In a racist nation, is it possible to live while black (LWB)?

Racists have decided that the way to express their hatred of black and brown people is to call the police.  For every damn thing.  Who knows, maybe they get lucky and a racist cop shoots one?

So the police get called if black or brown people are having a cookout.  Or napping in the lobby of their dormSmoking a cigaretteGoing homeBeing at home.

The dreary list goes on.

The world is not white.  White people are just now starting to realize that.  They are also realizing that they are not going to be able to change it exercising arbitrary amounts of power.  They are scared, and scared people strike out in many ways.  Calling the police, when you know in your heart that it's a racist act, invoking a racist institution* to take action against a member of another race, is the act of a desperately frightened person.

* - don't take my word for it, look it up.
