Blacks make up 15 % of the Country.......... and 55 % of America's incarcerated. This proves beyond a shadow of doubt, that there is more than a modicum of value in racial profiling.

To answer the OP's queston, ultimately there is no value in it. If we truly did racial profiling in this country, then the Boston bombing, Oklahoma city bombing, and some other incidents possibly wouldn't have happened. Without a doubt there is racial profiling going on every hour on the hour by many cops and others. But most of the minorities who are in prison actually committed the crime. Now going back to incidents such as the Boston bombing, etc etc., these same criminals who committed haneous crimes were all considered white yet mentally ill vs. a black man shooting and murdering someone is deemed to be just that...a criminal and monster. Racial profiling I say ultimately has little value because it didn't stop the Boston bombing, 911, and other incidents. All while focusing more on one group profiling them, you often times miss another group who's committing a vile act.

Profiling is like stereotyping. They both exist because they are based on statistically high occurrances with the targeted groups. That doesn't mean that people outside the targeted group won't exhibit the same observable trait, it merely means that if you are looking for a specific trait, In this case, incarcerated liberal @ssed nut jobs,
you're more likely to find it within the profiled or stereotyped group.
Example:
Not all Muslims are terrorists, but most terrorists are Muslim. Therefore if you are looking for terrorists, it makes sense to watch Muslims more closely than 85 year old grandmothers, or 3 year old one legged kids in wheelchairs.

As Einstein pointed out, reality depends on your frame of reference.

So how many Muslims have you asked "Who are the terrorists?" and why?

In addition, Einstein may have been pointing out that what you (greymousie) deem as reality may be flawed because of your "belief in liberalism" being so overly non-factual.

By the way, Your question is asinine, immaterial and irrelevent. Try again.

Dodging my question, eh?

If you were as skilled as a Congresscritter, you would have deflected the question onto a hot button topic.

But since you didn't, you have some work to do for your opinion to be as respectable as Congress.

But the liberal side in me is optimistic! You can do it!

Amy, Is it true that you once worked for 'Mr. Tao's Rice Shrimp and other Things"?

Yes I did.

Doing what?

You don't wanna know.

Amy, did Mr. Tao have a collection truck and nets with long handles?

Yes he did, He would drive up and down the streets, collecting stray cats, you know, grey mousers. Angora's and Persians were at the top of the list.

Why?

After the cats was dressed and skun out, the Persians were sewn together and made into beautiful rugs.

What about the Angoras?

Baby Angoras were prized for making little house slippers for children. With the 2 little ears sticking up in front and the little tail in back, they were adored by the children.

And what about the, well, you know ....Plain Grey Mousers?

Mongolian Beef. Bwaaaaaaaa
