If a white person is stranded in a predominately black neighborhood and knocks on the door for assistance and is shot dead is that racial profiling too? Or does racial profiling only apply to blacks?

No White person is going to shoot anyone on their doorstep asking for help. There's more to this. The only racial profiling going on in Detroit is by Blacks against Whites.

1. Wasn't recently a football player shot at the door asking for help after a car accident? Got killed!
2. Research shows in USA the first thing noticed about a person is his/her face color. Not the smile. Nor the eyes.

Someone should have profiled Obozo and he;s still be in the jungle.

This example you're using; does it have any basis in reality? Presumably no. But to answer your question, I would say yes. Your hypothetical scenario would also be an example of racial profiling (and--let us not forget--murder). It could be argued that all generalizations and assumptions that are based entirely on race/ethnicity are forms of racial profiling and stereotyping. The more pressing issue is whether or not Caucasians and African-Americans (as well as people from other ethnic backgrounds) in the US are subjected to racial profiling at equal rates.
