Two journalists were just doing their jobs near Davis Elementary School in Texas. Then, they had an unexpected encounter.


Reporter Homa Bash tweeted that she and photographer C.J. Johnson were approached by police responding to a call that a "Hispanic-looking woman and black man with a suspicious white truck and camera" were near a school.


Bash, who joined the station from Cleveland last month, is of Indian descent. Johnson is black.


Bash’s tweet struck a nerve in a country grappling with racial tensions. It has been retweeted more than 43,000 times since Wednesday afternoon. Commenters offered apologies, observations about racial profiling and stories of their own encounters with police.
