Wisconsin’s county supervisor, Sheila Stubbs, was mistaken as a drug dealer and had the cops called on her while she was campaigning in a neighborhood.
On Thursday, during an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, Stubbs shared that she was embarrassed and felt degraded by the situation.
“This incident was unacceptable. This incident has been outrageous to me. I was embarrassed. I was humiliated. It tells me that racism still exists and It’s unacceptable. I was racially profiled and stereotyped,” she said.
Stubbs continued, “It was awful because I felt so degraded. I felt humiliated. I felt insulted. I prayed. I cried. I just could not go out to another door. I was scared.”
