Racial Profiling
Racial profiling shares a connection with racism, the fear of someone who is different culturally, and ethically from the person who is making the judgements. For many years there has been an on-going debate on whether racial profiling is an issue in America. Racial profiling happens to affect more of the Blacks and Hispanics or people of color. The reason the Blacks and Hispanics are who are to affected is because there has been an assumption made they are who are most likely to commit a crime than those of other races or ethnics. It is illegal yet continues to occur, especially in America it has been an issue in the long run, but one factor that worsen the problem was the bombing in 9/11. Judging someone by the color of their skin is considered racial profiling.

According to Keith Rushing “At its core, racial profiling is about racism and stereotypes and assuming the worst of people based on a biased perception of reality that is then projected and multiplied, affecting and endangering everyone of that same race, ethnicity, nationality or religion. I have personally been a witness of police men detaining someone just for the fact that the person was Hispanic and was looking suspicious for riding to slow on the road. There have been studies found of how there are people who cannot even trust or rely on the police because they don’t know if they can feel protected. According to Ranjana Nataraja “The NYPD’s controversial stop-and-frisk program shows similar evidence of racial profiling, with police targeting blacks and Latinos about 85 percent of the time. As Andy McCarthy points out “you can’t be an Islamist terrorist without being a Muslim, you can’t be the head of the Gambino Family without being Itali...
