Cops Called on Black Photographer at Preakness Even Though He Had Media Credentials

This isn’t very surprising to me.

I’ve covered multiple sports and have probably over 500 credentials from various things, but there are still times I get a much longer look by security and others in the press area just because I am black.

Granted no one has ever called the cops on me. I don’t recall the cops needing to be called over a credentialing issue, but there is a first time for everything when you are black.

Case in point.

Can flip the pages for a few more details on the story.
