Freddie Gray’s death and the protests that followed drew the line between police and Black and brown civilians deeper in the sand. Those feelings of angst resonated throughout the country, as shown in this footage of actor Chad L. Coleman reacting angrily to racist comments said by a New York City train passenger.
Admittedly frustrated by the happenings in Baltimore, Coleman said he overheard a white man say, “No, we don’t know that ni**er,” on the 4 train, after deliberating with a friend about how they recognized him.
The actor says that he wasn’t drunk, if that’s what you were thinking. Peep the footage below.
