Neighborhood Profiling


About 3 weeks ago I posted that I noticed a young man in my neighborhood that I didn’t recognize, was acting strange [by being in places that people don’t normally hang out] and just didn’t seem quite right.

On our community page this afternoon there are reports of two robberies, during the day, where the suspects are young white men who were seen to be smoking.

Two things are clear:

  1. I am scary right.
  2. Profiling is a very Very powerful tool that society uses to enforce acceptable norms.
