Don Cheadle Opens Up about His Experiences With Police And Says He’s Been Stopped Many Times

The historical genocide drama film ‘Hotel Rwanda’ lead actor, Don Cheadle visited ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ and made statements regarding his past experiences with police, as a black man.

House of Lies’ star told Fallon:

“I think a lot of Black people have the story of how their parents had cautioned them about how to comport themselves when they come into contact with law enforcement and the rules of how to just make sure that you can come home and be safe and what you had to do. So, unfortunately, that was something that was put into our minds very early.”

Following mentioning about the racism he experienced as a kid in his school and neighborhood, Cheadle said regarding the period of adulthood:

“We would get stopped—I mean, I got stopped more times than I can count. Guns put to my head. I always ‘fit the description.’”

He continued by saying that police brutality has been an ‘unwanted’ and ‘inevitable’ part of his life for long years:

“This is something that was happening over and over again. I’ve had good friends that were almost killed by the police for nothing. This is not something that was new to me once all these videos started coming out, it’s things that we knew very well that were happening, they just weren’t being filmed.”
