Jermain with his latest girlfriend stepping out on Thursday night.
Well lookie here folks Jermain Defoe is about to take on ‘the man’.
Via The Daily Mail
England star Jermain Defoe is suing the police, claiming he is the victim of a racist campaign.
The Tottenham Hotspur striker, 26, who was England’s hero in Holland on Wednesday, believes he is unfairly targeted by police when driving his Range Rover.
He was locked up last month after he was pulled over on suspicion of driving while disqualified when he was out in his top of the range car in Harlow, Essex.
He was held overnight until police checked with
Defoe’s lawyer, Nick Freeman, said: ‘He feels particularly aggrieved as he is stopped constantly. He feels like whenever there is a police car behind him he will be pulled over for a check.
‘It does not seem to happen to the white players, just the black ones.’
Mr Freeman, continued: ”I asked Jermain if he feels there is a racist element involved. He said he discussed it with black colleagues and they have similar experiences. He asked why white colleagues didn’t have similar experiences. Every time he is in his Range Rover he gets pulled over and he does not know why.’ Continue Reading…

I can’t work out whether Jermain is naive or just plain dumb!
How long have you been a black Jermain?
You had to discuss the situation with your black/white colleagues to confirm what you should already know, that the reason why the police stop you all the time is because you’re a black man driving an expensive vehicle.
YES JERMAIN IT’S RACISM!!!!!
I apologise if this news has come as some sort of a shock/wake up call for you, because I know how you like to roll.
Anyway I wish Jermain the best of luck with his case against the police.
