Exploring Racial Profiling

By Larry Elder

“Black Man Walking,” read the headline of an article I just read in a local weekly newspaper. The author lives in an affluent, predominately white area, and in the article he complained that when he goes for a walk, he notices whites crossing the street, presumably to avoid him. It happens so many times that the black guy, in order to “strike first,” walks across the street when he sees whites approaching. This way, he beats ’em to the punch, let’s them know how it feels. The writer made no mention of the disproportionate amount of crime committed by black men, a fact that undoubtedly plays into the minds of the “racist” whites who cross the street when they see him. Even Rev. Jesse Jackson once said, “I hate to admit it, but I have reached a stage in my life that if I am walking down a dark street late at night and I see that the person behind me is white, I subconsciously feel relieved.”
