- Man said, 'Do you think I'm robbing my own car because I'm black? Get out of here & # 39;
A woman was charged with racial profiling after she asked a black man who was sitting in the passenger seat of his car looking in his glove box if he stole the vehicle.
She stopped her bike on a leafy street in Bristol, walked up to the man, and asked him if he knew the vehicle's registration number.
“Do you think I'll rob my own car because I'm black?” He yells. “Shut up and get out of here. Racist. & # 39;
"You look like you're shooting through someone's glove box," says the woman. “Now everything depends on the race, doesn't it? Why do you have to be like this … It's not about racing. & # 39;
When the man gives her the registration number of the vehicle, she says "nice" and turns to drive away. But she comes back a few minutes later to tell the man that "if you live here we should be friends".
The 60-second clip went viral on social media and was viewed more than 1.2 million times. The caption says the man was cleaning the seat when the woman approached him.

It starts with the man yelling at the woman. "This white lady thinks I'm robbing my own car because I'm black," he yells.
"What's your registration number?" She replies. "You look like you're shooting through someone's glove box."
"This is my freaky car!" He shouts. “Right, call the police! Call the police!
“Call her now! You are so racist. Because I'm black, you think I'm robbing my own car. & # 39;
When he gives the woman his registration number, she says & # 39; dear & # 39; and, after screaming further, turns to drive away.
“I'm just checking. Why do you have to be … It's not about racing, ”she says.
After further insulting her, the man says, “Get out of here. I live in this area. P ****. Call the police. Check them out, damn idiot. & # 39;
The woman says her comments were not about racism and that we have a lot of car crime on this street. She later returns to apologize to the man and say, "We should be friends."

The clip was headlined: “This morning I was sitting in my car cleaning the passenger seat. This white lady came up to me and accused me of being a thief.
“I've lived in this area of Bristol for the past ten years. I've parked my car here for years and I've never seen anything like it. & # 39;
A second 45-second clip shows the woman returning to apologize to the man and tell him we should be partners.
"Why are you coming back?" He calls. “No, I don't want you to apologize! They assumed I was robbing my own car for my paint. I do not want to talk to you.
"Can I only say if you live here we should be friends," she says.
Social media users disagree as to whether the man reacted appropriately.
One wrote: “Get a little attention. She asked you politely. Yes, curious, but polite. You didn't have to play the racing card. Just say it has nothing to do with you. & # 39;
"She has come to apologize to you, brother," said a second, "why you have to make it funny and yell."
And a third added: “I see no point in escalating the situation with racist ranting in their direction. She learned her lesson and came back to apologize. & # 39;
But many others disagreed. "I'm sorry this happened to you," said one. "She was absolutely out of line and I think you were right, that's because of racism."
"Coming back is the worst," says another. “She is sad that she is seen as a bad person and thinks that this is the great injustice here. She really believes that you have an obligation to hear her tell you that she is a great person.
And a third added, "And the fact that she feels entitled, like please forgive."
