Parker fumed that Lewis had been targeted for "babysitting while black".

Police reached out to the children's parents, who have spoken out in support of Lewis.

"I see this black gentleman with two little white kids and I had a amusing feeling", the caller said.

A white woman has been accused of racial profiling for calling the police to investigate a black man whom she saw babysitting two white children at a Walmart.

On Sunday, while babysitting for the 10-year-old daughter and 6-year-old son of his friends Dana Mango and David Parker, Corey Lewis of Marietta, Ga., treated the kids to lunch at a Subway inside Walmart. Why wouldn't they be ok?' Lewis continues.

The mother of the two children, Dana Mango, told CBS 46 that she is stunned that anyone would call the police on Lewis.

The woman following him home and called the cops.

"If I am wrong that is great, I'm thrilled". "I'm being followed and harassed".

Lewis recorded the entire ordeal on Facebook Live. "It's insane ... It's 2018 and this is what I've got to deal with".

Mango says the officer told her Lewis was questioned because he's a black man driving around with two white children.

The woman then followed Lewis in her auto all the way to the street where he lived before calling the police to report him. Then a Cobb County police officer showed up.

The children were scared and confused. "It's 2018. I can't even step out into the community without being profiled".

Lewis said no and that's when the police were called.

"There was only one thing that she saw that was out of place and that was kids of a different race than the person they were with", she added.

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.

Mr Lewis runs a youth mentoring organisation that teaches life skills to young people with emotional and behaviour issues. "He paused and asked 'Are we going to get in trouble for that?'"

After leaving the store, he and the children were hanging out by his auto when the woman pulled up and asked if the children were all right. "That's the question I have". Why was my feeling so amusing?
