Sure it is. It's anecdotal evidence, which is evidence after all. Why don't you share your experiences so there's a more complete picture to go off of?

Driving while black: ☑
Walking while black: ☑
Babysitting while black: ☑
Asking for directions while black: ☑
Shopping while black: ☑
Having a cookout while black: ☑
Opening the door to your own home while black: ☑
Complying with law enforcement while black: ☑

Alright, so basically what I'm getting from this is that nothing is okay to do as long as I'm black because, knowing my luck, I'll roll a nat one on a bad day and get accused as a thief while walking to work with a hoodie on.

The sad part about things like this is that I expect ONE of these things (including, but not limited to the above and of course being shot) to happen when I walk outside because WeLiveInASociety™.

Trust me, being 'racist' is something that shouldn't exist at all.
I know you’re saying this as a show of support so just be wary of throwing out labels altogether. Recognizing characteristics of a person that modifies their life experience is actually a good way to reach understanding.

    At least I'm glad such nonsense would never fly in Europe. Sure, racist stuff might happen from time to time but at least they're an exception.
