Is racial profiling a factor when people list the characteristics of juvenile offenders?

  • Racial profiling is a factor when people list the characteristics of juvenile offenders.

    Racial profiling is a factor when people list the characteristics of juvenile offenders. I do not agree with racial profiling at all but it still exists and probably always will. Especially in the court system, we assume that the minorities are the ones that are getting into trouble and doing the wrong things.

  • Yes,racial profiling is a factor when people list the characteristics of juvenile offenders.

    It is quite obvious that racial profiling is a factor when people list the characteristics of juvenile offenders.People always go by their first impression and white people are more likely to notice someone's race if it is not theirs even if the actual number is quite low and that is why white people are more likely to think young minorities are criminals.

  • Yes, it is a factor.

    Yes, racial profiling is a factor when people list the characteristics of juvenile offenders. The media helps play a huge role in this. Young people of color are portrayed in television and film as criminals and that has an effect on how people think, no matter how wrong it might be.

  • It Can Be

    I think racial profiling could be a factor when people list the characteristics of juvenile offenders, but if they are referring to actual offenders I think it is hard to identify it as racial profiling. Once you've committed a crime and you're in the system how you are characterized and classified may include your race, however you've committed a crime, which precludes profiling.
