On being "racially profiled" Yes of course it happens. But does it happen as often as claimed? If you have the preconceived idea it will happen you can believe it happened when it did not or you can construe situations as being profiled when it fact it had nothing to do with race. For instance many black people say they are followed in retail stores because they are black. I am definitely not black and I have been followed in retail stores. Was it because I was white? or was it because I looked "shifty" OR because they had nothing else to do at the moment? Everything is not about race but with unfortunately many black people have been indoctrinated to see things through that lens.
