4 days in Nigeria and I’ve already been profiled as a criminal by the Nigeria police force because I have braids — Washington DC Police officer laments

Nigerian man who is a police officer in Washington DC recently shared a photo of himself and wrote: “4 days in Nigeria & I have already been profiled as a criminal by the Nigeria police force.

They profile people based on looks. Male with dreads, braids and so on. I work for the Washington DC as a police officer and I have braids. Enough of the profiling!
