們感到很不幸,我們在此道歉。這件事已經結束了,而且我們是公共場所,不會歧視任何個人或團體。我很期待與梅西先生談談解決這個問題的方案。」許多網友在看了梅西的貼文後紛紛留下了:「飯店經理有被害妄想症吧?」、「怎麽還會有人有這種古代思想?」、「不要難過!有更多人愛你」等等正面的鼓勵言論。

Tonight I was racially profiled and discriminated against for taking a phone call in the lobby of my hotel room at the @doubletreepdx @doubletree. The security guard “Earl” decided that he would call the police on me, the exact reason is still unclear to me. He said that I was a safety threat to the other guests and that I was trespassing and said that I was a disturbance because I took a personal phone call from my mom in a more remote area of the lobby. The manager who actually called the cops, “Luis” actually asked me AFTER he called the cops, what happened? They already had in their minds that they didn’t want me there so I waited for the cops to show up and when they did, I explained my side of the story and they didn’t want to hear it. They asked me if I had personal items in my room (which of course I did) and asked me to go retrieve them. They told me that since the hotel requested me to leave, that if I didn’t I would be considered a trespasser and would be thrown in jail. I complied and cooperated and was not issued a refund for my room. I packed my stuff and went to another hotel. I cannot believe the level of professionalism that this hotel property had with me tonight. It is never ok to discriminate against guests for the color of their skin and to prejudge them based on your own bias against that race. Earl is a disgrace, calls himself a man but calls the Portland Police Dept on a man who was minding his own business in the lobby of his hotel. I had my hotel key in my hand the entire conversation, he knew I was a guest. He wanted to prove a point and did it in the worst way. Not really shocked that this happened but just extremely disappointed. I will be seeking justice. Believe that. @doubletree @doubletreepdx @hiltonhonors #hilton #hiltonhotels #racism #racisminamerica #racismisreal @shaunking
