Black teen cuffed by cops while white kid walked free speaks out: ‘Treating him like he was superior to me’

On Don Lemon Tonight Wednesday, 14-year-old Kye and his mom Eboné appeared to communicate concerning the fight Kye obtained into at a New Jersey mall on Saturday. Video of the fight between Kye and the older, greater white teen went viral as a result of when officers arrived to break it up, the white child was escorted to a sofa whereas Kye, who’s Black, was tackled and cuffed whereas each officers every had a knee pressed into his again. At one level, the opposite child stood up from the sofa and stood over Kye, trying down at him as he was being cuffed. “I kind of felt like the cops were going along with what the older kid was saying about him being bigger and stronger and superior. I felt like they were agreeing to it,” Kye stated. “I felt like they were treating him like he was superior to me, and agreeing with the fact that he knew he was superior. Or that he thought he was superior.” The viral video understandably has individuals outraged by the actions of the officers. New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy stated he was “deeply disturbed” by it. Eboné believes that what occurred sadly was due to race. “I hate to say this, but if it wasn’t for race, then what is it?” Eboné requested. “What made them tackle my son and not the other kid? What made them be so aggressive with my son and not the other kid? Why is the other kid sitting down looking at my son be humiliated and put into cuffs? It just doesn’t make sense. It makes me angry.”
