DISCOVERY BAY, California — A Black family living in Discovery Bay is speaking out after a white neighbor commanded them to “stop acting Black” in their “white neighborhood” while wielding a Taser.
Gerritt Jones and his family have lived in the neighborhood for 12 years and say they’ve never had any issues involving the woman they identify as Adana Dean, who lives across the street.
Surveillance video and cell phone video shows Adana say “You know what? You guys are acting like Black people and you should act like white people.”
She goes on to say in another clip “You’re a Black person in a white neighborhood and you’re acting like one why don’t you act like a white person in a white neighborhood?”
Adana then can be heard on video saying she was raised in Oklahoma City “where there were tons of Black people.”
When she is questioned by Gerritt’s sister Jarielle, Adana replies, “you’re acting like people who aren’t normal.”
