  •  There is the joke about "DWB" on the interstate (0+ / 0-)

    or "Driving while Black" but several acquaintances with late model high end cars have found themselves stopped for speeding when they are sure they were not or else for brake lights that suddenly start working again.
    I have also questioned acquaintances who are professional law enforcement who see nothing wrong with profiling because race is a component if you are trying to identify which of each one hundred cars is most likely to be a drug delivery.
    However, the problem arises that while law enforcement people argue with me that a higher percentage of black males stopped for traffic will be conveying contraband,  they do not recognize that almost all black males stopped for traffic checks will not be conveying contraband.
    It is a matter of how your world view approaches the problem.
