Race Matters: LeVar Burton Reveals Personal Ritual to Avoid Becoming Police Victim

In a recent conversation on CNN about racial issues in America, actor LeVar Burton explained his ritual to prevent being shot by police when he gets pulled over.

According to Burton every time he is stopped by police, to avoid a potentially deadly confrontation he removes his hat and sunglasses, rolls down his window, and puts out his hands to show he is not armed.

“I do that because I live in America,” Burton added. Burton goes to say that he advises his 33-year-old son to do the same thing.

No solutions to police brutality or racial profiling were offered in the discussion.
