It's not racial profiling if he's driving a tinted car and making an illegal u-turn. It's called traffic violation. He was driving a car with tinted windows so the police didn't he know who he was until they could see him.

Exactly. I also detest racial profiling, and want it punished. But my question is: Just what constitutes racial profiling? Too many blacks, too many Jews, and other minorities start screaming "discrimination!" the moment anyone points out anything wrong done by them. And then they hide behind a battery of rubbish cliches like offensive, insensitive, divisive.....

If it's a blatant and clear-cut race of racial singling out, yes. Punish it severely. Like the story of the boy who cried wolf, such persons cheapen the meaning of injustice. Then when the real thing happens decent people are so fed up that they refuse to listen.

In Trayvon's case my only real anger is that the Sanford authorities waited several weeks to do their job. I suspect favoritism, and possibly a tinge of racism. The NAACP should use the city using the 14th Amendment. However, I am just as inclined to believe that Zimmeman acted in self-defense as believe that Trayvon was stalked. Many of these young black males really are thugs and prowlers..... I don't know what moral character Trayvon had. And if anyone wants to call me a racist for being so blunt, they can go drown themselves in the Hudson River.
