It's a vicious cycle that we have created. We profile people that look a certain way. The people being profiled portray themselves that way because they assume that's what gets them results. The woman in revealing clothes knows that attracts more men, the guy wearing a NASCAR shirt fits in with the rest of the NASCAR fans, the black guy on the corner knows people will come to him for drugs. You can call it racial profiling all you want. I think its simply using the data and indicators in your mind to deduce what kind of person someone is based off of appearance. We are trained to do it in the military. In Iraq, you see an Arabic male, 18-30, taking pictures of your guardposts, you swoop out and detain him. That's not profiling. That is predicting his intent by using indicators that we have associated with terrorist activity. Could he simply be a student of the University of Baghdad doing a report on the American occupation? Sure, he could. But the indicators suggest other intent. By the way, that's a true story about the Iraqi guy. I will debate this with someone all day because EVERY person is guilty of stereotypes and profiling. Its called having a discerning mind. Not racism
    This has nothing to do with my post or Oscars at all? You are talking about profiling in general, not race based profiling. Race can be and is a part of a larger profile. I was a police officer so everything you just stated I already know.

    Again has nothing to do with what he suggested or my reply.

    Re: The new definition of "Racist".

    Never have i said all blacks are lazy, steal, etc. I merely pointed out that enough blacks act in a certain way to create the stereotype. And blaming it on racism is not the solution. The solution is altering the behavior. The same is true for any other race and their stereotypes. Whether it be soccer hooligans, nascar rednecks, whatever.

    My problem is that it seems that anytime anyone says anything negative about blacks, no matter how true it may be, someome starts screaming "racism")

    and that is bull****.

    if 10% of blacks behave a certain way, and some ignorant whites base their view of all blacks on those 10%, then the problem is with those ignorant white people, not the 10% of blacks.

    if you judge & view tens of millions of people based on the possible activities of a small percentage of those folks, you are being ignorant & prejudiced.

    and no, most folks will only yell "racism" when racism is truly afoot.

    2: A belief that your race is superior to that of another race.
    I'm sorry. I couldn't find a option to vote with. I'd vote for: A belief that a race is superior to that of another race. That's it, simple.

    Oh, I thought that this thread just started. Boy, the results sure didn't resolve any differences as they were all ove the place.
