What I am pointing out is that you are trying to draw an inference from the differences between the two interactions (the one between the white guy and the one between the black guy). The reason this is problematic is you can't be sure there was actually a difference. Because they are not the same individual (their motives, thoughts, and life experiences are all different and would go into shaping such behavior). For all we know, the person who called the cops one the black kid would have called the cops on the white kid, as well.
It's very simple
I voted yes but didn't watch the video.
If you have to ask, the answer is probably yes.
Similarly, "I'm not racist, but..." is invariably followed by something racist.
One of you will end up here next!
The show was edited obviously and to come to any conclusion is to take the bate of the writers. If this was a study linked too by a poster the very pseudoscience nature of the study would be ripped to pieces. Just because this was on tv makes things no different. This wasnt a real study at all therefor no real conclusion can be made from this piece of entertainment.
Be sure to work hard and get lots of overtime. People on welfare want more steaks and free upgrades to smart phones with unlimited data packages.
I bet though that if you put myself in place of the white kid that no one would bother to address me (at least of those people in the video)that they would have just called the cops and kept their distance. My skin is pretty damn white, but I also have long hair and wouldnt be dressed as neatly as those people in the park. Hell walking through parking lots leads too people locking their car doors until Im a safe distance away. Its not because I am white its because I am large and a metalhead.
Exchange that clean looking white kid with a metalhead his same age and they would have been calling the cops more often. Plus that black kid didnt look like a bad kid at all. Put him in some gang looking costume and I doubt any of those park goers would have actually spoke to the kid, a secret phone call would have been all of what those wimpy looking people would have done.
But without talking to the people form the video in length we have no idea why they were saying anything to the black kid at all. As far as we know they thought as I did that he looked like a good kid making a stupid decision. The element alone could turn the results on their head and mean that the park goers were actually trying to help the black kid and didnt care at all about the white kid.
This all turns in a big what if and that is why I dismiss things like this as bs.
BTW if I came upon someone trying to steal such a lame department store bike I would just laugh at them.
