Racial Profiling Definition
Racial profiling has caused minorities to have a lot of trouble. 88% of people who were stopped and frisked in New York city were innocent. 87% were African Americans and Hispanic Americans. Many unarmed, colored people have been killed for being suspicious. How do you decide that? By their skin color. NO! In Virginia there has been many incidents where all ethnicities other than whites have been pulled over or suspected. All the people we have talked about so far were shot or killed for reasons containing racial profiling, imagine how many people have to face this and are sometimes even shot at if they do not comply. Last Year cops frisked and searched 520,079 drivers. 65% stopped were white and 73% were black. Charlottesville has been clashing with the police for a long time now and they have asked them to keep records of when cops risk and search people. There chief is not allowing it. Are they hiding something?
TO Solve Racial Profiling....
2. Test police opportunities to practice in situations.
3. Give cops rubber bullets and real bullets so you can hurt and then injure if necessary.
