Oh yeah.

I'd rather then decide to question/frisk etc. a 30 something middle eastern or mexican than a 60 year old woman

And if the mexicans/middle eastern people cannot understand that then poopoo to them. Sorry if the lot gets put on all of them because of their criminal people but that is the way it should be. If they don't have anything to hide they shouldn't be worried

I'd understand it if all of a sudden the French were criminals here and they'd target me (even though I'm american my dad is french hence I would be in the crossfire) I have nothing to hide and for the wellbeing of his nation I would show them with EASE I am not a criminal and they can go along to the next french person

The only reason anyone is against racial profiling is because they themselves are racist and/or bigoted.

Isn't USA about equality and being treated fairly?

So, if you were walking down the street and police stop you, but let the other person (of a non-profiled color) walk by, and then the next stop they do the same thing to you and let the other person go by again... repeatedly.

Is that equal treatment?

What was rude? Oh, you mean because I disagree with you. Tough. I don't feel sorry for illegals and other criminals. I know lots of people, who happen to be members of our tribe, that have been stopped for driving while Indian so, there is no way that I am going to feel sorry for criminal illegals, the ones who you seem to love so much.

Do the people of your tribe enjoy that treatment? I can't imagine they do.

Er.. they're not stopping anybody without a reason. No "Your Papers Please" here.
OTOH, if there's been a bank robbery nearby, and they don't have a description of the robber(s), then, unless you're an old lady with a cane, you might get stopped.
If they do have a description, such as "white male", do you think they should waste their time stopping black females?

Political Correctness is another word for lack of common sense.

Mexicans think they have some right to do what they do and they do not and when they find out that they woke the Giant then they get all upset. Tough on them!!!!
