amazing i had never heard of him.

It's easy to see why African civilization sucks when you see how utterly clueless black people are when it comes to dealing with authorities or following rules.

Perry's full account is on his Facebook page:

Even by his own admission, he never answered the cops' question about why he thought he might be followed, and instead said "“I think you guys need to just write the ticket and do whatever you need to do.”

Perry keeps using the term "badgered" when talking about the cops asking him legitimate questions that he refused to ask. As a white guy I've been pulled over many times and had the cops ask "where ya headed?" - you just STFU and ask the question and everything is fine if you have nothing to hide.

There's a black witness who talked to TMZ and stated that Tyler Perry annoyed the cops by not rolling down his window fast enough:

Apparently Perry thinks he deserves special treatment and deference for being a quasi-celebrity.

His real complaint seems to be that the white officers were racist because they didnt recognize him.

Tinted windows are illegal in New Hampshire. There is very low tolerance for tinted windows. They don't care if you bought them from out of state.

I should have added that ostensibly they were banned for safety reasons (especially during the long dark winter), but I think they have the added benefit of preventing some traffic stop shenannigans.

I wonder if he was dressed as Madea. Hallelujer, praise da Lort!

From what I understand Perry's "profiling" claim stems from the way the cops treated him during the stop, not the stop itsself.

Black people really do feel that being subject to any questioning, suspicious glances (really, being subject to any contact whatsoever with non-blacks that is not on their terms) is a violation of their rights.

Perry is just another example of the black fantasy that whites get all the perks and breaks and live an easy life because the elite whites give us special favorable treatment. Remember the "Obama gonna pay my mortgage" woman? They really believe that stuff.

I've met Tyler Perry before after one of his plays. He was beyond rude and his sense of entitlement is out of this world!!! I vowed since then never to put one dime of my money towards anything his name is attached to. It's amazing when black people are called out on their behavior or even confronted with anything, they pull out the convenient race card.

@ Jamie

Lots of black celebrities are like that. Pro-athletes used to be very approachable but since blacks took over sports decorum towards fans has declined. Black celebs also sympathize with the "struggle" remember that when you choose to become a fan.

Pretty stupid of the cops to not know who tyler Perry is. And if they did know, pretty racist of them to give him a hard time. If it were a white celeb they'd be asking for autographs.

Another stupid black playing race card. Nothing new.

"you just STFU and ask the question and everything is fine if you have nothing to hide."

Don't you mean "answer" the question?

A few years ago I was late for my class (I was the teacher). I was driving down Mission Street in San Francisco in the middle lane. I realized my mistake. I was in the wrong lane for a right turn. I just went for it.

As I made this right turn from the wrong lane I suddenly was startled and my foot went down on the gas and I nearly ran down a pedestrian.

A fire department hook and ladder was chasing me with all its sirens and lights going. I though it must be responding to a fire, I drove out of the way as fast as possible to let him bye. I turned up an alley but to my amazement the damn noisy fire truck followed me. I was in a high speed chase with a fire truck!

I stopped and went back to see what was the problem. Out of the cab came the smallest fireman I've ever seen. He was screaming and hysterical. But I sensed that he had always wanted to be a cop but had been to small to qualify. Here at last was his opportunity to speed through traffic with the lights and siren blazing and run down the miscreants.

My advive to Mr. Perry is that there are many reasons why cops pull over drivers other than race.

"Tinted windows are illegal in New Hampshire. There is very low tolerance for tinted windows. They don't care if you bought them from out of state."

Seriously? In Texas tinted windows are nearly universal, and I've taken mine as far away as Connecticut.

But I live in a Prole state. I was in DC (VA), riding with a college friend who works for DOE. He pulled him over and searched his car, because of his Texas A&M sticker (with Maryland plates), because "you Texans sure sure like your guns."
