Teri HarrellFinal exam.1.Hellman disagrees with racial profiling because of its roots in this country. Racial profiling is asignificant concern because of the many innocent people harassed and killed every year becauseof racial profiling. Hellman's first problem with racial profiling is race has social significance. Asocially charged issue, such as race, can be made as a casual connection. For example, theprominent stigma is that blacks are violent and are disposed to be criminals. Black men seenrunning in a neighborhood can suggest that he must have committed a crime and needs to bestopped (racially profiled). Or Black people live in poverty, so when you see a black person, morespecifically black men with nicer things, the stereotype is that they probably stole it or sell drugs.This is morally unjustifiable thinking because that person's morals and behavior have beendiminished only because of the color of their skin, reducing them to nothing but a physicalfeature that is grossly immoral. Secondly, the major problem comes from who's doing theprofiling. When governments and agents do the profiling, it takes away the equality of privatecitizens. Government & agents all have the power to change the standing of individuals in thatracial category from one of equality to a civil Society of any Inequality, which is a completedisturbance to human rights and equality which is morally intolerable. Hellman believes profilingcan be beneficial without racism. She believes that we should sacrifice some levels of privacy toensure security and equality. Stop, and frisk is OK with her if it's indiscriminate. That means law
