    the best positioned people as to intent are the ones doing the scrutiny.  Of course, that doesn't mean they will be honest about it nor does it mean that they can be less aware of the reasons for their actions - meaning that they could be scrutinizing the black person because the person is 'suspicious' or 'dressed wrong' or some such.  And they may fully believe that but the root is based in racist concepts.

    And I will fully agree that a third party white person is the worst positioned person to tell if such scrutiny is racially motivated.
