Blacks in America are crying racism especially when it comes on to the treatment being meted out by police.
Now it’s Jamaica’s fast rising deejay Kalado who is making that call and it surrounds an incident in Germany.
Kalado has making performance stops in Germany reportedly told the Jamaica Star that police profiled him and removed him from a train.
“I was on the train as the only black person, then out of nowhere came the police and asked to search me. I was wondering why me as the only black person, then they took me to the station and ran their search and let me go because I was clean,” said the artiste who is known for songs such as Bring Life, Ghetto Youth Want Money and Bad Inna Bed.
The unexpected search he said caused him to miss his ride and he ended up losing his way.
“Because of the time I spent at the station, I ended up missing my connecting train and was unable to find my way around the city. Everybody I asked questions was white and didn’t speak English and they walked past me. I spent a good time searching until I saw a black person and asked if he spoke English and he gave me instructions, and that’s how I got to my show,” he said.
Just in case you might think it was a one-off the deejay said he had another incident sometime later in Germany.
“When I took my seat, a white person came and told me to get up even though the number on my ticket corresponded with the seat. I said I wasn’t going to move and they called the security, I still stood my ground until I was eventually left alone with the assistance of my DJ who is white. He later told me that mi nuh fi feel no way but a because mi black and a suh the thing set. Maybe because it was a first-class seat that was comfortable, they felt it was too good for me,” he said.
Hmmn wonder what other artists have to say about their stint in Germany. Holla at us, we would love to share your stories.
