    I saw asian, hispanic, white and black people walk by not caring about it. Is it "racist" if everyone agrees?

    Then again, if your car is stolen it is more likely to be a black or hispanic who stole it than a white guy. Is it racist if the odds say your "racism" is correct?

    Location changed. If you`re known in an area people don`t think about it. I`ve broken into my car before and I`ve also sawn off a lock on a friends bike. Granted I`m white, but I was also in areas where people recognised me.

    My brother was up and his business partner was waiting inside the work van outside the house just waiting. Police came and questioned him.

    My friend (black) was sawing a lock of a bike near the school years ago no problem.

    A bunch of factors will determine the response, as I said location. White guy was outside a hotel and closed front shops. Black guy was outside a open shop front with people loitering around.

    Did the whit guy drive up and park it at both locations? Then it`s not odd to see the white guy having no issues but a black guy coming 2 minutes later have issues...

    Not saying racism doesn`t exist but distortions like this to fit an agenda always p1ss me off.

    Black guy is on Hollywood Blvd. High crime area with a high and suspicious police presence.

    I call BS. Notice the camera work did not focus on people`s reactions while Quinten was visible? I am willing to bet $1,000 that Quinten got very similar reactions which would have shown if they filmed his attempts with the same style they did as white boy`s. What I saw more than anything was: a)people tend to ignore obnoxious, ubiquitous car alarms, and b) people tend to mind their own business in larger cities.

    Also, the problem with this "experiment" is that it is not very scientific. All it takes is luck of the draw; one nosy person, and white boy is going to jail. Repeat it a hundred times in locations all over the country, and I`ll be impressed.

    Finally, trying for only a half-hour in a larger city is not going to get a police response. I live in a city of only 260,000. It took the police more than a half-hour to respond to a fist fight outside of an upscale business.

    And the cop passing the car alarm? Not surprised...that noise is r

    @ gpig07 - Read much into things?
    No, i don`t "hate" them, or any other group {except illegal aliens}. But having a negative opinion on this topic does not = hate. It means I`ve had or observed negative situation and can relate past experience to current situations. That`s what "experience" is.

    Secondly, look up the statistics and see which races are disproportionately more likely to steal, break into a car etc. Do those figures make me "hate"... no.

    As for location, they did put the black guy in a location where he is more likely to be challenged - Hollywood Blvd. I`d call that "staging" the video. Does that mean I "hate" him? Again no.

    "Grow up you whiny inbred hillbilly." Stop dreaming of the world as rosy rainbows and face it how it really is, puppy.

    Not where I live. Your personal experience is not a universal truth.

    `No, i don`t "hate" them, or any other group {except illegal aliens}.`

    Just so you have your hate all sorted into neat categories. With legal definitions and all. That`s fair enough Looking at the world as it is, who are the most hate-worthy people? The desperately poor who cross the border without documents to work in gruelling, unregulated, often dangerous jobs for sub-minimum wage and are treated like crap.

    Yes, that`s who we should hate Let`s all focus on them rather than the people who profit from the system.

    LordJim - stats is stats. I did not say, nor should anyone infer, that they commit more crime because they are black. Another way to interpret the statistics is "Poor people commit more crimes" and blacks are disproportionately poorer than whites.

    But for the purposes of this thread, I am not surprised, nor is it "racist" that the black buy was challenged before the white guy.

    LordJim - you have woefully poor knowledge of what illegal aliens do in the USA. I have been forced out of two jobs by illegal labor, there is no reason for me to like them.

    And your stereotype that they work "in gruelling, unregulated, often dangerous jobs for sub-minimum wage and are treated like crap" is ignorance. They are not all picking crops. They take the same jobs anyone else does. Construction, plumbers, painters, sales, truck drivers. And the hispanic community has a large support structure in place to help them when they arrive here.

    But this is all a different topic from the purpose of this Thread. We can do "illegal bashing" some other place.

    LordJim, "Yes, that`s who we should hate Let`s all focus on them rather than the people who profit from the system."
    Illegals get a great deal of profit in free medical, food stamps, food banks, housing assistance and free education.... none of which they paid into via taxed income. So based on your criteria to focus on "people who profit from the system" they are a PRIME candidate.

    `I did not say, nor should anyone infer, that they commit more crime because they are black. Another way to interpret the statistics is "Poor people commit more crimes" and blacks are disproportionately poorer than whites.`

    With you on that.You`re right. Although I would add that rich people get away with crimes because they are rich.They don`t show up on the stats.

    `you have woefully poor knowledge of what illegal aliens do in the USA.`

    Probably. I just get my information from popular culture and the internet. In the UK illegal immigrants are an exploited and basically powerless source of cheap labour in the less popular and more dodgy employment fields. I know that.

    Free medical care, food stamps and schooling for illegal immigrants? I guess they have it better than you. It`s the Big Rock Candy Mountain once you are in. Well, if you say so.But really, of all the socio-political demographics to chooose to hate you picked this one?

    LordJim, "rich people get away with crimes because they are rich."
    Agreed. A rich guys steals 100 million dollars and walks... a poor man steals 50 dollars and spends years in prison.

    Okay. So the white guy tries for a few minutes, arousing the suspicions of the bystanders. Maybe someone calls the cops?

    When the cops get there, they arrest them ALL because it appears that they are BOTH trying to steal the car.

    Way to simulate racism guys.

    Holy crap this is stupid.

    LordJim - the UK is 90% white, I sure hope it`s mostly white people committing the crimes there.

    People seem to really think they would treat a skinny Asian female grandma the same as a black guy, with all of the cliche clothing and speaking style, the same.

    If you really would treat the two the same, and without even considering the most likely possibilities, there is something wrong. We get it, you think you`re tolerant. Now take your head out of the sand.

    Stop tolerating mediocrity. If blacks are so insecure at their crime rate, they must look inward. Self-reflection time.

    Certainly, you should never convict people based off of this, but these are basic situational intelligence gathering techniques. I mean, come on.

    I think the key thing here is to remember we are all human and as a race we need to collectively grow up and realize that. Illegal alien or immigrant are pretty vile terms in our society that people really love to grasp on to and quite frankly it`s pretty childish.

    Hmmm. . .I guess in my neighborhood people would have stopped to help, but I live in a rural area. Even the police would have asked to help. I guess that is just the difference between country and metro.

    Do you know what I find the most disturbing about this entire thing? The fact that the first officer walked up with his gun drawn and started cursing from the beginning.

    You have to think. The white looked as though he may have actually driven that car. The black guy, not really. I`ve been stopped 2 times in the last six months for no reason, just random stops on the way home from work. Put a clean shaven, well groomed black guy out there, there would be a different reaction. You put a college-looking white kid out there and a thug looking black guy, wtf did you expect?
    If you want stereotypes to go away, stop proving them true.
    Stop this "a black man can`t get a fair deal" crap. It`s old and tired.
