Racial profiling is stereotyping people because of their race, ethnicity or religious backgrounds and targeting them for crimes. This paper argues that racial profiling is indeed part of a system used by the US police force. It provides several examples of why racial profiling does not 'work' and should be stopped.

From the Paper:

"Racial Profiling detracts police and other officials from real threats or problems and builds certain distrust between our police forces and our different minorities. African-Americans, Latinos, Asians, Native Americans and Arabs- and sometimes even whites can be targeted for this discrimination. Due to the recent terrorist attacks of 9/11 citizens and visitors of Middle Eastern and South Asian decent, or those of the Sikh or Muslim faiths, have become more frequent subjects of racial profiling over the last three years."
