Hispanic professional society & diversity job fairs at NSHP.org

Is everything about race? Is there a difference between profiling to keep communities safe and profiling due to hatred?

Below are some intersesting points in the article. I have pasted the link to the full article as well.


"TENAHA, Texas—You can drive into this dusty fleck of a town near the Texas-Louisiana border if you're African-American, but you might not be able to drive out of it—at least not with your car, your cash, your jewelry or other valuables.

That's because the police here allegedly have found a way to strip motorists, many of them black, of their property without ever charging them with a crime. Instead they offer out-of-towners a grim choice: voluntarily sign over your belongings to the town, or face felony charges of money laundering or other serious crimes.

The property seizures are not just happening in Tenaha. In southern parts of Texas near the Mexican border, for example, Hispanics allege that they are being singled out."

Good post. I read the article and found the number of search and seizures to be crazy. But the most interesting is the 40 out of 147 people contacted were Black. Racial stereotyping continues to be a factor in many small towns across the US. Amazing.
