“I’m going to call the police,” the white man on the video says as his child begs him not to.

The black man advises the white man that he’s recording on video.

“You don’t need to threaten me,” the white man complains before telling police: “There’s a trespasser in my building.”

“Daddy, please don’t,” the boy tells he father. “I agree with him, daddy. Please don’t! I don’t like this. I don’t like this. Let’s go.”

“He appears to be African-American,” the white man explains to the 911 dispatcher.

“Listen to your son, walk away,” the black man says. “I’ll stop the recording.”
