Now yoga can be added to the list of normal activities black people might engage in that get the cops called on them.
Ezekiel Phillips claims that he was sitting in his car, resting before his yoga class and listening to a Bikram Yoga CD, when a white woman confronted him, telling him that he didn’t belong in the area.
“You’re not supposed to be here. This is a good neighborhood,” he recalled to FOX 11.
“At that moment I’m like, ‘wait hold up’. Have a good day ma’am. Namaste. And I rolled my window up,” he said.
She started taking video, and so did he. Then the woman called Long Beach police.
In the 911 call, obtained by FOX 11, the woman can be heard grousing that the man was unfamiliar.
“I noticed him two houses up from my parents’ house and I’m like, you know and he’s waving to me. I don’t know who he is.“
She added, “I go ‘why are you sitting in your car in our neighborhood? And he goes ‘I’m resting’ and I’m like you weren’t two blocks back’’.”
Phillips decided to stick it out. “I thought about it. ‘If I leave, it’s looking like I’m guilty of whatever she’s talking about.”
Police arrived and Phillips wasn’t charged with anything.
