Recently, a white man decided to show us that race is an important factor in our minds.

His social experiment came about after the brutal murder of a black man who was just jogging through the park when he was slaughtered by two white men. Read on for the full story.

Ahmaud Arbery was shot dead in Brunswick on February 23 while he was jogging through the Satilla Shores neighborhood.

The twenty-five-year-old black man was unarmed and out jogging when he was shot by 2 white men who claimed they thought he was a burglar.

Cellphone footage showing the moment he was shot has prompted national outrage since it surfaced online this week...

The twenty-eight-second video shows Arbery jogging around a neighborhood on a sunny afternoon in late February. The footage ends with 2 loud gunshots.

Once again, this incident occurred in February. It is now May.

A literal murder took place and the criminals were still allowed out on the streets for months before they were arrested.

And all because the video circulated on social media...

A large crowd of protesters marched through the area where Arbery was killed.

So without the video, no arrests would have ever been made.

Is this the kind of society we live in?

Arbery's parents, Wanda Jones Cooper and Marcus Arbery Sr, spoke at a press conference after the footage was released.

"If my son killed the McMichael's son, he would have been arrested on the spot," Marcus Arbery said.

Marcus Arbery said his son, who was an aspiring boxer was athletic and known for taking daily jogs around the neighborhood.

"He took his body very seriously, always ran and had pride in everything he did," he said. "It cuts me deeply how his life was taken. I would have preferred them to come and take my life instead."

Gregory McMichael, 64, and his son, Travis McMichael, 34, were arrested just a few days ago for his murder.

Following the GBI’s announcement of the arrests, Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr released a statement, saying, “This tragedy cannot be undone, but this is the first step in what I am confident will be a swift road to justice." According to ABC, they told police they grabbed their guns and hopped in their truck to pursue Arbery after seeing him running in their neighborhood, believing he was responsible for several recent burglaries.

But those claims are made with no evidence at the time.

As if these two men were allowed to be the judge, jury and punisher when there's a system in place. Why weren't the police alerted? Why didn't you just stop and ask him some questions? Why was shooting him point-blank the only answer?

The shooter claimed his son got out of the truck holding a shotgun and was attacked by Arbery, as per the police report obtained by ABC News.

The 2 men tussled over the gun before Arbery was shot, as seen in the video, which was allegedly taken by a bystander.

Arbery was pronounced dead at the scene by the Glynn County coroner.

And before you get it twisted, no weapons were found on him, according to the police report.

Arbery would have turned twenty-six on Friday.

Cooper-Jones described her son as humble, kind, well-mannered, and beloved by his family and friends. "Ahmaud didn't deserve to go the way that he went," she said.

In honor of his birthday, social media users have set a new challenge.

All across Twitter and Instagram, the hashtag #RunWithMaud has been trending so that people could run 2.3 miles and share it with others who have also done the same.

But one man decided to use his post to create some awareness...

Richard Demsick, also known by his Tik Tok handle @jestertotheking, decided he was going to run 2.3 miles but with a "stolen" TV in his hands to see if anyone stops him or even asks about what he is doing.

In the video he says:

"Alright, I figured it out. I've got my hat on backwards, I'm shirtless like I'm on some episode of Cops and I'm running with a TV..."

He continues:

"Someone's gonna stop me now for sure," he says. "Because if not, then what was the problem with Ahmaud?"

The video has since racked up over 20,000 views on Instagram.

He captioned it: "I don’t understand, made it home safe after my #2.23milerun what did I do wrong? #irunwithmaud #irunwithahmaud #runwithmaud #runwithahmaud #runningwhilewhite."

What an impact.

Apparently, people waved at him and said "hi" to him, but not even one person questioned why he had a TV in his hands... Even when he got home and asked his mother if she was afraid of letting him do this social experiment, just in case things went wrong, she said "no" because a man like him - hinting to the fact that he was white - would never be treated in the barbaric way Ahmaud was.
