Double standards: Shocking video captures dramatically different reactions of passers-by when a black man tries to steal a car compared to a whit
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.

It is called situational awareness and reality. If the car alarm is ringing with a white person there it is 99% likely that it is just a goof up. With the black person it is 99% likely they are stealing the car. This is just simple truth, fact and reality.

Reality is in 2011, 64 percent of motor vehicle theft was committed by white people, while around 34 percent was committed by black people.

And your misperception of reality is wacist.

Roberts is not white. He is a proud vietnames male. So the title is misleading.

I would react very differently. Whites are less violent than blacks, see crime statistics, and less likely to steal.

playing the odds and numbers, a black person is much more likely to be violent and steal than a white one.

Facts are facts, they do not represent racism but rather the truth.

if you don't like it, stop being violent, and the facts will change.
we only have each other. And that makes us rich.. . .

Riiight....tell that to the Native Americans of North, South, and Central America, the Pacific Islands, Australia, New Zealand, and the Caribbean. And to the ghosts of the millions of dead black would be slaves lying at the bottom of the Atlantic and the Caribbean and African Coasts. And to the millions buried in unmarked graves since the ships first left England and other parts of slave trading Europe. Tell it to the bodies lying in unmarked graves in black townships like Rosewood, Greenwood Oklahaoma, and many other townships destroyed that are only covered in books like "one hundred years of lynchings" by Ralph Ginsburg. Tell it to the ghosts of the blacks wiped out on the island of Aboriginal Tasmania. A "black person is much more likely to be violent?" So why isn't America in perpetual civil war like Israel and Palestine or the IRA and the British? More likely to steal? Really? What? A car? A microwave? What is that compared to stealing countries, land, millions of people from a continent, identities, wealth, cultures and destinies of the future generations who will never live? You REALLY didn't make that comparison did you? If so, you are proof that insanity can be horizontally transferred generationally.
