    So you made an erratic traffic maneuver, you were pulled over, you had tinted windows and made sudden movements in front of police officers…and then they let you go because you were famous? You really know how to relate to the common man. Good thing you put your two cents in about the terrible killing of a young man and made it about how you are allowed to drive poorly.

      Wow (tbone) I think you REALLY missed the point that Mr. Perry was trying to make. The fact is - a large black man driving in an expensive car made a minor traffic violation (I'm sure YOU'VE NEVER done that because YOU are SO self-righteous). His anonymity to the white officers made him just as vulnerable to ill treatment, unjust harassment, and racial profiling as the Trayvon Martins of the world. As for him being released and apologized to: #1 He was blessed that SOMEONE came along to diffuse the situation (regardless of WHO he was). Him reaching for his key could have EASILY resulted in us losing another member of our African American celebrity with the trigger-happy generation of law enforcement that shoot first and ask questions later (or rather make up stories later). #2 If the officers had been professional enough to allow him to even state his case (whatever happened to 'license and registration' you know READING IS FUNDAMENTAL ) perhaps they could have learned his identity the RIGHT way and the notion that someone might have been following him would not have seemed so absurd to them. #3 Why are YOU HERE ANYWAY? If you want to be cynical and degrading to Mr. Perry it begs the question to be answered - perhaps you should spend your bitter and hateful elsewhere.

      Tbone, You sound like an idiot. Mr. Perry has experienced what alot of black men have experienced. He was not stopped for driving erractically, he was stopped because he was a black man driving a car someone (a white police officer) thought someone like him shouldnt be driving. Thats why he was stopped. Thank God he made it out alive. Which shows even with a Black man in the (white) House we still live in a country where people are judged by the color of their skin and not by the content of the character.

      Tyler, I am so very sorry that this has happened to you, and I agree wholeheartedly that racial profiling should be treated as a hate crime. There is no reason that this type of thing should keep happening ONLY to our Black males and having others think that we are being overly sensitive and are throwing the race card out as if it is an excuse for something we did wrong. Tyler, one would have to be a moron living under a rock in a foreign country, to not know who you are. I would not be surprised if they weren't monitoring your studio constantly, just for the opportunity to make an example of " an uppity Negro", meaning that you can get it just like the rest of them. I, like you, know that there are plenty of good officers in Atlanta and elsewhere, but when situations like this keep happening, it makes you wonder where they are. A Black officer should not have had to come to the scene to tell them who you are, because first of all you are a human being, that just happens to be a celebrity. I think if all police officers would vow to treat each and every citizen, no matter what race or color, with dignity and respect, and consider how they would treat a beloved family member in a similar situation, this world would be completely different. Not every Black person is a criminal, just like not every white person is a saint The hatred and unjust treatment is just overwhelming to me, and I just want it to stop!

      Bobbi Kristina did n awesome job last night. Funny thing is I was just flipping through the channels andI saw her. It was also my first time seeing For Better or Worse! Excellent all the way around. Ms. Bobbi did an awesome job and clearly she already has the skills needed to make it. Her family should be very proud of her.
