Is Profiling Racist, or Does Not Profiling Make You Ignorant?

Since when is something we do every day taboo, like profiling? Every American who can think, profiles. If you are looking for a mate, you profile. In fact, if you search for a mate on line, the first thing you do is establish a profile. You profile yourself!

When you fill out a resume to look for a job, your resume is a profile. When you show up for the interview, you are being profiled by your potential employer. You beginning to get the picture?

The doorman at a trendy bar profiles, and you won't see anybody getting into one of New York's or LA's trendy clubs who dresses like they are from the chess club. Those same doormen reject anybody wearing hoodies too.

Profiles are based on statistics -- the propensity of certain demographics to do certain things. So for example, if you're black, know that you have a 93 percent chance that the person who commits a heinous crime against you will be black, hoodie or no hoodie. That's not the fault of statistics, those are the facts, and the facts are the fault of black thugs.

Anybody remember Georgia teenager Bobby Tillman, who was stomped, kicked and punched to death by four young men, for no apparent reason or the case of Derrion Albert, a Chicago honor student stomped to death by a group of his peers?

But don't expect the race-baiting blacks to sound any alarm bells.

As Javier David wrote in The Griot, back in 2010:

"far too many [black community leaders] remain on the sidelines when they should be forcefully addressing the dysfunctional behavior that is far too commonplace in black communities."

But don't think the groups who is supposed to be fighting for all colored people is speaking out against black on black crime as David further comments:

"...the NAACP has issued a blizzard of press releases and public statements on a range of issues, yet one searches in vain for a call to action on criminality in black neighborhoods...the organization's most noteworthy contribution to public discourse was notoriously misguided feud with the Tea Party movement that alleged its members were motivated primarily by racism. Indeed, both the NAACP and the Urban League have largely devoted themselves to supporting President Obama's policies, while remaining silent on the near-apocalyptic violence that takes place in black communities on a daily basis."

Translated: Neither the NAACP nor the Urban League will get involved in protesting any criminal activities against black people unless somebody white -- or half white -- is involved.

And what of Muslim profiling?

Recently the NYPD came under fire for profiling Muslim men ages 18-35 and there was massive outcry against the cops. The truth is, if Muslims in that demographic would stop blowing stuff up, they will cease to be profiled. Who do they expect the NYPD to watch, 80-year old grandmothers, or maybe 13 year old Mexican girls?

The NYPD didn't wake up one day and put a fatwa out on Muslims. In case people have forgotten, Muslims blew up the World Trade Center buildings in the name of Islam. Further the NYPD has thwarted many more attempts by Muslims to create havoc in America. Here are a few of the dozens of examples that we know of:

  • Six Yemeni men arrested for providing material support for Al Qaeda and running a terrorist cell in Buffalo NY.
  • Eleven members of the Virginia Jihad Network were arrested, accused of training for holy war around the globe.
  • Seven men arrested after discovered plotting to bomb the Sears Tower and FBI offices.

But the ACLU and about every other Liberal imbecile wants you to believe that this type of profiling is against the rights of Muslims. NOT profiling Muslims is against the rights of Judeo-Christian Americans.

Muslims all in the U.S. and abroad plot world domination, and find more and more creative ways to blow up Americans, but we are not supposed to profile them to show our tolerance. Sure; dead people are amazingly tolerant.

Forget what you know, what you observe about the reality of your world is what the Left wants you to do. In the world of the Left, it is bad cops who have created the black on black crime statistics, and not the fault of black people for killing each other. Also with Liberals, everybody is equally suspicious when it comes to blowing up buildings, Americans, or the military, so profile everybody equally. We all get a trophy.

I say, be proud profilers. Refuse to take Liberals' tolerance classes, and demand classes that teach you better statistical profiling techniques. Let any challenger to your right to profile know that you have profiled them as an ignorant, racist, meddling Liberal, and that you stand firmly by that profile.

    What fact?
  • CAPISCE Tom 2012/04/05 04:27:09
    Fact is the prison population is over 80% Black---that's not racist just reality
  • Tom CAPISCE 2012/04/05 05:35:03
    Yep and a great deal of them, falsely imprisoned, another bunch serving longer sentences than Whites convicted of similar crimes. THEN we are PROFILED, and Whites doing the same things receive far less scrutiny , and left on the streets. MOST of the Blacks in jail are there for, " Black ON Black," crimes from murder, drugs,or property crimes.

