Why, then, do so many in the black community believe Trayvon was profiled and murdered. This profiling as a negative bs drives me up a wall. You see something out of place, someone who looks suspicious you take appropriate action; so what. You see a black punk with a hoodie who seems to be up to something, you assume the worst. Why? because the assumption is based on observation and fact. George Zimmerman absolutely "profiled" Martin, a black kid wearing a hoodie, out at night walking in the rain. Why? because we all see so many images of black kids wearing hoodies committing crimes. So called profiling is how you avoid danger, prevent crime, apprehend criminals, get over it.
