Writer Justifies Racial Profiling

Steve Smith, The Times Leader, November 13, 2011

Recently, a case in Kingston brought up the subject of racial profiling. If you take into consideration that blacks commit more than half of the murders in this country, while comprising only 13 percent of the population, isn’t racial profiling justifiable?

Whites need to stop walking on eggshells when it comes to the issue of race and crime. We need to stand up and speak out against what is happening to our once-safe communities. Anti-white organizations such as the Anti-Defamation League, Southern Poverty Law Center and National Association for the Advancement of Colored People try to push their agendas and extort police, schools and businesses with their often- false claims of “racism.”

I, and a few other local activists, have stood up to these tactics and will continue to do so. Hopefully, more people will join us before it’s too late.
