Saturdays with Andre - Racial Profiling: If I had a hammer
Saturday, November 3, 2012 from 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM (CDT)
RACIAL PROFILING: IF I HAD A HAMMER
When we hear the term Racial Profiling we think of a gun toting racist police officer who is out to destroy the lives of brown and black men.
The fact of the matter is that racial profiling is a basic human primordial thing that we all do.
It is also good police work, however it is problematic when it becomes the only tool we use to fight crime.
We will examine why we create stereo-types, bias and how they serve us as well as what to do
then they are no longer helping us achieve our goals or our goals have changed.
