A black father was trying to cheer his son at his football game when a white woman, a field marshal, reported him to the police. She allegedly felt unsafe around the man, even though he tried to leave the game to avoid any inconvenience.


A children’s football game in Jacksonville, Florida was interrupted when a woman on a golf cart decided to call the police on the father of one of the kids. According to witnesses of the situation, the woman claimed the man had been disrespectful and was trying to start a fight with the referee, but the man was just trying to cheer on his son.


When Gerald Jones noticed that his 13-year-old son was not happy about a call of the referee and was ready to argue about it, but having watched the play, Jones knew the referee was right, so he started screaming at his son to respect the referee’s decision.

That’s when a woman in a golf cart, dubbed by netizens as “Golfcart Gail,” drove up to him to ask him to stop yelling and remind that harassment would not be tolerated in the field. When Jones proceeded to explain that he was just talking to his son, the woman threatened to call the St. Johns County sheriff's deputies.


Jones then tried to leave the game to avoid any inconvenience, but the woman informed him she had already called the cops because she didn't feel safe after his "threatening behavior.”

Ginger Galore Williams, a mother who witnessed the whole exchange and recorded videos of the police talking to Jones and the woman, shared a post on Facebook recounting the situation. She said:

“This man was peacefully leaving his own son’s soccer game to avoid exactly this situation. Shame on you Golfcart Gail for what you did to this man and to the children who had to see this. Can you imagine how afraid his child must have been to see this happening?!”


After police arrived at the place, Jones calmly explained what went down. The field marshal, on the other hand, stated that Jones had been “nasty with her.” However, witnesses at the scene reassured the police that Jones never threatened the woman.

In the end, Jones had to leave the game anyway.

Speaking to ABC's affiliate station WJXX-TV, the father revealed that he felt racially profiled, stating that on the same game, another father was asked to leave too, but the cops weren’t called. The man, of course, was white.


The man got emotional when asked about his son’s reaction, and said:

“I'm working hard every day. Do everything right. Love everybody. And my son, he's like, 'Hey, I just don't understand it.' I don't understand it. Something has to be done. What can be done? I don't know, but it's just too much."

On a statement released to the news station, Gary Easom, president of the Ponte Vedra Athletic Association, said the marshal’s actions were taken out of context and stood by her decision to call the deputies, stating that “our team acted appropriately to protect the children, consistent with our organizational mission.”



On a similar note, a black young man was harassed and followed for almost an hour by a white woman because he was babysitting his friend’s two white kids.


The lady approached them at a Walmart parking lot asking if the kids were ok. She then asked the guy, Corey Lewis, to speak with the little girl to see if she really knew the man. When that didn’t work, she called 911 saying she had a “funny feeling” about a black man with two white kids on the back seat of his car.

Not enough with that, she followed Lewis all the way to his home, where a police officer arrived at her request.


Lewis explained the situation to the officer, who asked the kids to step out of the car anyway and asked several times if they were really ok. He even called the kids’ mom to corroborate Lewis’ story.

The children’s mother, Dana Mango, recalled asking the officer, “Are you telling me that because a woman saw a young African-American male with two white kids that they were pulled over by the police?” The cop reportedly responded, “Yes, ma’am. I’m sorry, that appears to be what happened.”
