A traveling dance troupe claims they were racially profiled by Texas cops,  who cuffed the trio after suspecting something wrong with a 13-year-old white  girl and two black men sharing the same car, according to a report.

The teen, Landry Thompson, had just stopped at a Houston gas station with  her dance partner, Josiah Kelly, 22, and their instructor, 29-year-old Emmanuel  Hurd, when cops approached about 3 a.m. Sunday, the group told KHOU-TV.

The group — from Tulsa, Okla. — tried to explain that they spent the day  recording a dance video with a local group, Planet Funk Academy, but cops didn’t buy their story.

“They were convinced I was a runaway,” Landry told the news station.

All three were placed in handcuffs and taken into custody. The cops then called the teenager’s home and got her mother, Destiny Thompson, on the phone.

“Are you aware that your daughter is with two black men?” the cop on the line allegedly asked.

But when she told the officer that she knew her daughter was visiting the Lone Star State with the two men, “he called into questioning our parenting,” the mother told the news station.
