North Carolina Man Calls Cops On Black Woman For Using Her Neighborhood Pool

By Vanessa Nix Anthony

#IDAdam is the latest in a cavalcade of white self-deputized busybodies targeting POC in public spaces.

Police were called to a Winston-Salem North Carolina neighborhood on Wednesday after a white man (Adam Bloom) confronted Jasmine Edwards, a black woman, about whether or not she had a right to be at the Glenridge community's private pool, prompting allegations of racial profiling. 

The incident response with police, which was caught on video and posted on Facebook by Edwards, sparked a vibrant backlash on social media with folks dubbing Bloom #IDAdam, #PoolPatrolPaul, and #PoolPatrolPeter. 

Racial profiling at its worst!
