An Interracial Couple Gets Arrested In Kenya - and It’s Not for What You Think #8
Play • 36 min

This week on It’s Not All Black & White - The Interracial Podcast (http://www.itsnotall.com)  we talk about Matthew’s brilliant idea to film cops taking bribes and then getting hauled to the police station for questioning and interrogation. 

We were on our way to pay tuition for a young girl whose parents couldn’t afford school fees as part of Ecodunia’s mission to create sustainable community and educate rural girls in Kenya. Our bus driver was pulled over and paid a bribe to corrupt cops. It’s business as usual here in Kenya - but corruption is one of the major roadblocks that keeps Kenya from moving forward. 

Filming punched our tickets to the police station, a meeting with the police chief, and a tense stand-off that ended with a sermon. Turns out being a white man comes with privilege, even in rural Kenya. The police chief didn’t see the upside in keeping us behind bars. 

In the end, it felt good to take a stand for what we believe in.
