Thompson said, yes, Xaiver was his kid, and the officer asked to speak to him outside.
The officer told him they "got a call that something was 'off' and 'the father doesn’t look like the son.'" That's when Thompson realized what was going on.
Thompson, who is part Jamaican, has albinism, as does his Indian wife. Their son does not have albinism and has darker skin than his parents.
The officers were both apologetic, said Thompson, saying they had to investigate because of the call but knew nothing was amiss. They ended up driving father and son home — even turning on the siren for Xavier — and commiserating over how anyone in 2016, in a city like Toronto, could call in such a complaint.
