    So today I had school for a while because my gcses are coming up so we have extra classes and stuff so I was coming home waiting for the bus. And then a police car approaches and he stops and gets out and asks me some dumb questions. This is in south london by the way i'm black as well and I had my hood up cause it's kind of cold then he stops me and he was like "What's your name" I told him then he was like "Where do you live" I gave him a rough location then I was like I just came back from school and then he was like "Do you have a sister?" I was like no then he walked and drove off.
    This was a weird experience because it's the first time i've been stopped by police and i'm not even a bad kid...

    That's the dumbest part, I have a sister but I said no because I was so nervous and scared. I don't know what's going on in my area but why would you stop me to ask that???

    I think its completely weird to just stop someone ask a bunch of questions and leave. Isn't he supposed to tell you why he's asking the questions in the first place?

    Nope, he didn't tell me why he was asking these questions he just approached me and started asking weird questions.

    Why on earth would that make him racist? People get stopped by the police all the time and for many different reasons.

    And mine didn't have a reason...
    He just saw a kid with a hood on and thought "He's up to no good" when infact I just put my hood on cause it's cold.

    So are you saying that someone is as likely to be randomly stopped by the police regardless of ethnicity?

    I'm saying it wasn't a random stop, more likely the police officer had a reason but did not disclose it.

    Are you sure it was policeman?

    I've seen some recent news about person who claimed to be one, and it also was a warning to all people.
