So if she was with 2 white males, would it have looked suspicious?
The fact that it looks suspicious because they are BLACK shows that the conditioning has worked.
If you saw a black girl with two adult white men, you would be suspicious too.
I have no doubt race was the issue they were checked. That doesn't negate from the fact that she is a minor travelling alone with adult men. I dont like that. when questioning moved to harassment, thats what i have an issue with.
I dont have a big problem with them being checked. That child's mother shouldnt have allowed her to be travelling alone with two men, regardless of race.
Don't tell me how I would feel wildfire.
I watched the video and her face looks about as adult as those 'adult men' to me.
I mean, I live in a city where an 18 yr old gets into trouble and on the news and they refer to him as 'the adult male 6'2, black hair...etc.
How old are they? They look like her peers. Her face looks mature, and she probably acts more 'in the know' and 'cool'. After all, she is dancing hip hop or whatever, with black instructors. Dressed to suit the part, et al.
She is not a frail white girl dancing ballet at Julliard with her nose in the air.
Also, what city are they in? How urbanized is it?
All that to say, they look more like peers to me.
I reside in a VERY multicultural city and as a matter of fact, as a young teen in high school, I often rolled my eyes at the amount of white girls who slicked their hair back with a tub of gel, bamboo ear rings, and brought down their baby hairs just like the black teens they went to school with. They were poor like them, lived in the same apartment complexes as them, and would say things like 'bun it dung' and 'yeah famolay I zee it, styll'
So WHEN (not if) I saw Jessica Lombardi walking home from DANCEHALL/Hip Hop practice with 'Jay'and 'B' from Mayhem's Finest Dance Crew I didn't bat an eye.
And When I saw Danielle Wallace with a spiked Mohawk and space boots, and ear spacers with Aston and Brendan, I knew what it is. I lived in Toronto and that is not uncommon.
