White Woman Calls 911 on a Black Man Babysitting White Kids: Video

A white woman in Georgia called the police on a Black man, Corey Lewis, as he babysat a 10-year-old white girl, and 6-year-old white boy. Their parents, who live in East Cobb, arranged for Lewis to babysit the kids weeks ago.


“This lady from Walmart harassed, followed and called the cops on me,” Lewis says in a Facebook post. “ALL because I’m Black and have two white kids with me.”

Lewis documented the incident on Sunday using Facebook Live. The two videos have since gone viral.

In the first video, with more than 20,000 views, Lewis can be seen in a car driving with the children in the backseat.

“This lady followed me all the way home to my neighborhood” Lewis says. “I’m about to pull up to the crib, and let my mom handle this.”

He pans outside the car window to show the woman following him. He then gets out of the car to record her car coming down the street.

The voice of Lewis’ mother can be heard while Lewis tells her what occurred.

In the second video, with more than 400,000 views, Lewis shows a police car arriving at his home.

“What’s up, man” the officer says when he gets out of the car.

His approach was calm and rational.

“I’m being followed and harassed, that’s what’s up,” Lewis responds.

“So apparently, she saw you at Walmart” the officer questioned.

“I was at Walmart, yeah,” Lewis responded. “I’ve got two kids I’m babysitting. We ate at Subway at Walmart, went and got some gas, and she pulled up talking about, ‘Are the kids okay’

“Why wouldn’t they be okay No one’s yelling. No one’s screaming.”

Lewis then told the officer the woman left and came back, and asked to see the little girl so she could ask her, “Does she know who I am”

He said the woman followed him when he went to get gas and remained there the whole time.

“You mind if I talk to them” the officer asks Lewis.

“That’s crazy!” he responds.

The officer says, “It’s an okay check, to make sure everything is alright.”

He asks the children to step out of the car. They exit the backseat.

“Explain to the officer who Mr. Lewis is, please,” Lewis says to the children.

The young girl tells the officer, “He’s an after-school teacher and he’s babysitting us.”

She explains to the officer where they went and what they did.

“Then this lady started following us,” she says.

Lewis’ mother begins to talk to the officer.

“This is his life,” the mother said of her son. “He’s the head of a business.”

The officer questions Lewis about his business, which he says is called “Inspired by Lewis.”

“I work with kids everyday,” Lewis says.

The officer then asks the children if they’re okay and where do they live.

“Her mother’s a lawyer, actually,” Lewis comments.

The officer asks the kids again, “Are y’all okay”

“Oh my, God. This is ridiculous,” Lewis’ mother says. “Jesus have mercy! What’s wrong with this country”

Lewis had to give the officer the address of his business where he watches children after school.

The officer asked Lewis if he was recording their interaction.

“I’m letting the world know what’s really going on,” he said.

The officer contacted the parents of the children, David Parker and Dana Mango, who told CBS46 they were in disbelief.

“I said are you saying that because there’s an African American male driving my two white kids, that he was stopped and pulled over and questioned and he said ‘I’m sorry ma’am that’s exactly what I’m saying,'” Mango commented.
