She followed him out of the parking lot, to the gas station across the street, and to his home, where Lewis, who is black, was questioned by a Cobb County police officer about why he had with him two young children, who are white.

Lewis recorded his interaction with police and uploaded the video to his Facebook page, where it now has more than 446,000 views.

The officer, seeming slightly befuddled, asked to speak with the children - identified by "Good Morning America" as 10-year-old Addison and 6-year-old Nicholas - who confirmed that Lewis was charged with picking them up after school, seen in the video. When Mr Lewis refused, the woman followed him home and called the police.

The officer questioned Lewis, the 10-year-old boy and the 6-year-old girl who were in the backseat of the vehicle before calling their parents.

A few minutes Later, Lewis broadcast his encounter with a police officer. "I called back and a police officer answered the phone".

He told the outlet a white woman "pulled up alongside us and asked, 'Are the kids OK?'" after he took them to a Subway sandwich store inside the Walmart.

A black youth leader said he had the police called on him in Georgia over the weekend because he was babysitting two white children.

In July, a white woman nicknamed "Permit Patty" called the cops on a black girl selling bottled water.

Lewis told Newsweek that he did not speak to the woman or file a police report after the incident.

"Because I got two kids with me ... that don't look like me", he can be heard saying in the first video.

The list of things black people aren't allowed to do without potentially summoning police involvement continues to grow.

Parker and Mango said they don't believe that the woman was trying to protect their children because they never showed any signs of being in danger. "I said 'why wouldn't they be?' She gave me a smirk and then left".

"For B-W-B, which I guess is the new thing - babysitting while black", Parker told CBS46, referencing the racial profiling term "driving while black".

'She pulled up talking about, are the kids ok?

"I noticed we were being watched", Lewis told Newsweek. "They weren't crying, they weren't distressed", she said.

In the videos, Mr Lewis says: "It's 2018".
