White Man Interrogates Black Woman Who Was Driving In Her Own Neighborhood
In a video that has gone viral, a white Massachusetts man is seen following a black woman and questioning her as to why she was in his neighborhood, according to The Boston Globe.
- After noticing a BMW following her on her way home, Julia Santos said she pulled down a side street.
- In the video, the man pulls up next to Santos and asks her who she is and why she was in the neighborhood.
- Santos reportedly has lived in the town her entire life and was in a neighborhood less than mile from her home to pick up dog food in response to a local ad she saw online.
- Santos tells the man that she doesn’t feel safe with him interrogating her, to which he responds:
“You don’t feel safe? I don’t feel safe with you driving around in my neighborhood.”
- After Santos asks if it’s because she is black, the man responds: “No, I don’t know what color you are. What color are you?”
Police have opened a criminal investigation into the incident, which Groveland Police Chief Jeffrey Gillen said “deeply disturbed” him. Police said they have identified and spoken with the man in the video, but did not release his name.
