A black man in Tennessee said he was checking on a house he had recently purchased when a white woman in the neighborhood got angry and called the cops because she thought he was breaking and entering.
Michael Hayes, a real estate investor, posted a video on YouTube of a woman harassing him and threatening him because she didn't want him in the neighborhood.
'The neighbor ran outside as I was removing the board from the door of the vacant house. She yelled at me asked me what the f*** was I doing?' he wrote at the beginning of the video.
'I very calmly explained to her that I have a contract on the house and was there to do my inspection. I showed her my business sign that I place in the yards of vacant properties so people will no (sic) why I am there.' Hayes said the woman continued to scream at him, and then called the police.
When officers finally arrive, Hayes explains to them what happened. The woman gets angrier when she realizes the officers are not going to arrest Hayes.
'Just go in there and do what you gotta do and hurry up. Hurry up!' she yells at Hayes. 'Hurry up, do it and get out.'
The lady then gets into an argument with one of the officers, who threatens to arrest her.
The neighbor, Tiffany Albert said Hayes made her look like a racist on the video. "I'm Spanish,” Albert said. “My boyfriend is black. It's nothing racist about it."
