“Check car locks because I’m black”

I am often unsure I locked the car doors, so I give the fob a couple presses to hear the horn. Sometimes there is a person nearby, and I wonder if the person thinks it’s because I’m racist. At a church conversation on race, an African American speaker talked about the subtle racism of “people who check car locks because I’m black.” Now I know.

Keep the conversation going - comment and discuss with your thoughts
