  • White Woman Calls Cops On Black AirBnb Users For Not 'Waving' Back

"As you can see three of us were Black".

She added that the reason why the neighbour called the police was because the trio didn't wave at her.

The caucasity continues.... this time it's an incident involving three black filmmakers who were staying in an Airbnb home rental in Rialto, Calif. Last week, two Native American brothers were pulled from a Colorado State University tour after a parent told a 911 dispatcher that their behavior was "odd" and that their dark clothing had "weird symbolism or wording on it".

The three girls also threatened to sue the Rialto Police Department.

The Rialto police, however, provided a different version of the events. The racist incidents led to an offshoot of short-term rental apps that host homes welcoming of Black guests and a commitment from Airbnb to end discrimination on the service. But both recorded the encounter.

"I'm still trying to fully digest the what, why and how of this", Prendergast, wrote on social media.

The police bodycam footage captured the neighbour who called, saying: "They had luggage in their hands and they weren't really looking at me".

Olafimihan wrote on Instagram that "over 700 people that look just like me did not walk away alive from a situation like this past year".

Osuna was placed on administrative leave in accordance with the joint MLB and MLB Players Association's Domestic Violence Policy. While Toronto police is keeping the identity of the victim private, TMZ reports the woman is in a relationship with Osuna.


The police told Fyffe-Marshall and her friends to put their hands in the air, and then informed them a helicopter was tracking them.

Rialto Police Lt. Dean Hardin told CNN an elderly white woman called the police saying she did not recognize the women as being her neighbors. The trio began packing their luggage into their vehicle and preparing to leave, but to the neighbor watching on, the three black women looked like thieves attempting a getaway with stolen property.

While the Facebook post and an accompanying video showing their encounter with police has drawn outrage online, city officials have said the officers were justified in their response. Why?' she wrote alongside the footage. The group had their cell phones in hand and tried to explain to police who they were.

"It has taken me nearly a full week to fully digest the gravity of the situation we were put in due to the unwarranted fear continually spread by the media", he said in an Instagram post.

Police said they would not comment further because the department had been served with notification of pending legal action on behalf of Prendergast, Olafimihan and Fyffe-Marshall.

Fyffe-Marshall is captured on the body cam commending officers at one point. The neighbour told Rodriguez that when she approached the group, they behaved strangely. "If the kids had simply smiled at (my neighbor) and waved back and acknowledged her and said, "We're just Airbnb guests checking out, ' none of this would have ever happened", she said". 'Our officers handled the situation with professionalism, dignity and respect'. We thought it was a good outcome for everyone involved. "We are also reaching out to our partners at the NAACP, National Action Network, Color Of Change, and others to discuss this matter and ensure we are doing all we can to protect our community when they travel".

"The four of us packed our bags, locked up the house and left", she wrote. "No force was used". The encounter lasted just 22 minutes as officers sorted out and confirmed that the renters had been guests at the home.
