Let’s not kid ourselves. These recent acts that are being caught on camera of white people calling the police or generally harassing people of color have always happened. It’s just that everybody has access to a video camera in an instant and social media.
God Almighty these people have nothing better to do than harass young Black entrepreneurial kids?
•Black child is selling candy
•Random old woman comes demanding to see a business license?????

I love the man who isn’t having anything of this pedantic racist’s shit and buys all of the candy.
And then we have these asshats:
Another day, another racist
Woman wears a Puerto Rico shirt
A man confronts her for wearing it, repeatedly approaches her within a few feet, & questions her citizenship
She pleads for a nearby police officer to keep the man back from her, he ignores her pic.twitter.com/9C66KIjRWc

When I first started watching the video I was so angry at the racist who is attacking an American citizen for wearing a Puerto Rican flag. (Would he be upset with someone wearing a Texas flag?) But then my anger was redirected to the cop who did absolutely nothing in helping the woman who was begging for his assistance. He even turns his back at one point.
