Cops can’t see us with you

People are afraid in parts of the USA to be seen with white people. I was down in Texas, and a couple of black kids asked us if we wanted to play some basketball. We said yes and we played for about an hour and a half until they said something. “we need to go before 7 because the cops come around and they will be concerned if they see us with you.” at that point I didn’t know what to say. We were just having a good time.
