Essence Magazine Writer Britni Danielle write, “The list of things Black people can do without having the police called on them by white folks continues to grow.

In addition to barbecuing while Blackcampaigning while Black, and performing community service while Black, it looks like we can add a new one to the list: babysitting while Black.

Recently, a white woman at a Cobb County, Ga., Walmart called the police after spotting a Black man with two white children. Although the children were not upset, crying, or in danger, the woman confronted the man and asked to speak to the kids because she suspected something was afoul.

The problem? He was a Black man with two white children in his care.

Corey Lewis documented the run-in on Facebook Live, and later told CBS46 the woman called the police after he refused to let her speak to the children after he told her they were okay.” (Source: Essence)
