A black youth mentor who was babysitting the children of white family friends was pulled over and questioned by Georgia police this weekend after a white woman called 911 after seeing him with the kids.
Georgia resident Corey Lewis captured footage of the unidentified woman after she confronted him and the two children in a Walmart parking lot, asking the children if they needed help.
He told CBS46 the woman threatened to report his license plate number to the authorities when they brushed her off after she confronted them.
The babysitter kept filming as the woman followed him in her car for nearly an hour.
“We then left to go get gas, she moved closer and waited there,” said Lewis.
Lewis says the woman followed him home, and that a Cobb County officer arrived moments later.
His Facebook Live footage captured the officer questioning the children, who are 10 and 6. The officer then called the parents of the children.
The mother of the two children, Dana Mango, told CBS 46 that she was stunned that anyone would call the police on Lewis.
“I said, ‘Are you saying that because there’s an African American male driving my two white kids, that he was stopped and pulled over and questioned?’ and he said, ‘I’m sorry ma’am, that’s exactly what I’m saying,” the mother told the station.
The father referred to the entire ordeal as “B-W-B, which I guess is the new thing, babysitting while black.”
A spokesman for the Cobb County Police Department confirmed one of their officers pulled Corey Lewis’ car over Sunday afternoon in response to a call.
