President Obama recalls hearing a doorlock click as a car approached him walking down the street. Then he wrongly and nonrationally indicts those in the car. He’s not alone. Most blacks join him, and virtually 100% of progressives/liberals do as well. All are nonrational in doing so.
There’s a situation widely known as “guilty of driving while black”. That situation is example of what is generally called “racial profiling”, which has been outlawed in most states. Progressives/liberals have a concept of the world which has never and will never square with reality, but which they doggedly deem correct. They are undissuadable no matter the overwhelming evidence contradicting their preconceptions, no matter the dearth of history supporting.
Young black men comprise about 3% of America’s population and commit about 50% of all violent crimes. Locking the car doors or stopping a young black man driving is rational, prudent, and behavior to be appreciated, not indicted, not outlawed. The pedestrian being approached or driver being pulled over is by quick visual inspection between 16 and 17 times as likely to be a predator as anyone else encountered.
If you are a young and upstanding black man and suffer what is generally called “racial profiling”, or if you are President Obama and suffer your recollections, or if you are an older black man and, like the President, suffer those recollections, or if you are the mother of a young and upstanding black son, whom should you indict, whom should you blame, with whom should you be angry? I humbly suggest you direct your anger constructively at the masses of young black thugs who generate guilt by association.
