Jim Jones

White Cops Harassed Me

... Because I'm Black

4/22/2013 3:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0422-jim-jones-frisked-searched-tmzJim Jones claims he was the victim of racial profiling at Newark Airport last week -- when he was pulled over by 4 white cops, who ordered him out of the car while they searched the vehicle for drugs ... and TMZ has the pic.

A rep for the "We Fly High" rapper tells us ... Jones was at the airport Friday, waiting to pick up a friend (who asks Jim Jones to pick them up from the airport?) when he was approached by a police officer who told Jim he smelled weed coming from Jones' car.

You can see in the pic ... four cops surrounded Jones while he was ordered out of the car and told to place his hands on the trunk. The cops searched both Jim's person and his car.

Jim's rep tells us ... cops didn't find a single piece of the green stuff -- but still issued Jim a citation for driving without a license.

Jim's rep says the rapper is furious over the incident -- explaining, "He was searched for nothing more than racial profiling."

A rep for the NY/NJ Port Authority tells us ... they were unaware of the situation and are currently looking into it.

Harassed you because you're an ******* acting like a ****head. Stop acting like blacks always are innocent. Many of you are total jerks and then wonder why people hate you.

If it was a black cop pulling him over,
could he use the "race card'?
If he had a license and didn't have a car that was reeking of weed would he still use the race card?
It's New Jersey, the worse state I ever drove in and get pulled over for no reason. He should be use to it by now.

Oh please. Cry me a river. I think if they're profiled, it's because they're a$$ h a t s. And why do so many of these cry babies think they should be able to drive without a license?? Good job, officers.

Sincere    

I love how people comment about being racially profiled but will never understand the feeling. It isn't justified to be pulled over just because you drive a luxury vehicle. For those who aren't familiar with Jersey, there is currently a multi million dollar lawsuit against State Troopers for racially profiling people of color. The good old boys club is large almost the boys in blue. State will be paying $100 mil plus in settlements after the dust settles.
