I know what my reaction to this is but I am uncomfortable because, while I recoil in disbelief and even despair, someone posts on AB asking whether maybe the event was entirely justifiable.
One can see both sides, and it's down to the society they live in.
Hopefully it'll mature in time.
1. Not terribly subconscious.
2. No.
out of all reason stupid
Subconscious racism ? Nothing subconscious about it. Out and out racism.
On the basis that this woman would not have tried to question the children if the man with them had been white, it has to be concluded that she was worried that they were being taken against their will, by a stranger.

Her concern was aroused not by their behaviour, but by the skin colour of the adult - that's racism almost by definition.
Neither out and out racism
A valid precaution. A woman spots a man with children who clearly aren’t his. Good for her for questioning it. The children are more important than his sensibilities. He should have thanked her – and so should the mother. I would have.
Valid precaution.
Would not have caused any concern if he had been white and the children black
Pedophiles don’t come color coded
the safety of children is more important than how a potential kidnapper feels about how he doesn't look like his potential kids.
TTT

One thing that is almost universal is that child abductors in the America tend to stick within their own racial boundaries.

A black man abducting white children would be highly unusual. That would be the fist thing that comes to mind.

Secondly, there would be the children’s behaviour in from of their babysitter. Without knowing more - were the children distressed, anxious?

Finally and perhaps, most pertinently - how many abductors take their abductees to their local supermarket, what with all the CCTVs and stuff?

I think we can safely chalk this up to racism mixed with a smattering of stupidity.
Naomi - // A valid precaution. A woman spots a man with children who clearly aren’t his. //

That's fine, as long as the lady challenges every white man she sees with white children. They are equally at risk - or not.

But her decision was motivated by the notion that a black man with white children must be up to no good.

That's racism.
After reading SP's post i have to agree. No one would go to a supermarket with stolen children. Also the behaviour of the children are something to take into concern.

The woman who reported the situation had balls i can tell you that. I would not have in fear of being called a racist, but in reality, this man was not the father of the children so she was right in one aspect.
Safety of the children?

The children were not in danger!
A white driver and two African American children would have received the same treatment ?
Additionally, hundreds of thousands of white American kids have Latino maids in their households.

Should they too be stopped and questioned in case they’re in their way to Peurto Rico to exchange the kids for bags of rice?
I wonder what attracted Mr Lewis to Ms Mango?
