Re: Here we go again: Florida teen killed in dispute over loud music
There are a lot of factors at play. There have also been some studies that suggest segregation (which is a legacy of racism, of course) make it harder for some people to "read" people from a different ethnic group. (Speaking as a large white guy, I sometimes have to say I get looks of major fear for no reason I can discern when I encounter Hispanics and black in my neighborhood). And I know that happens to nonwhite friends of mine all the time, especially the larger male ones.
Now, most of us would assume that a carload of kids listening to music is probably not a threat. (An annoyance, maybe, but isn't that why every teenage boy in the history of EVER jacks up the stereo in his car and plays it too loud?) But if you are scared of a group of black kids, why do you go and hassle them? Unless you have a gun and are looking for trouble? And you're too ignorant to be able to tell the difference between a bunch of normal boys cuttin' up and boys are inclined to do, or kids who are genuinely hard cases?
Just shut up, pump your gas and leave.
