Racial profiling
May 29, 2012

when the person singled out is a member of a minority ethnic group, they're left with the feeling that there was nothing random about the closer look – that they were stopped or subjected to extra scrutiny just because of their race or ethnicity.

Racial profiling is based on the assumption that members of certain ethnic groups are disproportionately more likely to be involved in certain criminal activities. If this practice is widely entrenched or officially sanctioned, it also follows that members of non-targeted groups can also expect less police scrutiny.


have any of you been subjected to what you think was racial profiling?

Racial Profiling is real in a sense where I even was a viticm to it at some points at my current age 17. It does tagret people who have done nothing wrong and is a major form of harrasment.

The controversial issue of Australian Indigenous people were by the Northern Territory intervention program occurred.
Children and young people were removed from indigenous communities up in Northern Territory from homes and families due to various social problems... it's still an ongoing debate here in Australia and might still be in the near future....

Re: Racial profiling

I'm 14 and living in Florida, I've been subject to racial profiling before because I'm Japanese and English. Being racially profiled used to really get to me, but I've learned to ignore it and I always think to myself that I'm more mature than them for not racially profiling. I've noticed that I'm attacked more for being Japanese than being English. This is probably due to some Floridians still hung up on WWII.
