Original Message A shocking new video illustrates how race and color continue to play a major role in how someone is perceived in American society.
The video, shot in Los Angeles, compares the general publicís reaction to first a white male, then a black male, attempting to break into a car
He recently took to the streets of L.A. along with his friend Quentin Brunson and filmed the predictable - yet depressing - results.

First Roberts, who is white, attempts to break into the car with a wire hanger. Despite the carís alarm blaring, no one pays him any attention and at one point the police even drive past without stopping to confront him.
After 30 minutes, Roberts gives up and then we see the radically different reaction when Brunson, who is black, takes up the challenge.

Instantly passers-by are suspicious and a group of men standing nearby start to take pictures on a phone.
