A video of a young African American man talking candidly and honestly about a recent traffic stop in Lexington County is now reaching a larger audience due to social media in the wake of the shooting of an unarmed man in North Charleston. 

Will Stack, a service member with the Army National Guard, says in the video he was pulled over by a Lexington police officer for “improper use of the median.”

According to Stack, he was pulling out of the Lexington County Courthouse in an attempt to make a left turn. Stack said he noticed the lane in front of him was full and the median was not, so he drove the car through the median to get to the left turn lane. 

Seconds later, Stack says he was pulled over by the police officer, who immediately asked to see his license, registration, and proof of insurance. 

“Now, I will say that why he was here with me, I made sure my hands were on the steering wheel, I made sure to speak very politely as I always do. I did what he told me to do. I handed him the information and I sat here and waited and turned my music down,” Stack said.

Stack says the officer returns a short time later and explains the proper use of a median. Stack admits he made a poor choice.

“I was in the wrong, I didn’t realize it,” Stack said. “I just did it out of habit.” 

Stack received a warning from the officer and both went on their respective ways. Minutes later, Stack pulled out his smartphone and began to talk.

“The point of this is to say that I am an African American male, this gentleman was Caucasian. There were no problems. He did his job, I did what I was supposed to do, and that was it.” 

Stack shot the video with full knowledge of what happened in the fatal shooting of 50-year-old Walter Scott. He said he had first seen the video and found parts of it alarming, but wanted to keep an open mind about what happened. 

Stack said it wasn’t a good idea for Scott to run, but he also had concerns about the use of force by 33-year-old North Charleston police officer Michael Slager. 

But Stack aimed make a point in the 2-minute clip which was posted to Facebook on Wednesday and has already been shared thousands of times. In the clip, Stack explains from his own perspective as an African American male that he feels like others need to understand that the use of labels is hurting society. 

“The world really needs to stop putting labels on people and things and see them as who they are: people doing jobs, doing things. Ignorance has no color. God doesn’t see color,” Stack said. “Why should we?”

It’s possible for African-Americans and police officers to get along, Stack said.

“We don’t know what all cops do,” Stack said. “We don’t know what all Caucasian people do. The only thing we know is what’s highlighted and put in the media which unfortunately nine times out of ten are the negative things. So I just wanted to bring something positive to social media, something positive to the world so that people know hey, there are good cops out there. There are intelligent African-Americans out there. It exists.”

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Slow down a minute. Let me get this straight. The cop pulled this kid over and he actually DID what the police officer asked him to do? Ummmm, why? Didn’t he get the memo? He’s supposed to run or at least yell at the cop for profiling him. Doesn’t he read Old Balls’ and Clive’s hot takes? Are you telling me that if you actually speak to the police in a respectful tone and treat them like human beings, that they will then in turn treat YOU with respect??? Don’t tell Joyce McNickles!! She’ll probably call this kid a racist because he’s interfering with her profit margins!!

Did you hear him at the end there too? He said “

God doesn’t see color. Why should we?”

Oh snap!! Someone better call up Lisa Dyer and let her know that God is now added to the official list of people who are racist. Cultural Competency 101. Better call the Justice Department on God. It sounds like the big guy in the sky needs to sit down for an hour long seminar with Keesha LaTulippe.

Seriously though, how do I go about giving William Stack a hug? Does he have a GoFundMe page? Can I nominate him for President?

Ya see that everyone? There is hope for society. Now THIS is the kind of story we would like to publish more blogs about. An articulate, intelligent, fair-minded, young man of color and a white police officer getting along together in harmony. Ain’t life grand? These are the types of stories that bring us together.

Unfortunately every time I go on the Facebook page for groups like “Communities United Collective” (which I’m pretty sure is the same exact thing as the circlejerk) and all I see is stuff like this:

How can you call yourself the “Communities United Collective” while constantly trying to divide communities of people? How can you call yourself the “Coming Together Collective” while constantly trying to pull people apart? Why so negative? Why are we searching the Internet for stories that inflame and divide the community?

Seriously though, this kid just articulated everything that every rational human being has been saying since the beginning of this all. Obey the laws, be polite, and in turn you will be treated with respect. But when you do this whole “us against the world” thing that the Circlejerk preaches, you get division instead of unity.

And naturally this kid is taking a ton of shit from people who have called him Uncle Tom and other derogatory names. Here are some comments from his Facebook page:

LOL. Robert Snow. Might be the whitest white guy name in the history of white guys. This guy right here:

10417819_756138641076284_3323190823082782158_n

has no problem whatsoever telling a black man how he is supposed to feel about racism. This is Sonya Conner’s long last brother.  He knows ALL about racial profiling, because he read it about it on Facebook one time. And there is NOTHING at all racist about a white guy telling a black man how he should feel about an encounter with the police.

