A group of Black men in Grand Rapids, Michigan attended a city commission meeting Tuesday night and urged officials to declare a “state of emergency,” MLive.com reports.

The Greater Rapids NAACP told the news outlet that about 100 Black men met the previous night at LifeQuest Ministries and agreed that something must be done to address reports of police bias and to protect their families.

“I hear you loud and clear as you are suggesting we call a state of emergency,” said Third Ward Commissioner Senita Lenear at the two-hour public hearing. “I don’t know whose job it is to call that—but I agree with you that there is a state of emergency. If I had the authority to call a state of emergency I would.”

The men told the commissioners that they want to prevent racial tensions from boiling over.

In April, a study found that Grand Rapids police are two times more likely to stop Black drivers, and cops searched Black drivers at a higher rate than non-Black drivers.

One month earlier, Grand Rapids police held five innocent Black boys at gunpoint and searched them for weapons. A video shows one of the boys crying as he lay on the ground, the outlet reported.

  1. I am watching live PD right now and they pulled over two black idiots that had an infant sitting in the front seat on the lap of one of these geniuses and they are both drinking and the car smells like weed, it’s 1:00 in the morning. One little fender bender and that baby is killed by the airbag. They get them both out of the car and they are just sitting there looking around like a couple of dummies, which they no doubt are.

  2. You stupid brainless low IQ black idiots are so pathetic. “Evil” huh, if there was an evil group of people, it would be you blacks and I think everyone else would agree with that. You are already the stupidest.

  3. This can be stop if only black people get behind Louise Farrakhan, this man is fearless, speak the truth and power to his people if only they will listen, as long as black american continue the path they are on this mess will continue to happen, it will stop if they grow some balls like farrakhan said stand with him the white man will stand down because he will be faced with power that he has never seen before

    • Lol, black people! You dummies can barely get out of bed each day and just get by let alone defeating the white man in your stupid fictious war. Blacks are just stupid stupid people, plain and simple.