    THEN there are those dirty bastards that should never see the light of day again. Those would be the ones in percentage of Whites that should be there as well.

    There are laws written SPECIFICALLY... specifically!... for more sever punishments of Blacks, than Whites

    The REALITY is (often) Blacks are imprisoned because of the racist judicial system.

    Of course you disagree, since all Blacks are guilty of something, they are (all) suspect!
  • CAPISCE Tom 2012/04/09 22:12:01
    Yea everyone in jail is innocent
  • Tom CAPISCE 2012/04/10 02:59:42
    You said that, not me!... However; there are many Black men in jail that are innocent.
  • CAPISCE Tom 2012/04/10 13:29:18
    Cmon man, really?
  • Tom CAPISCE 2012/04/10 14:55:57 (edited)
    NAW! ... just made it up, 8 Black men released from prison in Ga. in last 10 year that spent any average of 22 years in prison for crimes they never committed. DNA evidence proved them innocent!
  • CAPISCE Tom 2012/04/10 19:26:50
    White me get falsely convicted as well-----Hispanics too, so lets not convict Zimmerman improperly. P.S. --If Black music and culture didn't glorify violence and gangs maybe everyone wouldn't be suspicious as they are---Black on Black crime is common place
  • Tom CAPISCE 2012/04/10 22:39:33
    Black on Black crime is out of control, crazy, and ignorant. The hip hop generation/culture is a disgrace.

    Now what does that have to do with a person shooting another person down in the streets, and not having an arraignment, trial, hearing, inquest?

    If Zimmerman had been White and Martin Black, you can bet your nut sack there would have been an arrest.

    White men have been documented as doing all types of heinous crimes against Blacks, I guess we should keep our eye on every White man, according to you logic!
  • Seonag Tom 2012/04/05 11:44:13
    When based on eye witness testimoney, video, etc. There was an incident in NYC about 8 or 9 years ago which my husband observed while working in the city. A young black male was shot and killed. All the witnesses described the shooter as black. A few even thought they recognized him from a gang. The police started looking for a black male. Immediately Al Sharpton showed up, shouted racial profiling and demanded that whites and hispanics be questioned. So, do you profile based on witnesses and video or do you throw that out the window and hope you get lucky?
  • Tom Seonag 2012/04/05 13:53:13
    To hell with Sharpton!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

    Witnesses, and video, are NOT PROFILING!
  • Seonag Tom 2012/04/05 19:55:01
    Well, that's the 'fact' I'm referring to in my answer ---- police profiling based on witness testimony and other evidence.
  • Tom Seonag 2012/04/05 21:16:10
    You don't know what, "PROFILING," is!
  • RJ~PWCM~JLA 2012/04/04 12:46:30
    Profiling is.....
    not racist if it's based on evidence.
  • Tom RJ~PWCM... 2012/04/04 16:01:06
    Like what?
  • RJ~PWCM... Tom 2012/04/04 16:06:18
    I would've thought it's obvious. Evidence that certain crimes are usually committed by certain types of people.
  • Tom RJ~PWCM... 2012/04/05 04:13:52
    Not (all) those certain type of people commit crimes, so make them suffer for those that do. I get you!
  • RJ~PWCM... Tom 2012/04/05 13:16:30
    Obviously you disagree.

    Why don't you see if you can do it WITHOUT putting words in other people's mouths?

    Because he's a liberal and the only way for them to not look stupid at every turn is to change the narrative during the discussion.
  • RJ~PWCM... Thor Am... 2012/04/05 13:36:04
    lol, right!

    It's as if we were to say "Okay, so you want terrorists to go free and kill thousands of people. Got it!"
  • Tom RJ~PWCM... 2012/04/05 13:54:15
    That's what YOU said!
  • RJ~PWCM... Tom 2012/04/05 20:55:31
    OMG. Stupid baby games.

    I said this:

    "I would've thought it's obvious. Evidence that certain crimes are usually committed by certain types of people."

