For any black person in the United States, an encounter with the police can be a nerve-wracking experience. New York Times bestselling author Tomi Adeyemi felt the truth of this sentiment when four white police officers showed up at her house. 

The 25-year-old author of the novel Children of Blood and Bone took to Twitter to detail what happened when police showed up at her home asking to speak with someone inside on Thursday, July 12. She followed their request by asking if they had a warrant they issued threats of them coming back and ripping her door off the hinges.

Following the realization that officers just wanted to speak with someone about a possible contact for an investigation, Adeyemi asked why the officer threatened her. Instead of apologizing, the officer said he didn't attempt to intimidate her. She began recording the encounter.

While Adeyemi tried to get the officers to understand her point of view, the officer who threatened her instead offered his ideology as a rebuttal. 

Adeyemi reassured us that she's all good, but, as one can imagine, the experience is likely to have a lasting effect. Unfortunately, this is America, and her story is one of many.
