Toronto Life feature writer and cover modelDesmond Cole continued his media tour this week with a stop at TVO, where he appeared on The Agenda to discuss his recent memoir about his experiences with racial profiling. At one point, host Steve Paikin asks Cole about what it’s like to be randomly stopped and questioned by a police officer—a type of encounter Cole writes, in his memoir, that his white friends often have trouble believing he doesn’t somehow invite by acting suspicious. “You hear these anecdotes about the guy walking around at 3 a.m. in a dark alleyway,” he tells Paikin. “Don’t you think I’m scared when I’m walking around at night and I get approached by two large people with weapons, and with authority? I am the one who is scared. The idea is that people are scared of me, but it’s actually the reverse.” A video of the interview is embedded above.
