Perspectives on Race

A Discussion about Events Concerning Race

Racism in the Car

I found a video on youtube that addresses the issue of white people believing that a black person that pulls up next to them wants to cause them harm. The video is meant to be funny, but it is sad at the same time because this actually happens, and it has happened to me personally a couple of times.

  1. thereare actually more commercials like this that I found on youtube with the same guy. I don’t think this is just a black and white thing because my grandmother as well as some of my friends who are black do the same thing especially in certain neighborhoods.

  2. Although I can see the humor in this video, it is sad that this actually happens. I would not say that “locking your doors and rolling up the windows” is only done by White people because I have family members who do the same thing if they feel we are in a “bad” neighborhood. Nonetheless, the video reinforces the stereotype that Black men are violent criminals always awaiting the opportunity to victimize someone.
