Police in Atlanta are investigating Filmmaker Tyler Perry’s claim of being racially profiled.

Coming on the heels of the tragic death of unarmed teen Trayvon Martin, Perry shared with his Facebook fans the story of how he was ‘profiled’ by police while driving near his studio.   He says he followed all the instructions from the officers remembering what his Mother told him:

My mother would always say to me, “if you get stopped by the police, especially if they are white policemen, you say ‘yes sir’ and ‘no sir’, and if they want to take you in, you go with them. Don’t resist, you hear me? Don’t make any quick moves, don’t run, you just go.

Perry acknowledged that the situation could have easily ended all wrong.
