  • In the video, Cukor asks Michel to pick the one he's waiting for, if Michel does not, Cukor calls the police and says he Michele's friend, whom he met there, comes to the building a few minutes later (Cukor says that Michel entered the building without stepping in after Cukor opened the door) Go n you, a practice button as "tailgating").

  • Meanwhile, Cukor's little son is crying and asks his father not to call the police. "Daddy, I do not like that, let's go," says his son.

Google, which owns YouTube, did not respond immediately to a commentary request from Forbes . Neither Cukor nor Michel immediately responded to Facebook messages from Forbes .

The video originally published on Facebook has since been viewed more than 1

.5 million times.

The video begins when Cukor asks Michel to call his friend over the phone booth of the building. Michel refuses and Cukor immediately says that he calls the police.

Michel then tells Cukor that he is recording and that Cukor will be the "next person on TV". Both men talk quietly. Cukor's little son cries and says to his father, "Dad, I do not like that, let's go."

"He says he's waiting for a friend and I asked him to dial the phone booth, and he said 'He would not, so I can not tell if his friend is actually here,' says Cukor to the police.

Then Cukor asks for the name of Michel's friend.

The trend : In the past year, several viral videos of white people who have been calling the police for activities such as barbecuing in a park, selling water bottles or swimming in a pool to black people are shown in the social media. The callers in the videos have earned mocking nicknames that have become memes such as "Permit Patty", "BBQ Becky" and "Pool Patrol Paula" and have been cited as examples of the everyday experience of black Americans with racism. Some of the white callers have lost their jobs.

Last year, white Alison Ettel in San Francisco called an eight-year-old girl to the police, who sold water on the sidewalk without permission. Ettel eventually resigned from her role as CEO of a cannabis product company after local pharmacies and distributors stopped running her company's products. "Pool Patrol Paula" was arrested for attacking a black teenager in a public swimming pool and lost her job as a skin care consultant.

Key Takeaway : The video illustrates the difficulties facing black engineers in the San Francisco Bay Area, where large technology companies are making little progress in diversifying the racist composition of their workforce are still largely white and Asian. Some black technicians said that racial bias at work and in the community makes Silicon Valley a worse place to work than other hubs such as Atlanta and New York.
