25. Obviously you don't understand a damn thing. You're too busy pretending that racial
profiling doesn't exist.

That bank teller wouldn't have called the cops claiming a bank robbery for a man reaching for a cell phone if said man was white. I'd say you're pretending not to get it but frankly I suspect that would be giving you too much credit. Your agenda is obvious. You don't want to see any evidence of racial profiling because God forbid acknowledging it means you may actually have to do something about it instead of making noises pretending to give a damn.

It's the same reason why black men (and Latino men for that matter) are more likely to stopped and frisked. They're not given the benefit of the doubt that white men are given. As this ridiculous "bank robbery" has clearly illustrated.
