The truth about blacks and racial profiling

Question of the Day:

You’re black. Or Latino. Or a liberal white person. In your mind everyone should be treated as an individual. But you’ve seen the news stories about purse snatchings and murders, and you find that you actually racially profile young black males when you see them walking down the street in hoodies, jeans and Timberlands.  What, if anything, can we do as a whole to overcome the negative media portrayals of young black males that cause us to react this way?
