L.A. white woman tries repeatedly to get arrested, but fails every time BY Deborah Hastings NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Saturday, July 4, 2015, 4:45 PM Jessie Kahnweiler via YouTube Offering to sell prescription drugs to California Highway Patrol officers still didn’t get comedian Jessie Kahnweiler arrested in Los Angeles. She took her clothes off, and that didn't work. She went snorkeling in a public fountain, and that didn't work. She pawed the police chief and that didn't work, either. In the end, Los Angeles comedian Jessie Kahnweiler just couldn't get herself arrested in the country's second-largest city. To test whether white people are treated better than blacks by police, Kahnweiler took to the streets with a series of skits designed to get herself locked up. Nothing worked. In light of the recent shootings by cops of unarmed black men, the entertainer said "I found myself, as a white Jewy liberal, pretending like all the horrific stuff that's happening is none of my business. But hating racism on Facebook isn't enough. It's not an excuse to sit on my ass," she recently told BuzzFeed.

So microphone in hand, and a video camera at the ready, she took to the streets to test her "white privilege." She walked up to California Highway Patrol cops and offered to sell them prescription drugs. The officers told her that constituted selling drugs, but did nothing else. She ripped off her shirt in Chinatown and did a cartwheel on the sidewalk. Nothing happened then, either. Then she lurched down a public street as if she were drunk, while carrying a bottle of beer. Ditto response. Wearing goggles and a snorkel, she lounged in a park fountain, where a sign said "no swimming or playing." No one made her get out. She threw herself at Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck during a parade, and was gently pulled back by sheriff's deputies. "I understand that I will NEVER EVER EVER understand what it's like to be black in America, but this video is my attempt to challenge my own privilege," she said.
