We all discriminate and profile on an ongoing basis, if we did not, then we would have to be morons and incapable of rational thought. Everything we do requires us to make a decision and therefore we must evaluate all possible inputs into the situation in order to arrive at the correct decision for our specific purpose. All things are never equal in any situation, therefore we, as rational human beings must look at all of the choices and evaluate, read discriminate, in order to have a well ordered life...

With all the input, we are forced to make generalizations and judge people by the group that belong to. This is wrong on any level when the judgment is based on skin color. Skin color has noting to do with character. Any decision made about any person that uses skin color as a factor is false. For skin color you can also substitute language, country of origin, culture, religion or sex.

So when most violent crime is committed by young men with black skin from an inner city hip hop culture.

And most terrorism is committed by young men with olive skin, who speak Farsi or Arabic, are Persian or Arab, from Iran or Saudi Arabia, are Sunni or Shia Muslim.

We're not supposed to notice!

Riiiiight!

The President is certainly against profiling. We can use his own words and actions to profile him. It is not a pretty picture. To the point that even if he is a citizen, he should be exiled to Kenya.
