White Couple block Mexican American from his apartment building: Racism in San Francisco

“Today I was not let into my complex by a white couple from Florida that said they would not let a criminal into their complex as they needed to protect it,” Barajas, who is Mexican American, said on Instagram, where he posted a video of the incident. “They thought I was trying to tailgate them to break in and rob them/other cars in the garage.” IG LINK

PLEASE HELP ID HIM. TRIGGER WARNING: On the topic of #racism in San Francisco. Excuse my language in the video, I was a bit shaken up and my Chicano from Compton came out! Today I was not let into my complex by a white couple from Florida that said they would not let a criminal into their complex as they needed to protect it. They thought I was trying to tailgate them to break in and rob them/other cars in the garage. They were driving in full speed, stopped poked their head out and saw a brown boy in a hat and put their car on break. They called me a criminal, told me if I TRULY lived there then I should be ok going around and trying again after they went inside. I showed them my keys and garage remote and they still insisted I leave. My neighbor was out smoking and tried to intervene. As soon as they threatened to call the cops, I started recording. This video is four minutes long and I dealt with this for 4 minutes prior to this.
