Driving While Black, abbreviated as DWB, is a phrase in the contemporary American vernacular that refers to the criminalization of black drivers. An alternate phrase, Driving While Brown, is more encompassing, referring to the crime of being a non-caucasian driver.
In July 2009, a black Québécois named Joel Debellefeuille was pulled over by Longueuil police because, according to documents, "his Quebecois name did not match his skin tone." He was also questioned as to if the car was his.
