No, it's just fairly obvious when people are trying to address the issue or are trying to cover their actual racism. Recommending how to get the message out to communities that can best address it? Great. Whining about not being able to 'profile'? Good luck, kid.

My apologies Scott as I see I've confused you. I have no need to "whine about not being able to profile" as I do it all the time and so do you. My comments were more in regard to those that pretend as if they're somehow morally superior but wouldn't be caught dead in many parts of town. Know what I mean, kid?
