    MC Hammer is claiming he was a victim of racial profiling after he was arrested for allegedly obstructing and resisting an officer in Northern California.
    The 50-year-old rapper took to Twitter to discuss the situation shortly after his release from the Santa Rita Jail in Dublin on Saturday.
    "Chubby elvis looking dude was tapping on my car window, I rolled down the window and he said 'Are you on parole or probation?'" tweeted Hammer (real name, Stanley Kirk Burrell). "While I was handing him my ID he reached in my car and tried to pull me out the car but forgot he was on a steady donut diet," he continued.
    According to Fox News, Dublin police Lt. Herb Walters told the Oakland Tribune that Hammer was arrested Thursday for investigation of obstructing an officer in the performance of their duties and resisting an officer.
    Still, Hammer stands by his version of the arrest, adding on Twitter, "I will now answer his question, contrary to his personal beliefs, all people of color are not on parole or probation fat boy!!!"

    Question:
    just not getting better it's sad how they see blacks in such neg light
    have we done this to ourselves or this just how we are seen ????

    When I first saw this earlier, I paused. According to the report, the car Hammer was in had expired licenses, I believe; and the registration was faulty. These are risky circumstances for anyone, especially a black man to be in. But, the rent-a-cop was out of line, completely...lol. Bet he'll think twice next time :rofl:
