Racial Profiling sends the message that people are being “judged by the color of their skin and harms the criminal justice system by eviscerating the trust that is necessary if law enforcement is to effectively protect our communities.”(Fact Sheet) Racial Profiling addresses people directly based off of the color of their skin. This is an unethical action, this because it is unfair, injustice, shows inequality and causes corruption due to that. Racial profiling is based off of the assumption that “...any particular individual of one race or ethnicity is more likely to engage in misconduct than any particular individual of other races or ethnicities.”(Fact Sheet). Racial Profiling separates people by color, race or ethnicity, like discrimination. Within this discrimination, they are basically say that one kind is more likely to do one thing then another.

Racial Profiling is a criteria police departments use when finding suspects. In the article “Not Race Alone”it states, “ They are using crime data to identify possible suspects. Ethnicity is just one of many criteria they consider” (Dutta 1). This quotation explains that Police departments use racial profiling as a consideration. It is essential to use racial profiling when looking for possible suspects especially in the police department.
Police brutality must be stopped so that police do not forget who they are serving not themselves, but the public. This means that even the criminals, who are a part of the public, have certain rights, particularly, civil rights. Police brutality causes a major concern in America. These racial prejudices are
The purpose of the “Black or Blue: Racial Profiling and Representative Bureaucracy” article was to examine the relationship between the passive and active representation of the race in the police department, particularly in the policy area of racial profiling. The authors, Wilkins and Williams, analyzed 168,901 data collected from the vehicle stops recorded by the San Diego Police Department in the months of 2000 to measure the racial disparity among officer’s divisions. There were eight divisions: North, Northeast, East, Southeast, Central, West, South, and Mid-City. The question lies, does organizational socialization strip the racial identity of police officers, changing them from “black and blue” to simply “blue” and limiting their provision
Earlier work by Gelman et al. (2007) presented concern that the arrest outcome of “hit rate analysis” may be an issue. They stated that a perfect outcome of the analysis would be a measure of officer productivity which the officer aims to maximise, this objective is impartial to racially bias behaviour and cannot be influenced by police officer bias of black individuals. The arrest outcome may not be impartial to officer bias because arrests are subject to the police officers decision and thus could be subject to racial bias. This matter of interest could invalidate “hit rate analysis”.
Individual racism is a practice that reinforces inferiorization based on the beliefs, attitude, and actions of individuals. Cultural racism is the belief of superiority of cultural heritage and exists when there is a widespread acceptance of stereotypes concerning different ethnic or racial groups.

Racial profiling also is unethical and can raise racial tensions, it is unethical because it targets specific groups, while this may help narrow down a suspect pool, it also can target people who have committed no crime at all. Racial profiling can raise racial tensions in areas where racial profiling is most prevalent by law enforcement. Animosities tend to run high which results in those most likely to be profiled against won’t cooperate with law enforcement when necessary even if they have not committed any
Why is police brutality against blacks a re- occurring problem in America? When you think of police brutality the first thing that comes to my mind is a police officer mistreating someone whether that’s physically or verbally. To really begin to understand police brutality we need to first look at the causes. My purport is that police brutality has occurred because of the lack of responsibility and consciousness, but through community fostered groups and organizations we can educate and get people actively involved. The History of Police Brutality This article examines racism and prejudice of the 1800s and police brutality from the mid-1900s to today.
