The problem is not that racial profiling exists, but the fact that, for the majority, it still works.
It's not just race, but ethnicity, income level, ammount of children, age, where they live, and a few other factors. Poor blacks tend to be
Democrats, by vote. Rich/middle class blacks tend to be republican, by vote, unless they are leaders in the black democratic movement. The latter is
even more likely Republican in the rural midwest; and the former more true in cities. Latinos vote by bloc more than any group, but are not
particularly loyal to any party. Theu are also the largest growing group. This is another reason why it's taken until this president for anyone to
really start flipping out about Mexican illegals. Louisiana democrats tend to be democrats in name only. Their political issues tend to be more
conservative in look.
We were taught this in a college Economics course, of all things. Ads are designed to reach that specific demographic, and it works...otherwise it
would be a waste of time.
You don't want to be a statistic, you do something about it and don't be normal.
