Even Jesse Jackson said a few years ago, “There is nothing more painful to me … than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery, then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved.”

Young black males commit crime way out of proportion to their numbers. Taking that into account when you’re out in the street is not irrational, it’s street-smart. It’s not profiling, it’s probability.

    yes it is and lately i have been watching my back more.because lately where i live a small store got robbed by a black man 3 times in 6 weeks and they have not caught the guy yet.i admit i don’t trust black men much.but it’s because some act creepy,disrespectful and some have grabbed my ass etc.i have never had a white man come up to me and touch my ass.

    I am black and a black guy robbed me on a train. Every time I see a suspecting Black guy, I will avoid him. Most of us Blacks need to get it together and stop acting like niggas.

    The idea that as a white person I have never been followed in a store is racist. it has happened to myself and friends. Most often depending on how i am dressed.
