#WhileBlack

If you’ve been paying attention to the news lately, I’m sure you’ve read about some of these stories. It involves various Black people who’ve had the police called on them by White people, for various perceived crimes such as STANDING IN STARBUCKS or EXITING AN AIR BNB, or WORKING OUT IN A GYM, or PLAYING GOLF, OR TAKING A NAP IN A DORM, or INSPECTING A HOUSE AS A REAL ESTATE AGENT, or HAVING A BBQ, and several other incidents.

This recently sparked a trending hashtag on Twitter called #WhileBlack, with Black people sharing their stories of being racially profiled. A woman named Leslie Mac had something to say about this.
