On the United States

My neighborhood has a Facebook group where, mostly, people ask for handyman advice and offer fresh eggs for sale. Today it had an argument about whether or not it were racist to be reporting, to this group, when Black teenagers are walking down the street. Most of those who participated thought it was a good thing to do, “to keep us safe,” and when some started arguing back the thread was deleted. I think it was deleted because the rational people were clearly a minority and the thread made the neighborhood look bad.
