You are sitting in your car at a stop light, parking lot, etc. you notice a strange man approaching your car who happens to be black. Do you lock your doors?
Yes. But because it is a strange man, not because it is a black man.
My car auto locks after driving for like a minute... and the back seat came with the child locks on and I haven’t made the effort to change it.
It bothers me that cars now auto lock
I've never liked driving or riding with the doors locked, thats always bothered me.
Well my car is old but even it has automatic locks. But I actually gave a black guy a ride one time that was running toward my car.
I always keep my doors looked.
No, because they auto lock when car is in Drive
They are already locked.
My car is always locked.
We could leave it at “strange man approaching your car” and the answer would be he same
“Strange” is the operative word here.
No. Because they are already locked..
I don’t care what color you are or what sex you are, I’m locking my doors.

Regardless of his color, I would lock my doors. Also, they automatically lock when I put the car in gear.
Automatic locks dude.
The doors all lock when I put the car I to gear
My doors are always locked. If I’m with my husband and he picks up something in store, first thing I do is lock the doors. There are bad people everywhere.
The color of the man would not enter into my thought process, and my car doors are almost always locked whether I am in the car or not. I consider using locks to be common sense.
My doors are locked way before that, in my driveway.
No - the doors auto-lock so they are already locked. Butch even if they weren’t I wouldn’t go out of my way to lock them just because someone is walking toward me.
Don’t borrow trouble.
Actually not locking your doors is asking for trouble. Carjacking is a real problem.
My doors are already locked, they lock automatically when I start driving.
No. I roll down the window and ask him if I can be of assistance.
That strategy works fine in the sticks of Johnson County. Try that at 15th & Mulberry in Des Moines at 10pm at night and then get back to us!
Our doors are automatically locked. I don’t care what color a stranger would be. If you wanted to speak I would crack the window down. I do not give it to panhandlers.
My doors automatically lock when I kick it into drive....
Doors are always locked, no matter who it is.
They would already be locked.
I lock them if any man approaches my car
Mine lock automatically when I hit 10 miles per hour.
As “proof of racism” I have heard several people claim if a black man approaches a strangers car they lock their doors. This is a smart thing to do if any stranger approaches your car and not a sign of racism.
? So, why did you specify black in the poll?
Because some are so afraid of being called a racist they would be less likely to do the smart thing and lock their doors just because the stranger is black.
I suppose there is some logic in that thought .. I just don’t see why skin color is an issue ... suppose someone fell into green paint, looks for help, and you cannot tell what color of skin they have?
I once had a black doctor who asked me for my permission to touch me — I was, like, why are you asking? You’re a Doctor!
That’s my point. Locking your door when a stranger approaches is the smart thing to do, but many claim it is racist if it happens to be a black stranger.
Doors are already locked.
Say you noticed you forgot to lock them?
Then I don’t think about them just because I see someone. I never touch my door locks they lock and unlock automatically.
Now if anyone approaches my car in the dark and I’m not driving for Uber at the time, my hand may go to something by my knee.
