The Bahamian government issued a rare travel advisory warning young males to be careful when traveling to the U.S.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued the advisory on Friday, urging men to "exercise extreme caution" in their interactions with police officers in America.
The travel advisory warns residents of the Caribbean island, who are nearly 91% black, to avoid being confrontational with police while traveling to America.
"The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has taken a note of the recent tensions in some American cities over shootings of young black males by policemen," the statement reads.
"We wish to advise all Bahamians traveling to the US, but especially to the affected cities, to exercise appropriate caution generally. In particular young males are asked to exercise extreme caution in affected cities in their interactions with the police.
The advisory comes amid rising racial tensions inflamed by the fatal shootings of 2 black males by white police officers in Louisiana and Minnesota.
A 25-year-old black Army reservist shot 12 white police officers, killing 5, at a peaceful protest march in downtown Dallas on Thursday.
Dallas Police Chief David Brown quoted Micah X. Johnson as saying he wanted to kill white people -- especially white officers.
He was cornered in a parking garage and executed by a bomb-wielding robocop following the massacre.
Other officers in Georgia and St. Louis were similarly ambushed and shot by black males in the hours after the Dallas attack.
The rate of black American males killed during non-violent interactions with white cops surged after 2008 -- when Barack Obama was elected America's first biracial president.
