In an experiment conducted to demonstrate racism and sexism in American society, a bike was chained to a bike rack in a crowded public park during the summertime. On three separate days, three different actors showed up with a hammer, broke the lock and pretended to steal the bike in broad daylight. The first actor, a White man, was able to get away with no problems. The second actor, a Black man, had several people yell at him, block his path, and call the police on him. The third actor, a White woman, also got away with no problems, and even had a male passerby offer to help her steal the bike in order to impress her.
