I understand why some deny it. They would feel they're in the same boat with minorities in many ways and are having a tough life. I get it.
But I doubt that the majority of them are followed in a store or stopped by a cop on numerous occasions.
My brother was stopped for no reason and I was in the car with him. He was driving his nice car (can't think of it). Anyway, I had no car so he had to take me to buy groceries during college. And the cop basically--probably--checked to see if the car was stolen because he took down all of my brother's information and then asked him why he was in my city when he was from out of town.
... I've heard of another guy say that he goes to high school and people walk ACROSS THE STREET from him when he walks their way.
A friend of mine and her family was FOLLOWED in a store while they were on vacation and the owner stood right there watching them while a white guy passed by them to shop for something else.
... So I call those people who have a hard life and want to say that it doesn't exist "ignorant". And I call rich folks who say that it doesn't exist "retards".2
