5. We all know that when you stop blacks in motor vehicles, odds are their licenses are suspended,
the registration is expired, the car is stolen (especially if it's new and expensive), they have warrants, missed child support payments, have a kilo or 2 of dope in their cars and lots of guns stuffed under the seats.

DWB was brought up


and we talked about profiling too


these kids in this day and age should not have to deal with it

9. No they shouldn't but if there is a bright side to any of it, at least they are aware of it...
and can be prepared.

Sad.

7. I am guessing that it is not "Down with Brown" or "Dazzle with Brilliance"
but that it is either Driving while Black or Dumb white Bitch

8. Racial profiling was getting some much-needed attention until 9/11...
...at which time most of 'Murka decided that profiling was a great idea.

Just disgusting. Like everything is these days.

10. Well now DWB is expanded to LWB (living while brown)
so now they have a larger portion of the population to profile.

Sick.

11. we also talked about when it is actually not profiling
such as when you go to an area strongly populated by a particular race, it is only natural that it will be a higher number of that race


I think the kids really understand


and we also talked about teens getting a bad rap like when they go to a store, the store keepers automatically suspect they might steal.

almost every student has had some kind of negative experience in a store black, hispanic and white

12. It's not just getting stopped by police, it's the treatment while being stopped
many of the young males I know, are pulled out of the car and laid down in the street. Then their cars are searched. For no reason, whites don't have that experience for the most part.

14. Driving while Black.
Sometimes more energetically enforced than DWI. And a much older practice, as well. Just another legacy of racism encouraged by the new racism.
