I was stopped by Colombian police on the street today because I looked like a delinquent and was asked to show my ID. As they ogled my ID, I removed my sunnies from below my hoodie so they could match my eyes.
Most people would feel bitter about being stopped based on their appearance, but I wasn’t. On the contrary, it’s the only thing that has kept me safe on the streets after all these years and even better still, it’s reassuring the police can spot a hoodlum when they see one.
