What Happens When A White Man And A Black Man Break Into Same Car? [Video]
Do white and black Americans still face different levels of hostility and mistrust in a lot of everyday situations?
Watch this before you answer!
Jason Roberts first got the idea of doing this social experiment one day as a AAA mechanic came to help him get into his locked car, and attracted a lot of attention from onlookers. The AAA mechanic was black.
Roberts decided to replicate and film a similar situation for his YouTube channel, and enlisted Quentin Brunson, a friend and black actor. Roberts and Brunson says this was done to raise awareness on how white and black Americans still face different levels of hostility and suspicion in many situations to this day.
What you’ll notice is that Jason spends almost 30 minutes trying to get in to the car, and wasn’t approached once. Quentin, on the other hand, was in hand-cuffs within minutes.
Watch the social experiment in the viral video, with well over three million hits, below. Please be warned…the police officers do use some profanity.
