Mr. Chancellor,
You'll probably never read this but I feel as though it needs to be said. First and foremost, I'm a diehard Seahawks fan and have been for as long as I can remember. And you have always been one of my favorite players. I recently saw you had taken to Twitter portraying an appalling story about having the cops called on you. I have read different articles and all of them seem to agree with you, these two women who called the cops are racist. However, I find myself trying to see the situation from the perspective of the women. If I had been in the same position, what would I have done? I think it's safe to say, I would have called the police and it would have had nothing to do with the color of your skin. If anyone, male or female, is trying to get into a building that is clearly closed and I'm inside, I will be concerned for my own safety. Now, based on the report from the police that I saw, the women reported there were 5 adults. As employees, I would imagine they could get in some serious trouble for letting people into a closed building. Not to mention, they don't know your intentions for trying to get in. If they had let anyone into the building and been attacked, people would be blaming them because they should have known better than to let people in. Now let's flip this, say for argument's sake Mr. Chancellor you have a daughter, and her and her coworker are inside a locked, empty building alone and a group of 5 adults came to the door and wanted your daughter to let them in, what would you tell your daughter to do in that situation? Keep in mind, you have no idea why these 5 people are there or what they want. I would hope that you would be concerned for the safety of your daughter and advise her to keep the door shut. Now, maybe its hard to imagine how you would feel about your daughter, but what about your sister or niece being in that situation? It seems to me, Kam, that this was all a big misunderstanding. I am terrified to think I live in a society where I have to be more concerned about if my actions could be perceived as racism than for my personal safety. I am not saying any of this to be disrespectful, but I was raised to realize there are always at least 2 sides to every story.
God bless and Go Hawks!
