As for the studies, hold on. From my searches I'm getting study after study with abstracts that support what I'm saying but want me to purchase the full paper.
The video shows a white guy sawing away at a chained up bike. People ask him if it's his bike, and he says no. The people show no concern.
I'd say that any person obviously trying to take a bike that they admit they don't own fits a certain "profile" - the profile of a thief. Yet most of the people did nothing.
There's more to this than profiling.
Speaking of crime. Most serial killers are white, most kidnappers are white, and most men who go on shooting sprees are white. However, you never hear them described names such as thugs, and nobody ever focus's on their skin color. Why is that?
Hey, White people are no strangers to crime. I don't think anyone is suggesting that. The topic, as I understand it to be, is all a matter of ratio. When 13% of the population does 50% of the crime, any odds maker would put the odds on the black kid stealing the bike over the white kid. Simple common sense.
I'm sure there are plenty white kids stealing bikes and committing serial murders. No doubt. But the crime stats are highly disproportional in regards to black vs. white in crimes committed.
And for some reason, it's racist to point out these facts? I don't see how this problem will ever be addressed if people refuse to acknowledge it. The numbers don't lie.

Diplomacy is the art of saying 'nice doggy" until you can find a gun.
Actually, from my understanding, the appearance that most serial killers are white is more a function of demographics (exacerbated by media and policing habits), and believe the same is true with child molestation.
<<<Contrary to popular belief, serial killers span all racial groups. There are white, African-American, Hispanic, and Asian serial killers. The racial diversification of serial killers generally mirrors that of the overall U.S. population.>>>
