A video posted on YouTube earlier this month shows a black real estate investor in Memphis, Tennessee dealing with local police officers after a neighbor called them on him while he was trying to fix up the next-door house.
As real estate investor Michael Hayes writes, he went to the house, which is in a dilapidated condition, to inspect it. The woman came out of the house and asked him what he was doing. At this point, he showed her the investment contract that he had giving him permission to work on the house, as well as written permission that he received from the house’s owner to be on the property.
However, this didn’t seem to satisfy the woman’s suspicions about him, and she ended up calling the police.
When the police arrived on the scene, Hayes calmly explained the situation to the officers, who were sympathetic to what he was saying. They then asked the woman in the neighboring house to let him do his job.
The woman tells the officers that he can do his job — but then she glares at him and tells him, “Hurry up, do it, and get out!”
The officers inform the woman that he doesn’t have to hurry up on her commands and can take all day to inspect the home if he wants.
Toward the end of the video, Hayes praises the cops for the way they handled the situation.
“They could tell the lady was crazy,” he said.

Lindsey Graham promises Fox viewers a new investigation into Andrew McCabe despite the Justice Dept clearing him
Appearing on the Fox Business channel with host Maria Bartiromo, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) promised viewers he fully intends to use his position as the head of the Senate Judiciary Committee to launch his own investigation into former Deputy Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation Andrew McCabe despite the former law enforcement official already having been cleared by the Justice Department.
Complaining that the controversial Steele dossier was based on " a bunch of bar-talk and hearsay," Graham said he plans to call -- at the very least -- McCabe and former FBI Director James Comey in to be grilled by his committee.
MSNBC guest goes off on Chris Matthews for comparing Sanders to Nazis: ‘He had kin murdered in the Holocaust’
Time magazine editor Anand Giridharadas criticized MSNBC host Chris Matthews over the weekend for his alleged bias against Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
Giridharadas remarks came after Matthews compared Sanders' win in Nevada to a Nazi invasion.
"Last night was a historic win that I think a lot of us are still struggling to understand," Giridharadas explained. "It's historic because we may be seeing that we are paddling through a bend of a river in history here. Something is happening in America right now that actually does not fit our mental models."
‘Kiss Florida goodbye’: Voto Latino head warns Democrats of coming 2020 debacle
Appearing on MSNBC's "AM Joy," Voto Latino CEO María Teresa Kumar said Democrats should not count on taking Florida's 29 electoral votes in the upcoming 2020 presidential election if Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is the at the top of the ticket.
During a fairly contentious panel discussion on the viability of Sanders as a candidate due to self-identifying as a democratic socialist, Kumar claimed that would not play well Florida's Latino community.
"All I can think about when David [Corn] was unpacking it for us, we can all agree is you can kiss Florida goodbye," she explained. "I say that, Floridians -- Latinos that have fled socialism, they have fled and they are in Florida and they have sensibilities that are different from the rest of the Latino community."
