Lasizwe describes how he was subject to racial profiling in Spain

In his memoir, Lasizwe Dambuza describes being racially profiled in Spain.

The South African celebrity recently visited Spain, and as can be seen in the pictures and videos that have been released, he had a great time. However, some police officers tried to ruin his good times by acting in a discriminatory manner.

“So I got racially profiled. The police in Spain stopped me inside the airport and asked for my passport then they told me to wear my mask (bare in mind it’s not mandatory in Spain to wear masks anymore except for when you are in a public transport)”

“They told me if they catch me without a mask at the airport they were going to arrest me or fine me when I looked around at the airport NO ONE WAS WEARING MASKS (also bare in mind it’s just white people here. Black people are a 1:1000 scale here) after the security check point.”

“I said fvck it I removed my mask and made friends to just move around with them… I felt like they targeted me because I was alone, young and black. This was a very wild experience still trying to process it.”
