Racist Blocks Black Doctor From Entering Her Gated Community -- Then Calls the Cops on Her

In a video posted online, a black doctor in Atlanta who attempted to enter the gated community where she has a home was blocked from entering by a man who called the police to have her arrested, reports 11 Alive.

According to Dr. Nnenna Aguocha, she had just come off a night shift and was attempting to pull into the Buckhead Townhome complex where she has lived for eight years when the man blocked her with his SUV in a confrontation that lasted 30 minutes.

In the video you can see the man's white car blocking the only way into the complex, with Aguocha approaching the man and pointing out where she lived as he muttered at her with his window rolled up.

"He got out of the car and threatened to call the police on me because I was trespassing," she said in the video, adding. "This is racial profiling at its finest."

According to the doctor, her antagonist called the police -- as did she, explaining: "He called the police, so I called the police as well."

Aguocha added that man said he didn't believe she lived in the complex and called her a trespasser  -- saying it was an obvious case of racism.

"I absolutely think it was racially motivated," Aguocha explained. "When this altercation was going on, what went through my mind was this guy could do absolutely anything to me. He could shoot me dead on the spot because he was trying to protect the neighborhood and the property and people would make up stories later."

Police state that the man, who was not identified, blocked her because there had been a series of air conditioner thefts in the community - which the homeowners association denied.
