A black OR state representative says one of her constituents called the police on her for canvassing a neighborhood.
Since November 2016 she has represented House District 51, which includes east Portland, Gresham, North Clackamas, Damascus, Boring, and Happy Valley.
In recent months, black people have found themselves the subjects of 911 calls over mundane and innocuous activities, like napping. The caller's race is unknown, the Oregonian reports. Bynum didn't say this was a case of racism, but believes some type of bias was at play.
"One Facebook commenter said the incident was "#racepalm unbelievable".
"It was just freaky", Bynumtold local publication, The Oregonian. She said she eventually talked to the woman who reported her and received an apology. The woman, who was not identified, had already left the neighborhood.
"We talked and she did apologize", Bynum wrote.
State representative Janelle Bynum was going door-to-door to meet constituents earlier this week.
But damn if she didn't get the cops called on her in her own district. As CNN notes, someone in OH recently called the police on a 12-year-old boy for mowing the wrong lawn. For an 8-year-old girl in California, it was selling water outside the apartment building where she lives. The cop-caller said she appeared to be casing the neighborhood because she was occasionally using her cellphone. A recording of police turning the men out of the branch went viral, and the company apologised for the incident and introduced training to help staff root out racial bias.
The woman said she'd seen Bynum at seven other homes before deciding to call 911 around 4:50 p.m.
"You know, I stuck out, right, as an African American".
