If this man had 7 tattoos on his face she still could’ve leashed her dog, let alone everything that followed. I share this more b/c we see the narrative “she called the police on a black man” like the man is some faceless, nameless idea, rather than a living breathing person.

And this is the other gentleman in the clip, filming a TV show about birding in Central Park I believe:

Last thing I’ll say is that this is bigger than one racist woman. Every time this happens it’s easy to zoom in on the perpetrator and shame them etc. But the real response from white people needs to be educating other white people to be anti-racist.

A white man carrying a gun, wearing a MAGA hat, screaming about his "rights" is the most terrifying individual to be near tbh. Toss in Confederate flag for bonus scary points. Mr. Cooper should not have to prove anything as he did nothing other than ask a woman to leash her dog.

Such a good point. White men with guns storming state capitals have seen treated better than a black man wanting to protect birds.

Harvard grad. Biomedical editor. Former editor at Marvel Comics. Avid birder. Christian Cooper is not a threat to anyone.

Indeed! Though it doesn't make any difference that he went to Harvard or is an editor. He's a non-threatening, non-criminal human being.

I'd watching a "Birding with Mr. Cooper" show . Just saying.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if Mr. Cooper gets a huge deal out of this and gets to talk about birds all day long?

Christian Cooper is on the board of the NYC Audubon Society - you can donate in his name, if you'd like!
