The way I hear it, profiling has kept terrorists from setting foot on an EL AL Airlines flight since the 1960’s...........just sayin.
Walter Williams is a national treasure and an always welcomed breath of fresh air.
Profiling is an essential element in law enforcement.
I think profiling makes a lot of sense. You may occasionally miss the terrorist who dresses like a socialite, but it will be occasional.
This article should be required reading for all the morons who run our government.
Thank you, Prof. Williams, for stating the obvious in terms that even a politician can understand.
Past experience and observed normalcy is what allows us to operate throughout each day. We presume that light switches are up for on, yet we also know that a few light switches are 3-ways and may be up or down for on. We proceed with the expected, being correct almost always, yet we have the logic to adapt to the exception. Profiling is the same way.
People that don’t want to be profiled as thugs shouldn’t dress and act like thugs.
Good try but still not on target.
To reach a conclusion, one must sort through facts, make choices of available info. That is given a series of facts, one must discriminate between them to determine if acceptable or non acceptable, pertinent or not pertinent.
Black people hate discrimination as a process because it can make them come up short in the decision tree. Then it does the most unacceptable of all. It destroys the assumption that all blacks are equal. Discrimination allows treating a person with a hoodie differently from one not wearing a hoodie. It allows one to distinguish between a male with his underwear showing above a belt fastened below his genitals with a person fastening his belt around his waist.
Blacks wail and moan about discrimination because and only because, the process allows elimination that results is selection of a likely criminal and that criminal happens to be black.
Profiling is discrimination in a decision tree that is ordinary and necessary, especially when narrowing down the list of suspects.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
Love me some Walt Williams!
That's just a small example of how far this country has sunk into the abyss of "political correctness".
“Profiling”=Using your common sense.
CAN’T HAVE THAT, NOW—CAN WE??
Profiling is part and parcel of human nature. It is necessary for survival. Single women use it when dating and a father will use it when a male wants to date his daughter. Bankers use it when granting loans and employers use it when hiring. The examples can go on forever. Liberals don’t like it because it upsets their delusional world.
