    and what facts are those so far all you provided is assumptions

It should have been obvious that no crime, at all, was being committed, thus all of the folks left to go about their business.
    Go to the hood at 10 pm and see if you don't get racially profiled.

    Since I am white, and I assume "the hood" is meant to be a non-white area:

    Are you expecting that the police will stop/arrest me for looking racially out of place?

    Are you expecting that I will likely be racially targeted by local criminals?

    I actually live in the "hood", and I don't get racially profiled at all. As a matter of fact, I barbecue with a couple of cops all the time. One of them lives 2 doors down. LOL.

    You'll be targetted by police, becaise they'll automatically assume you're there to buy drugs.

    The instructors produced a notarized certificate of guardianship for the weekend, which was confirmed by the parents. This is a legal document, and the police had no business harassing either the daughter or the 2 dance instructors she was with. Their behavior borders on official oppression, and is clearly illegal.

    Do you have proof of that, because I do not believe you. Why don't I believe you? Because I live in a mostly black neighborhood, and I have never had that problem.

    Google third ward, sunnyside. That's where I live. And for you to assume that, if a white person is in a black neighborhood, he must be there to buy drugs, then logically, you have to assume it's the black people who are selling the drugs. Do you really believe that black people, living in black neighborhoods, are drug dealers and pimps, and not working stiffs like the rest of us, just because they are black? If so, then that says a lot about you.

    And I have never had a problem in this neighborhood.

    Well, it's a reality that black neighborhoods are ridden with drugs.
