White man interrupts group of black women having a photo shoot in viral video
A group of black women is faced with an annoying white man who refuses to let them take a photo on his alleged property.
A group of black women was in the middle of a photo shoot on a sidewalk in Texas when a white man kept harassing them to leave. The incident was caught on video and the unidentified man who’s now referred to as “Permit Model” has become infamous.
According to a video posted by a man who goes by the name Brother Tyrone X, the women who were taking pictures along a sidewalk were approached by the white man and asked to leave because he claimed they were trespassing on his property. When they refused, he threatened to call the police to which the women responded that they would do the same for his maltreatment of them.
One of the women then demands the man to show her documents to prove he owned the property and tells him “We don’t believe you.” The man responds by saying, “I don’t care, you’re trespassing.”
In the clip that Brother Tyrone X posted, the confrontation continues with the man insisting the women leave as he tried to get in the way of them taking a photo. He kept staying inside the frame as the woman being photographed tried to move away.
“I’m just going to be in your pictures,” he says. And the woman behind the camera replies, “That’s fine, it can be a group shot.”
The man continues to be a nuisance by blocking the women from taking the pictures.
Meanwhile, the woman behind the camera reminded him of the case of Botham Jean, a black man who was mistakenly shot to death by a white female police officer when she thought he was an intruder in her home. The police officer, Amber Guyger, mistook Jean’s home for hers and fired a shot at him when she saw him upon entering the house.
“Are you saying that just because I’m white?” the man says.
The woman replies, “I’m saying that just because you’re getting goofy.”
The video has since been circulating the internet with stories highlighting the man’s ignorance. It turns out he had no right to ban the women from taking photos in the sidewalk. According to Texas law, sidewalks and areas between them are public property.
This case is quite similar to a white woman who threatened to call the police on an eight-year-old black girl who she claimed was illegally selling water in the street. She was dubbed “Permit Patty” and was later forced to step down from her cannabis business after her inconsiderate act went viral.
Meanwhile, a white man was also fired from his job after he called the cops on a black woman and her child accusing them of trespassing in his neighborhood’s swimming pool. It turns out after police arrived and sorted the problem, the woman was a homeowner of the community and had every right to use the pool. The white man had doubted her previously even when she told him she lived there. The woman felt she had been racially profiled since she was the only black person at the pool at that time.
