A Conversation With My Black Son

Ask almost any minority parent and they’ll tell you the hardest thing was giving their children “The Talk”, not about the birds and the bees, but about what to do when, not if, they are stopped by the police.

In this short documentary from Op-Docs at the New York Times, parents reveal their struggles with telling their black sons that they may be targets of racial profiling by the police, referred to within the communities as DWB (driving while black/brown).

Highly recommended.
