Judd Golden: Racial bias in Boulder

You‘re cleaning your yard with a trash grabber and bucket at 8:30 in the morning. If you‘re young and black, some .

“I live here, here‘s my ID, I‘m just picking up trash.” Not good enough. Call for backup, drawn guns, orders to drop the trash picker. What?

This man was obviously not a threat to himself or others; the video proves it. This would never happen to a middle-age white person on their own property in Boulder.

A 2016 report on racial bias found that a black person in Boulder is about twice as likely to be cited for minor offenses. Apparently nothing has changed.
