But like the black boy mowing a lawn, black men waiting at Starbucks, three black women renting an Airbnb, the black man conducting real estate business, a black woman falling asleep in a Yale common room, and others, Edwards was on the receiving end of a burden of proof to belong somewhere they all say was tailor-made for them due to their race.
A North Carolina woman says she is the victim of racial profiling after she was allegedly singled out at her neighborhood swimming pool and asked to prove she belonged there - and she captured the incident on video.
"It doesn't say she has to show an ID anywhere", another person adds. Edwards filmed the encounter, where two police officers are already on the scene, and once Edwards proves her key card works for the pool, the police apologize to her and leave. After Edwards became angry because he asked for ID, the attorney said, Bloom called police "to make sure that the interaction didn't escalate".
"If she has a card to get into the pool, I believe that should be enough", one of the officers tells Bloom in the video.
"I feel this is racial profiling", Edwards says. Because this is ridiculous'.

The 36-year-old retired from global football after Euro 2016 but remains Sweden' record goalscorer with 62 goals in total. By now, anyone still mentioning England in this vein in conversation deserves to be asked how long their coma lasted.
"This is a classic case of racial profiling in my half a million neighborhood pool", Edwards posted on Facebook. "I'm with a baby", Edwards scoffs. The man, who served as chairman of the pool (whatever the hell that means), has been forced to resign from the homeowners association board and, much more importantly, has now lost his job, according to a statement released by the company.
The member then asked Bloom to verify Abhulimen' address, and when she gave what appeared to be a different one, Bloom said he thought "there's something a little askew" and asked for her ID. In the video, Edwards can be heard explaining what happened before police were called.
Company spokesman Brian Risinger confirmed that Bloom's separation was "effective immediately". Edwards tells the officer that only a keycard is needed, which she possesses, arguing that she wouldn't have been able to enter the premises with a baby in her hand if she didn't have a keycard in the first place.
Edwards wasn't required to show any form of ID to get into the pool area, and used her keycard to get in, according to the Daily Mail. "And so my goal here is to give you better expression of my full view as a person, and express my honest regret for the actions that I took that day". Edwards' pool card opened the entrance. "He called the police to make sure that the interaction didn't escalate", said Vermitsky. Vermitsky issued a statement Friday on behalf of Bloom, and said his client had to take his wife and children away from their home to a safe location.
Sonoco posted this statement on Friday to its social media accounts. "The well-documented incident, which involves activities at a neighborhood pool, does not reflect the core values of our company, and the employee is no longer employed by the company in any respect", Sonoco said in a statement.
"Apparently it was not enough for him", Gulkham told the paper.
