Wisconsin Man Calls Cops On Black Congressional Candidate For Knocking On Doors

The first black state assemblywoman already has her work cut out for her. She needs to figure out how to get constituents to stop calling the police on black people for simply being black.


Shelia Stubbs was out campaigning in Wisconsin's 77th District when a man called the police to report a "suspicious vehicle" with passengers he believed were "waiting to buy drugs". In actuality, Stubbs was going door to door to talk to neighbors about voting while her elderly mother and eight-year-old daughter waited in the car.

Stubs told CBS News:

I felt humiliated. I felt outraged, I felt angry. I felt embarrassed.

Twitter felt the outrage.









Maybe it will take money to solve this issue.

Oh, and by the way, she won.

Don't forget to vote.