Ya see that right there? That’s what is standing in the way of progress. That’s what is standing in the way of peace and harmony. Nicole Bethel doesn’t like the fact that Will Stack had a positive encounter with the police because it fucks up her whole anti-cop agenda. I almost don’t even blame her though. Based on her writing it’s clear she’s barely a functioning adult. She’ll basically believe whatever she’s told. That’s why people like Joyce McNickles, Gordon Davis, and Sonya Conner are a million times more culpable. These are people with PhD’s who should know better. But unfortunately they’ve chosen to make careers out of perpetuating racism. No racism, no money. No peace, no problem.

It’s sad really. But nothing is as insulting as shit like this:

Screen Shot 2015-04-10 at 11.11.59 PM

He’s calling him an Uncle Tom here by making an illusion to Samuel L. Jackson’s house slave character in Django Unchained. That’s what you get when you speak honestly about your experiences with the police.

Well hopefully Will Stack keeps doing his thing and keeps spreading that positive message. It’s an uphill battle because the forces of evil out there want to create a race war between people of color and the police. I’m glad to see that not everyone is falling for it.

    It is wrong and foolish to run from the police. I have never been arrested but I tense up when white police are in my vicinity. I am a Black woman and long before many of the posters were born, my Black parents warned me to keep my hands in view if I was ever stopped for speeding. I am not a criminal. I am articulate, cultured, well-educated, ( My Dad worked two jobs to send me to Ohio State University), I make an above average salary. I have been followed in department stores, ignored when attempting to get assistance while shopping in upscale clothing stores and stared at when eating at certain restaurants (yes, white people, I can hold a fork). I was four-years-old when a white MAN called me a N!&&eR. I am labeled a criminal just by being my fabulous beautiful, Black self. I like translucent folk just as much as they like and respect me. You have been schooled and summarily dismissed.

    Hate to tell you this Will, but you must be the youngest Uncle Tom in America. We are ashamed of you. If anybody runs across you they should slap the shit out of you. I am in Columbia South Carolina and I don’t think this is your birth state. You look like you may be related to Tim Scott. Another Tom!

      President Barack Obama and former Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr.’s ineptitudes and racially based fury inciting comments during the Ferguson Missouri tragedy crisis empowered and encouraged criminals of color to rage against police and our government as if they believe it’s ok to do so. This is an act of treason and truly has resulted now with the inmates running the asylum. I’ve never seen such poor leadership with so many innocent law abiding American citizens being victimized. This is a bad showing for America. Real bad.

        Correction: Criminals of all color. This changes the dynamic of the comment which is what was intended.

      Have you read Uncle Tom’s Cabin? Tom is killed by his slave master in the end because he refused to tell him the location of two runaway slaves. He is remembered as a martyr and a hero by the other slaves. As for Will Stack I don’t think he posted this video to cuddle up to white America. I think he just wants peace. That’s why he serves in the military- he fights so one day he won’t have to.

    In addition, Will Stacks should just ignore the rude and clueless people who call him an “Uncle Tom” for going against the grain compared to other people’s negativity. For one, those who call him that name or make other derogatory comments don’t realize that a lot of the a negative attributes associated with the the person are just distortions from the original story. Second, he has a right to share his experience to prove not all officers are racist and bad.

    It is always amazing how people who post video, stories, pictures of police actions, also ignore one or more of the same showing the positives actions of police and law enforcement. Of course, that goes against the agenda to make it look like “all law enforcement”is bad, corrupt, and racist. As far as racial profiling, I won’t deny it happens, but I’ve also seen many examples of people claiming that racial profiling is widespread, even when admitting they had committed an act which got the person stop and/or arrested in the first place. It also seems whenever there is a story of police interaction with someone who got arrested, including on the Worcester Police Department’s Facebook page, you most times at least get one person who just can’t believe the police were able to figure out someone had a weapon on the suspect and believes the “only” reason the police were able to catch someone was because of profiling.

      And yet there you are with the “D” for a screen name. Coincidence? I think not.

      I’m also gonna guess you’re a black male with a criminal record. Don’t bother trying to deny it- we can already tell.

      If you do not recognize the problem stemming from people that think and write like you than you are a part of it. Get with the program. “Fat drunk and stupid is no way to go through life son.”

    Adolph Hitler Was successful in uniting a nation using these exact tactics. By creating the propaganda he effectively branded himself and rose to prominence. His ideals of racial and religious separation pandered to a low literacy rate and high poverty level, inflaming the masses with anti-Jewish rhetoric. Congratulations Joyce and Clive. You’re acting like Hitler.

    That’s fine; if you’ve ever read the novel, Uncle Tom was an educated man. They just jealous.
