A black man in Georgia who was babysitting white children had the police called on him by a white woman outside a Walmart this weekend.

Lewis recorded the entire ordeal on Facebook Live.

He was out with the 6- and 10-year-olds Sunday when a white woman approached them in a Walmart parking lot.

The footage shows a Cobb County police officer pulling up as Lewis waits with the children outside his mother's home.

The officer questioned Lewis, the 10-year-old boy and the 6-year-old girl who were in the backseat of the auto before calling their parents.

The mum told CBS46: "I said are you saying that because there's an African American male driving my two white kids, that he was stopped and pulled over and questioned and he said I'm sorry ma'am that's exactly what I'm saying".

The parents said that their son attends Lewis' mentoring program and they had arranged for him to watch the children. After asking whether the kids were OK and saying the situation looked "weird" to her, the woman followed Lewis and the kids, Lewis told GMA. As the children's babysitter, Lewis explained that he had taken the kids to have dinner and noticed that they were being followed by a white woman.

Mr Lewis described the incident as an example of "babysitting while black" and suggests that the only reason the woman contacted the police was because of his skin colour.

"She pulled up alongside us and asked, 'Are the kids OK?'" Lewis tells Yahoo Lifestyle.

Lewis said the woman followed him all the way home.

The confrontation ended without issue, with the officer seemingly convinced that the children - who offered similar explanations for what occurred - were fine, but he asked if he could check in with their parents, Lewis said.

Parker said he had a proud moment when, during an interview with a reporter, his daughter was asked if she had anything she wanted to say to the woman.

It adds that Lewis works with youth "to uncover hidden talents, overcome obstacles, enhance confidence, and help them to realize that success is within their reach but also comes with hard work and determination". His kids, he said, consider Lewis part of the family.

"BWB - Which I guess is the new thing: Babysitting while black", David Parker told CBS46.

He first noticed her staring at him as he returned to his vehicle after taking the kids to Subway.
