"Say Can You See": do you notice people not of your own race in public?


Say Can You See”, by William Leigh, subtitled as “a short film about street photography, pre-pandemic and post George Floyd.

Near Times Square in NYC, a black man wears a T-shirt inviting others go give him a hug.  The shirt confronts the passerby, “I am a black man”.

Of course, I am more likely to notice men I would feel attracted to (white).

The film runs about four minutes and has a ground-bass figure in the background music.
