155. I agree, for the most part
However, what do you do when you have to drive around, say, late at night? I have a friend, male, African-american, middle-aged, who got pulled over because he was coming back from a late-night class (he works during the day). This is in Georgia.

There is no good public-transit system in this part of Georgia near his home and job, and this class, while a portion was online, did have parts you had to attend in person, to complete successfully.

He was driving while Black. It was a year-long nightmare for him he finally got cleared up after hiring an attorney he could not afford.
