I saw this a few months ago and was absolutely flabbergasted. I shouldn't be, because, hey, I lived in Baltimore, basically a black and white city, and this kind of stuff really did happen. But to see it plain as day, no ambiguity about it? Shocking.

What scared me was

the fact that it was OKAY for a white man to be stealing that bike. People asked him if it was his and he told them no - but no one stopped him. And the girl? A pretty girl? They HELPED her. For me, this video demonstrated a deeper problem; one hidden within racial profiling. I knew the black kid would be questioned immediately - but that the white MAN would be ALLOWED to steal the bike?

I don't even know if this is a problem that can be fixed - ever.
