From the Paper:"Major problems exist in America; one of them is racial profiling. What is racial profiling? Why do people racial profile? Racial profiling has been happening for hundreds of years, all over the world. All people racial profile people of other ethnic groups. There are many instances in the book I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, by Maya Angelou. The character of Marguerite faces racial profiling many times every where she goes. This book took place in the 1940's and today it is just as bad. Police and Authorities have been caught racial profiling young people of certain races as criminals and automatic suspects.
