A Georgia white woman called the police on a black man who was babysitting two white children.
Corey Lewis, a youth development specialist and the founder of a mentorship program — was babysitting a 10-year-old girl and 6-year-old boy in Marietta, Georgia, when a woman followed him and called police. Lewis took the kids to Subway and to the gas station where he was continually followed by the woman. He captured parts of the ordeal in a series of Facebook Lives, which quickly went viral.
In the first video, the two kids are seen smiling in the back seat as Lewis questions why the woman followed them.
This lady from Walmart harassed, followed, & called the cops on me. ALL because I’m black and have 2 white kids with me. 💔💔 #Inspired By Lewis

A Cobb County police officer then showed up (video above) and questioned Lewis and the children.
“This is what I’ve got to deal with,” Lewis said in the video. ““All because I got two kids in the backseat who do not look like me, this lady took it upon herself to say that she’s going to take my plate down and call the police.”
