The average Black where I am from has a higher income than Blacks in Houston and most of the suburban and urban kids both dress in hip hop style clothes differing degrees of course. Hip hop clothing maybe is more mainstream looking than it was previously tho. Tattoos on your face and nuttiness like that of course is some hood stuff.
I said a few times I have no problems with profiling, not even racist profiling. Its always better to be comfortable and safe than not racist or whatever. Most case never end up in any interaction, so its no a big deal IMO. Many Blacks think certain kinds of whites are racist by appearance, mainly white conservative appearing males. Even professional Blacks who have a lot of experience with them, and shouldn't assume such.
Agreed on no one is %100 not racist. I can be very racist on occasion. Not hateful or anything tho.
Glad we agree.
The hip hop clothing thing is a non-fruitful diversion.
I think I can say that you, I and Pio would rightfully profile someone with a gang tattoo, who is acting suspiciously ( which should be defined, so let's say is acting like they are on drugs and being loud and boisterous bordering on being threatening ). Obviously this can be a black, white or brown person. I don't want to be around such an individual and I wouldn't want kids I know around them either.
Of course I can't speak for you or Pio but I would profile people like the above example.