    You said something TOTALLY DIFFERENT.
  • Tom RJ~PWCM... 2012/04/05 21:19:21
    You mean, " certain types of people," that resemble other people, that don't commit any crime. PROFILING, based on how a person looks..... and you think that's right?
  • RJ~PWCM... Tom 2012/04/06 00:05:15
    Okay, listen, never mind. You want to change what I say and then argue against YOUR version. That's your right, but do it by yourself.
  • marylou5 RJ~PWCM... 2012/04/04 16:33:02
    You mean, like if the only planes that were subject to highjacking and bombing were
    because of Muslim terrorists?
    Just saying!
  • RJ~PWCM... marylou5 2012/04/04 16:50:05
    Nope, I mean what I said, not what you said.
  • CAPISCE 2012/04/04 12:31:05

    Racial profiling works---if the prison population was 80% Asian the country would be rightly suspicious of the Asian population.
  • Tom CAPISCE 2012/04/04 16:02:01
    "Racial profiling works," as long as you are not the race being profiled!
  • marylou5 Tom 2012/04/04 16:35:50
    Profiling is not racist but common sense...babies and senior citizens in diapers didn't blow up airplanes or create 911.
  • Tom marylou5 2012/04/05 04:16:06
    Let miss treat all people that look like they (might) do what you (think) they might do. Let's just treat everybody like a criminal, just in case. Gotcha!
  • marylou5 Tom 2012/04/05 04:44:11
    Sorry that you feel that is necessary...not my style!
    I take people at face value unless they give me reason no to
  • Tom marylou5 2012/04/05 05:39:17
    ... and so should the judicial system. A person should not be suspect criminally for the color of their skin, style of clothing, or zip code. All people should be judged by the law, "at face value unless they give me reason not to!"
  • marylou5 Tom 2012/04/05 05:52:25
    Unfortunately.....some zip codes/and or clothing have become suspect and objects of concern due to concentration of criminal activity.

    There is a point where common sense enters the picture when gangs and/or drug activity are congregating in those areas and harming the innocent on a regular basis.

    That's addressing "face value" as opposed to sticking your head in the sand.

    Everything is relevant. You don't send the fire engines to Beverly Hills if Watts is on fire!
  • CAPISCE Tom 2012/04/05 04:22:39
    Really I'm Italian, guess what, the Mafia is Italian and I think if the cops are looking for Mafia members it's probably smart to start with Italians, not too many people from Sweden in the Mafia
  • Tom CAPISCE 2012/04/05 05:45:39
    That's BS, you have the Russiam Mafia, the Black mafia, the Asian mafia, the Hispanic mafia. Let's just go after Italians, while the rest go unchallenged! PROFILING!... just sick!

    It would be absolutely WRONG to stereotype Italian citizens based on the actions of a minority of their community.

    It's something the matter with you, and I can't help you
  • marylou5 CAPISCE 2012/04/05 05:53:09
    :-) Thank you!

    Not all profiling is based on ethnicity. Profiling actually reduces crime. Israel profiles all the time for their Airline Industry. EL AL is the safest airline in the world.
  • Tom Thor Am... 2012/04/04 16:03:00
    It works no better than any other security, in any other country.
  • Thor Am... Tom 2012/04/04 16:18:12

    You are deluded.

    As a target for many decades, El Al employs stringent security procedures, both on the ground and on board its aircraft. These effective, though sometimes controversial, procedures have won El Al's security reputation. In 2008, the airline was named by Global Traveler magazine as the world's most secure airline.

    Some critics of El Al allege that its security checks on passengers include "extreme" racial profiling and have argued that such profiling is degrading to those subject to such screening.

    The airline was also criticized by the Hungarian courts for refusing to search luggage with the passenger present, acting against Hungarian domestic laws stipulating that only authorized officials are able to undertake such searches. A civil case was brought to the Supreme Court of Israel on 19 March 2008 alleging that El Al's practice of ethnic profiling singles out Arabs for tougher treatment.
  • Tom Thor Am... 2012/04/05 04:18:53
    " you are deluded," if you think it's ok to miss treat a whole group of people because you (think) one of them (might) do something wrong!
