Black-ish star and Comedian Keraun Harris has gone viral this week with an inspiring story of allyship.
We are living in an era of change.
via: GettyEver since the horrifying murder of George Floyd, the Black Lives Movement has never before been so prominent.
After centuries of institutional racism, people are finally taking a stand...
via: GettyAnd change is finally on the horizon.
However, not everyone has been quite so understanding of the message.
via: GettyAmid the millions of BLM protestors, there are, of course, a handful of people who are adamant about going against everything the movement stands for.
For the most part, these people are standing valiantly behind homemade "All Lives Matter" signs...
via: GettyOr are simply trying to argue that people of color are not treated any differently to white people. (Spoiler: They definitely are.)
But, sadly, there have been some instances of police officers continuing to spur on this message of hate.
via: GettyI know, it's painfully ironic, isn't it?
Police brutality has been happening in this country for centuries now...
via: GettyAnd black people have proven to be the more popular target for these disgraceful cops more than any other ethnic group.
So, amid all the awareness the BLM protests have raised regarding the issue...
via: GettyYou'd think that these police officers would have taken a step back to evaluate their actions, right?
Well, you'd be wrong.
via: GettyBecause, this week, yet another horrifying instance of racially-motivated police brutality has emerged.
Except this one has a happy ending.
via: GettyAnd it was shared on Twitter by Keraun Harris.
Comedian Keraun Harris took to Twitter to tell his story.
via: Twitter"I just got pulled over, and for the first time, I watched a white woman record my whole traffic stop," he explained.
"As a black man you're used to this, you always guilty until proven innocent."
via: Twitter"I'm just sitting in my car waiting and as I'm waiting, I look to the left and I see this car parked and it's a white woman in the car."
The woman was recording the traffic stop on her phone.
via: Twitter"As a black man, you're not used to your allies," Harris said. "But we really got allies now." And people on Twitter are loving the story.
