312-Chase The Black Man – Athens, Greece

It was my observation that there are virtually no Black people in Greece. The only ones I saw were most likely undocumented aliens from Africa selling their wares on the street in the Plaka (old part of Athens). They would display their wares (purses, wallets, belts, etc.) on a sheet on the sidewalk and wait for the police to arrive and chase them. They would quickly package up their goods in the sheet, throw it over their shoulder and run as a group down the street like a bunch of Black Santas. No one was ever arrested or taken away – apparently it was just the thrill of the chase. I saw this happen several times and finally got the opportunity to take a few photos of the action.
