在自己入住的饭店讲电话…却因「身份问题」被保安盯上 二话不说请警察叫他打包行李离开!

尽管在现在这个社会,关于种族的偏见已经被消除,但很显然的,社会上仍然有许多墨守成规的人。美国日前就有一名来自华盛顿州的黑人说,他因为要参加音乐会,在波特兰入住了一家饭店。当时,他只是在大厅与母亲讲电话,却被饭店保安怀疑是「可疑人物」,他甚至找来了警察,要求他马上从这间饭店搬走!荒谬的经历让他完全傻眼,在自己个人的Instagram上公开了这件事,而且马上就引起了许多讨论。

这位男士是今天34岁的杰梅因·梅西 (Jermaine Massey) ,他在当天晚上去美国知名饶舌歌手Travis Scott的音乐会之前,入住到波特兰的DoubleTree饭店。从音乐会回到饭店后,他在饭店大厅打电话给他的母亲,目前到这里都很正常,但后来他却因为自己的「肤色」,被一名保安人员盯上。梅西在贴文中透露,这名保安直接打断他的对话,问他是是不是饭店的客人,还问他房号,但因为他一时忘记了,所以他就直接把钥匙拿给保安看。原本以为这样就没事了,没想到他却叫饭店经理去报警!

 

当地警方到达饭店后,警察就对他说,饭店经理说他擅自闯入,让梅西选择自己离开酒店或者要因为擅自入侵而被捕。梅西马上就暴怒了,他后来决定换到另外一家饭店。警察还告诉他:「你可以从你的房间拿走随身物品,然后退房,我们会护送你到别的饭店。」梅西表示,他原本以为警察来了可以解决问题,没想到他们根本没有想听他的解释。

后来,那家饭店的总经理Paul Peralta也发布了一份声明说:「客人和员工的安全是我们饭店的首要任务。对于发生的这起事件,我们感到很不幸,我们在此道歉。这件事已经结束了,而且我们是公共场所,不会歧视任何个人或团体。我很期待与梅西先生谈谈解决这个问题的方案。」许多网友在看了梅西的贴文后纷纷留下了:「饭店经理有被害妄想症吧?」、「怎么还会有人有这种古代思想?」、「不要难过!有更多人爱你」等等正面的鼓励言论。

 

以下就是他亲自在Instagram拍摄的影片:

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
