Thinking Clearly About Profiling

THERE IS NOTHING MORE PAINFUL FOR ME AT THIS STAGE IN MY LIFE THAN TO WALK DOWN THE STREET AND HEAR FOOTSTEPS AND START TO THINK ABOUT ROBBERY AND THEN LOOK AROUND AND SEE IT’S SOMEBODY WHITE AND FEEL RELIEVED. REVEREND JESSE JACKSON NY TIMES, 12-12-93

Profiling is a very unsavory activity, we are told. There are marches against it and laws against it. Let’s consider what profiling is, starting with the definition of three terms relevant to the discussion :

SNIP

Here are some observable facts: 1. Rapes are primarily committed by men. 2. Major terrorist attacks, worldwide, are primarily committed by young Muslim men. 3. NBA Basketball teams consist primarily of young black men. 4. Young black men are 7 times more likely to commit murder, and 8 times more likely to commit robbery than white men.

SNIP

These are not foolproof judgments, but they are not prejudiced judgments either. They are simply factual observations.

SNIP

The campaigns against racial profiling and “Islamophobia” are campaigns against reason. It is unfortunate, but perfectly logical, to have an increased fear of violence from young black men or Islamic Jihadists. We must be clear that those who observe the problem are not the cause of the problem.

SNIP

If Obama himself did some honest reflection he would see that doors have been unlocked for him for most of his life because he is black. At almost every point in his life it has been a huge advantage for him. This inexperienced Senator from Illinois was a viable Presidential candidate, not it spite of being black, but because he is black.

When blacks commit most of the murders, is it really “profiling”, or just acknowledging the truth?

As a White-Hispanic, I support profiling of people who look like me.

VERY good, cogent and rational article.

Which is why no one will ever see it.

In my limited existence,

I have had guns pulled on me,
Knives pulled on me,
And chased by muggers,
By an identical set of statistical associations

1) New Orleans
2) Men aged 16-25
3) Black race

I have become generally distrustful on all three
If all three conditions are met, I have eyes in the back of my head

I wish this was not true, but it is what it is.

Profiling is as natural as being able do identify music by composer....today’s profiling is just Political Correctness on Steroids...if you’re white you’re white, black, you’re black, tan, you’re tan and so on. About as stupid as having to show ID when voting...you need ID to drive a car, buy a plane ticket, buy liquor or borrow a book from a library...everyone knows the drill except the Race Pimps who make their living screaming at their people to STAY VICTIMS!

There is more than ample data to show the correlation between young men becoming criminals and ending up in jail and whether or not they were raised in a home with the father being married to the mother.

Before political correctness smothered the truth on the matter, the word “bastard” was meaningful. That is to say thousands of years of human experience told us that children who were born out of wedlock were more likely to be bad people. Now, “bastard” has been relegated to the name of movie characters, like “Fat Bastard”, and just an ill-tempered person.

What happens when 74% of black males are born into a home where the father is absent? We have a very high disproportion of young black men who commit violent crimes. By what “logic” of racial oppression or some other nonsense do blacks murder blacks far more often than whites murder whites? You might explain away a 10% difference, but a 7-fold difference?

Or how do you explain away the following, which was told to me by a relative without any real way to verify it:

>>
As for racism, its ugliest manifestation is in interracial crime, and especially interracial crimes of violence. Is Barack Obama aware that while white criminals choose black victims 3 percent of the time, black criminals choose white victims 45 percent of the time?

... black-on-white rapes are 100 times more common than the reverse, that black-on-white robberies were 139 times as common in the first three years of this decade as the reverse?
<<

We no longer can afford the luxury of allowing political correctness to suppress these truths. We have already lost enough youth to violent crime and it has cost us plenty in terms of blood, treasure and liberty.

Women profile all the time......for example, do I want to go on a date with someone who reeks of alcohol, wears a wife beater tee shirt, and combat boots? No.

Could I be fooled by someone in a Brooks Brother button down, sperrys and kahkis? Yes.

Having spent 57 years in Fun City, profiling -racial and otherwise- was a survival skill.

Ask any liberal how they feel about white Christian males and black conservatives if you want to get a real lesson about profiling.

"Affirmative action is profiling." csmusaret

Affirmative action is profiling.

Affirmative action is profiling.

Affirmative action is profiling!

This needs to be shouted from the rooftops every time "Profiling" is condemned!

For the article: These are not foolproof judgments, but they are not prejudiced judgments either

That's correct they are not pre-judiced, they are post-judical judgments.

They are judgements based on evidence already present to all of us.

Really good point.

Or how about if a white liberal’s daughter said she wanted to walk downtown Detroit or Harlem after dark...
