Daniele Watts & Her BF Have Been Racially Profiled Before? This Story May Shed Light On Why She Reacted The Way She Did!

Daniele Watts, known best for her role in Django Unchained, made headlines when she refused to cooperate with a police officer asking for her ID after reports of lewd behavior.

Daniele claims she and her boyfriend Brian Lucas, better known as celebrity chef Cheffy BeLive, were just making out, and that the call was made only because they are an interracial couple.

As such, she thought she was using civil disobedience to protest being profiled.

The police argue that witnesses reported obscene behavior that required them to question the lovers, but that would have been the end of it if not for Daniele’ non-compliance.

Well, according to an Instagram post from Brian from back in May, this isn’t the first time they felt racially profiled.

Brian posted the pic (above) and wrote:

“We just got pulled over for speeding & were actually “profiled” as a bi-racial, queer couple by a rookie Texas State Trooper. It was quite an interesting but growing experience. Will expand on the whole story in the comments of FB post soon or in new post. We turned it into a magical experience & are YES we are ok and spirit even supported us in a RAWKin’ cool way that we couldn’t even plan.”

So was this another in a pattern of assuming racism? Or did this previous incident charge the more recent police encounter with extra racial tension?

We’ll probably never know for sure what happened here, but racial and sexual profiling is clearly deplorable and has to stop.
