A billboard just went up in Livonia, Michigan, that targets the local police department for allegedly racially profiling the black community. Without proof, it’s impossible to verify the claims the billboard makes, but it went up anyway, to the detriment of the Livonia Police Department.

A crowd-funding organization called Livonia Citizens Caring about Black Lives paid for the electronic billboard that reads:

‘Driving While Black?’

RACIAL PROFILING JUST AHEAD

WELCOME TO LIVONIA

Livonia Police said the accusation is a very serious one and released a statement:

“Livonia Police officers do not target their enforcement actions to individuals based on gender, race, religion, or ethnicity. Racial profiling is a serious allegation and is not tolerated. This billboard sends the exact opposite message of our values at Livonia Police Department and of those in our community.”
