Ge­or­gia po­lice called on black man babysit­ting white kids

Rome News-Tribune - - NEWS -

A white woman who spot­ted a black man babysit­ting two white chil­dren called po­lice and then fol­lowed them home in Ge­or­gia.

WGCL-TV re­ported Tues­day that the woman stopped Corey Lewis out­side a Cobb County Wal­mart and asked to speak to the kids. He re­fused, so she called po­lice and fol­lowed them to his home.

An of­fi­cer ar­rived and ques­tioned the chil­dren, ages 6 and 10, and called their par­ents, David Parker and Dana Mango. The cou­ple says Lewis is a fam­ily friend and their son at­tends his youth pro­gram.

Mango says the of­fi­cer told her Lewis was ques­tioned be­cause he’s a black man driv­ing around with two white chil­dren.

Parker said he guesses “B-W-B is the new thing, babysit­ting while black.”
