It's a reference to the spate of police-calling white people have been doing in the US just because of the presence of black people around them recently.
A small handful of them can readily be seen on the first pages of f/Whiteness and f/Blackness
The person pictured here with the phone is one example of those people, from this article.
And the background is a scene from Black Panther involving a gathering of Wakandans.
Oh okay, I haven't seen Black Panther or that video, so thanks for the explanation. It's fucking ridiculous that someone would call the police on someone else for barbecuing.
Some other examples are white people calling the police on a black Yale student who fell asleep in their common room and black AirB&B users who didn't wave hello. There's also been similar reactions to native american people.
But barbecues hurt at least one white person a year.
