Racist white man harasses Black woman that was driving around in her own neighborhood.
Julia Santos Groveland, a Black Massachusetts woman posted a video to social media showing Paul Birkhause, a white man following her in his car in her own neighborhood, ultimately interrogating her as to what she was doing there.
“This man followed me home because I went to pick up DOG FOOD at somebody’s house!”
“I just got Karen’d? This man followed me home because I went to pick up DOG FOOD at somebody’s house!”
“He followed me all the way to my house so I turned on a side street and he said he felt “unsafe””
In the viral video shared on twitter, the driver of a convertible BMW corners Julia on a street and begins firing questions at her, asking who she is. It’s reported that Julia Santos has lived in the neighborhood her entire life.
The man asks:
“So what are you driving up Juniper Terrace for?.”
Julia explained that she had just picked up the dog food after seeing a post online.
She then says:
“I don’t feel safe right now.”
“You don’t feel safe? I don’t feel safe with you driving around in my neighborhood.”
“Too many people.”
“Or is it because I’m Black? Is that why?.”
“No.” “I don’t know what color you are. What color are you?.”
