How is police profiling - and by that I mean stopping, searching and sometimes even arresting someone based on no more than, say, their skin color - not a violation of our Constitutional rights????

Most arrested happen to be of color. Children develop subconscious biases by age six, And racial profiling is jut that, A subconscious Bias. If we on"t all recognize that we are unavoidably a little racist, We are just ignoring this fact, And by ignoring it, We are allowing this to happen. So before you make a stupid decision like to pull over a black man in a Lamborghini, Ask yourself why and how they are breaking a law. "Being suspicious" is not enough. These statistics @Sourcebaker brought up are suspicious. A young woman offering a strange child Andy is suspicious. The fact that no Black person would ever criminalize their race like that is suspicious. You probably aren"t even entitled to use that word. Do you know to history? It was used to Dehumanize black people and say they were less than. It was send to kick them our of stores or schools. It was used to bully them and you saying that just shows how needy you are. Like in the Simpsons, If you"re cool, You don"t need to tell everyone people just know. You using that word is like that. If you really are above someone, You don"t need to spell I out like that. That"s the most uncool thing you can do. And. Please. Correct. Your. Spelling.

Are you crazy? Even though there is a pattern among criminals, Who gave police officers the right to profile anybody? Second of all, Nigger is an offensive word, And by using that word openly to express your racist opinions, You're being racist and offensive. Third of all, Just because someone is black doesn't mean that they are going to commit a crime. Skin color is not a reflection of character or anyone's predicted actions. It is illogical to conclude that just because someone is black, That they are going to commit a crime. Fourth of all, "unbiased statistics? " So it was unbiased when police officers choked Eric Garner, An unarmed black man? So it was unbiased when George Zimmerman didn't go to jail even though he clearly racially profiled an unarmed black male by the name of Trayvon Martin?

Because policeman know that teyhere is a pattern among criminals. Most of them happen to be niggers, So they are more likely to break a law. Thats called unbiased statistics.
