"white, black, asian, latino, mixed, etc. It gives no cop the right to stop and search. It does not equal probable cause."

Sure it does! The cop is looking for things out of place. A black guy in a white neighborhood or a white guy in a black neighborhood looks out of place. Neither has any likely legitimate business there. Neither likely wandered there by mistake. Chances are good that in either case someone is up to something. But then, I want to search muslim-looking people trying to board airplanes. Yes, you have the 'right' to be in any neighborhood, but that 'right' won't stop me from getting beaten up just for being a white guy in a black neighbohood and it won't prevent the cops from scrutinizing black people wandering through white neighborhoods. In a mixed neighborhood, things are different.There are rights and then there are responsibilities. And there is common sense as well. PC seldom allows the application of the latter, however.

A white guy in a black neighborhood or a black guy in a white neighborhood . . . or an asian guy in a white neighborhood, or a white guy in an asian neighborhood . . . constitutes probable cause, i.e., "information sufficient to warrant a prudent person's belief that the wanted individual had committed a crime (for an arrest warrant) or that evidence of a crime or contraband would be found in a search (for a search warrant)?"

You sure about that, or are you just being bombastic?

So I should have been arrested when I lived in a Black neighborhood? Or when I am driving through one? Your viewpoint is goofy at best.
