Georgia resident Corey Lewis is crying foul after a white woman first stalked him and then called the police on him because she feared for the safety of the two white children he happened to be babysitting.
Local news station CBS 46 reports that Lewis was in the parking lot of a local Walmart going on an errand with the two children he was babysitting when a white woman approached him and started questioning him about the children’s safety.
The woman then asked Lewis if she could talk to the children to make sure they were okay — and he refused, as he didn’t see why he should let a complete stranger talk to the children whose safety he was supposed to be guarding.
The woman then followed Lewis in her car all the way to the street where he lived before calling the police to report him.
An officer showed up on the scene and talked to the two children, a 10-year-old girl and a 6-year-old boy, who confirmed that Lewis had not kidnapped them. The police then called the children’s parents, who expressed disbelief that someone had told the cops to investigate their babysitter.
The mother of the two children, Dana Mango, told CBS 46 that she is stunned that anyone would call the police on Lewis.
“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 said.

Trump says ‘Republicans do not believe in socialism’ — but promises to ‘defend Medicare and Social Security’
President Donald Trump complained about socialism seconds before promising to defend socialist programs during his official 2020 re-election campaign kickoff in Orland, Florida.
Trump first complained about Medicare for All, which would expand the popular health care program for seniors to those below age 65.
"America will never be a socialist country," Trump argued, to applause.
"Republicans do not believe in socialism," he argued. "We believe in freedom, and so do you."
"We will defend Medicare and Social Security for our great seniors," Trump bizarrely said next.
Trump introduced his family at his official campaign kickoff — including ‘my late brother Fred, Jr’
President Donald Trump introduced a long-deceased sibling moments after officially announcing his re-election bid during a campaign rally in Orlando, Florida.
"And I am profoundly thankful to my family, I have a great family. Melania, Don, Ivanka, Eric, Tiffany, baron, Lara, Jared, Robert, Marianne, Elizabeth and my late brother, Fred, Jr." Trump said.
Fred, Jr. was Trump's older brother and died of a heart attack almost four decades ago, passing in 1981.
"In a telephone interview last week, Mr. Trump said he had learned by watching his brother how bad choices could drag down even those who seemed destined to rise," The New York Times reported in 2016. Seeing his brother suffering led him to avoid ever trying alcohol or cigarettes, he said."
‘Take a drink every time he says no collusion’: Social media reacts to Trump’s Orlando rally
As President Donald Trump took the stage in Orlando, Florida on Tuesday to officially launch his 2020 campaign for re-election, numerous people all over social media expressed their thoughts on the matter.
Predictably, Trump had his fair share of online supporters cheering him on and wishing him luck defeating the evil liberals and "Floppy Joe" Biden — a new nickname Trump coined that joins the ranks of such other juvenile insults as "Sleepy Joe," "SleepyCreepy Joe," "Crazy Joe Biden," "Swampman Joe Biden," and "1 Percent Joe."
But at the same time, plenty of commentators noted some of the rally's more lacking features — as well as the president's own shortcomings as a leader and as a candidate.
