Smh!! This is incredibly sad and honestly it's hard to understand why in 2018 people of color are still constantly being harassed for doing everyday activities!!
D'Arreion Toles arrived HOME at his the luxury apartment Friday night to a very unpleasant surprise. A woman took it upon herself to physically block him from getting into his apartment building! She actually stood in the doorway and refused to move even though the man told her repeatedly that he lived there. Doesn't stop there!!!! Once Toles finally made his way past her the woman continued to follow him and harass him asking questions like "Where are you going?" "Who are you going to see?" and asking him to display his key to make sure it's the same type they use in the building. AS IF IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE THAT THIS BLACK MAN LIVED THERE!!
In a series of 3 videos posted to Tole's Facebook you can see the entire incident. She even went as far as to follow this poor man all the way to his apartment and stand outside the door as he unlocked his unit and walked inside!!!!
The woman has been identified as HILARY BROOKE MUELLER and has since been fired from her employer, Tribeca-STL. They have also released the following statement on their website:
“The Tribeca-STL family is a minority-owned company that consists of employees and residents from many racial backgrounds. We are proud of this fact and do not and never will stand for racism or racial profiling at our company.”
I honestly have so much respect for this man and how he handled this situation. Not once did he become aggressive (as she was very hostile), raise the tone of his voice, or even call her out of her name!! That takes another level of emotional intelligence and a lot of people would have handled things differently.
As for this woman Hilary Brooke Mueller... I am completely disgusted.
