‘Insecure’ actor and racial equality activist Kendrick Sampson took to Instagram Tuesday (December 16) to report he was attacked and detained by police in Cartagena, Colombia – and the entire horror was caught on video.
Warning: Video contains content some viewers may find disturbing
Sharing the footage to his social media accounts (seen above), Sampson stated:
“Cartagena is AMAZING but this is the 6th time I was stopped in 5 days. It happens to Black Colombians often. I’m told stopping is policy but what is NOT is they reached down my underwear aggressively, slap my arms 5 times hard, punch me in my jaw and pull his gun on me,” Kendrick posted. “He then cuffed me and dragged me through the streets. I did not resist any legal procedure. Thank u for posting @nataliareyesg & for helping me through this. And to the person who recorded this.”
As the story gained attention around the world, Kendrick took to his IG stories to relay:
The unfortunate incident will likely only add fuel to Sampson’s activism as he’s already made headlines throughout the year for being a noted champion of the Black Lives Matter movement.

White supremacy is global
White supremacy? They’re not even white, you racist fool. Look how BLACK the cop’s hands are.
1. this is how police brutality looks like in South America in general 2. but Colombia is especially problematic due to being the most right-wing country in the continent, activists are slaughtered frequently over there 3. I hope people start paying attention to foreign policy just as much as they domestic because a lot of these horrors are US sponsored. I feel for Kendrick and am glad he is safe
