Man blocks black delivery driver in an Oklahoma neighborhood

The Associated Press - May 16, 2020 11:55 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A black delivery driver says he was overcome with emotion while recording himself and a black co-worker being blocked into a gated Oklahoma City neighborhood for more than an hour by a white resident who demanded to know why they were there. Travis Miller, who delivers home appliances and furniture, captured the incident on Monday in a Facebook Live video that has gone viral.

About an hour after both parties said they were calling the police, Miller noted that the man ultimately moved his car because his customer arrived at the scene and confirmed that he had just received a delivery.
