I’ve lived in Denver my entire life, I’ve wandered up and down Broadway for years now. Even with all the racial shootings, and police brutality stories I’ve felt pretty safe in my hometown until this weekend. I want to share what happened to me because I don’t want crimes like these to go unnoticed. Hopefully by me sharing this, and friends sharing this post it will make some sort of an impact in our community. On Friday night around 2am, two friends and I were sitting on the curb when two white men came up to us and asked us “Tell me something about black people?” That alone was confusing and annoying. We get up and tell them to get out of our faces and to leave us alone, they called us niggers, and that’s the last thing I remember before getting up with a handful of blood spewing from my bottom lip. We called the police and they came with the ambulance. The ambulance took me to the ER where I got three stitches inside my lip. The police didn’t do a report at the scene of the crime because we had “too much attitude”. It wasn’t until today that I got to speak to an officer about what happened and now detectives are looking at street cameras for footage. So as of now, no, he is not in jail. But I am praying we get some sort of footage with their faces on it. This was the scariest thing to ever happen to me and it still feels very surreal to me. I’m saddened and outraged by this but I’m hoping something good can come from this.
