Can you say “Free Bed Bugs For Life?” I’ve stayed at a Doubletree. The continental breakfast sucks balls and the remote smelled like barf.

Tonight I was racially profiled and discriminated against for taking a phone call in the lobby of my hotel room at the @doubletreepdx @doubletree. The security guard “Earl” decided that he would call the police on me, the exact reason is still unclear to me. He said that I was a safety threat to the other guests and that I was trespassing and said that I was a disturbance because I took a personal phone call from my mom in a more remote area of the lobby. The manager who actually called the cops, “Luis” actually asked me AFTER he called the cops, what happened? They already had in their minds that they didn’t want me there so I waited for the cops to show up and when they did, I explained my side of the story and they didn’t want to hear it. They asked me if I had personal items in my room (which of course I did) and asked me to go retrieve them. They told me that since the hotel requested me to leave, that if I didn’t I would be considered a trespasser and would be thrown in jail. I complied and cooperated and was not issued a refund for my room. I packed my stuff and went to another hotel. I cannot believe the level of professionalism that this hotel property had with me tonight. It is never ok to discriminate against guests for the color of their skin and to prejudge them based on your own bias against that race. Earl is a disgrace, calls himself a man but calls the Portland Police Dept on a man who was minding his own business in the lobby of his hotel. I had my hotel key in my hand the entire conversation, he knew I was a guest. He wanted to prove a point and did it in the worst way. Not really shocked that this happened but just extremely disappointed. I will be seeking justice. Believe that. @doubletree @doubletreepdx @hiltonhonors #hilton #hiltonhotels #racism #racisminamerica #racismisreal @shaunking
If you’re one of those dumb white people who think the black community needs to chill out, watch this on repeat and know this will never be you.
You can’t relate to any black issue unless you are black. It’s impossible. Sorry.
The Idea we could be a guest at a hotel and arrested or moved because of the color of our skin. Doesn’t compute and nor should it.
Can you imagine getting removed from something because your skin color is a problem?? Getting pulled over because you’re black? Getting searched illegally because you’re black? Getting arrested and beat for a broken tail lite because your black?
No. So you don’t get an opinion that’s alternative to the right one.
America, you are hilarious.
