South African-actor Atandwa Kani has spoken out about racism in America following an incident where he believes he was racially profiled.
Atandwa, who is currently living in America, took to his social media to share about how as soon as he stepped out of his apartment and onto the road, a white couple saw him and “immediately” crossed the street.
“They are walking towards me and they decide to cross the street as soon as they see me,” he said.
“I thought it was a Covid [Covid-19] thing, so I got my mask, but it wasn’t that. They just walk across the street”, Atandwa said.
He got slightly emotional towards the end and posed a question before ending the video. “So this is what it has come to? Wow.”
This is not the first time the actor is spoke out on racism. It was just last month that Atandwa penned an emotional and fiery open letter to ‘racist white people’.
In a series of tweets, the actor called them out on their entitlement and apparent discomfort at the outbreak of Black Lives Matter protests in America.
