    Re: It isn't Racist to...


    Racial profiling as generally practiced in the United States is not racism. It isn't racist to note that most crimes of certain types are committed by individuals of a certain race, gender and age.

    It isn't racist to do a careful airport screening of young Arabic men boarding planes, and not as carefully screen old white women. Old white women are unlikely to hijack planes and fly them into office buildings, or carry bombs in their shoes.

    It isn't racism to stop cars filled with Hispanics moving north away from the southern border with Mexico.

    I live in an area where there are frequent thefts from automobiles by people who walk around late at night testing door handles. Every surveillance video I've seen from home cameras shows the perps to be black and hispanic teens. Would it be racist for police to stop any young black or hispanic teen boys out walking late at night, to ask questions? Hell no. It would be good policing.

    When someone in response asks if it would be okay for police to stop white men for some reason, I'd say sure, if there is evidence that they are committing the bulk of crime category. Go for it.
