Is America a post-racial
society? Not yet
, says Kenny Wiley.
While running to catch a bus one night Wiley, a black man, was shouted at by a group of white people asking: "Bro, you running from the cops or something?" and "What'd you steal this time?"
When he stopped to confront them, he was told that they were just joking and that “[w]e saw a black guy running at night, so why wouldn’t we say that?”
