    Pretty solid example of the stereotypes we all carry.

    One can believe that, if they desire. A video can be cut any number of ways to show what the editors want to show, in general.

    This is a direct, yes-or-no question: Does racism occur in this video?

    Did the black kid get away with the bike?

    This is a set up video. The white kid looked like he would be riding a bike and must have lost his key or something not to mention that you just don't expect a thief to be that obvious. They dressed the black kid like a hood and made it look like he would never actually ride a bike.
