You live it . . . might as well buy it.
Thank you, Quazi!
Exactly my point. If only those involved know for sure, then it doesn't make sense to tell people what they have or have not experienced.as far as racial profiling, only those involved know for sure.

Moderator's Warning: Alright folks, lets turn down the hostility a notch here.
I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
Criminal NOT racial profiling is what investigators do. It is about far more than a person’s race, religion and sex.
Identifying traits, characteristics, mannerisms and behavior common in criminal acts. Then going out and looking for those specific behaviors in the population IS criminal profiling NOT racial profiling. To suggest profiling is limited to race, religion or sex is profoundly ignorant and demonstrates a complete lack of understanding of its real world application.
Know the difference and remember...its criminal profiling.
When you use race to profile someone, you are using "racial profiling", understand what those two words together means and read what the thread is about. Nobody said that profiling is limited to race, religion or sex, so keep your strawman to yourself. None of that changes the fact that police use racial profiling which affect blacks and Latinos more than Whites, a fact bear out overwhelmingly by the statistics. Unless you claim that black people act suspiciously more often than white people do, the fact remains that police stop blacks more often than white because they are black and blacks happen to be responsible for most crimes even though most blacks are innocent of those crimes.
Koster says despite minorities being pulled over and searched at a higher rate, it’s white drivers who are more likely to be caught with contraband.
Despite the elevated search rates, Hispanics were less likely than white drivers to be found with contraband subsequent to being searched. While the “contraband hit rate” for whites was 24.5 percent, the percentage of Hispanics searched and found to have contraband was 14.4 percent. The “contraband hit rate” for African-American drivers was 17.5 percent.
When police asked permission to search a driver's car without probable cause — something that is rare for all racial categories — it was more likely to be a minority driver. Police used "consent searches" for 0.6 percent of white drivers, compared to 1.4 percent of black drivers and 1.3 percent of Hispanics.
Police were more likely to find contraband material, such as drugs or weapons, in the cars of white drivers, according to the study. The chances were 25 percent for white drivers who agreed to a search, 19 percent for blacks and 13 percent for Hispanics.

So who's being brainwashed about the facts? Maybe you should question your own notions about other races.
Pros that actually do criminal investigations and utilize CRIMMINAL profiling as one of MANY investigative tools will continue to do the job.
Carry on with your bull ****.
