Golf Course Called Police on Black Lawyer Who Knows Her Way Around Civil Rights Law

One of the African-American women on a golf course, whose co-owner said they were playing too slowly and called the police, is a Pennsylvania lawyer and president of the local NAACP chapter.

Sandra Thompson and her friends were golfing on April 21 at Grandview Golf Club in Dover Township, where they are members, when the co-owner of the golf course alerted police about their pace of play and asked them to leave. The women denied they were golfing too slowly, and they stayed put.

Like the recent incident at a Philadelphia Starbucks where an employee called police about two black men who did not immediately place an order while waiting on a friend, the golfers’ fiasco has spread quickly among national media like The Associated Press, Newsweek and ESPN, and was even featured on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” in a segment about people calling police on others “for being black in public.”
