Racial Profiling Quotes By Ta-Nehisi Coates

But all our phrasing - race relations, racial chasm, racial justice, racial profiling, white privilege, even white supremacy - serves to obscure that racism is a visceral experience, that it dislodges brains, blocks airways, rips muscle, extracts organs, cracks bones, breaks teeth. You must never look away from this. You must always remember that the sociology, the history, the economics, the graphs, the charts, the regressions all land, with great violence, upon the body. — Ta-Nehisi Coates

Racial Profiling Quotes By Nicholas A. Christakis

Racial Profiling Quotes By C. JoyBell C.

I am not a little bit of many things; but I am the sufficient representation of many things. I am not an incompletion of all these races; but I am a masterpiece of the prolific.

Racial Profiling Quotes By Benjamin Todd Jealous

Racial profiling punishes innocent individuals for the past actions of those who look and sound like them.

The problem is, some officers put more stock in their title instead of their duty. Yes, your job title is "police." But your duty is to protect and serve. Start there. — Janelle Gray

Racial Profiling Quotes By Bryan Stevenson

When I replayed the whole incident in my mind, what bothered me most was the moment when the officer drew his weapon and I thought about running. I was a twenty-eight-year-old lawyer who had worked on police misconduct cases. I had the judgment to speak calmly to the officer when he threatened to shoot me. When I thought about what I would have done when I was sixteen years old or nineteen or even twenty-four, I was scared to realize that I might have run. The more I thought about it, the more concerned I became about all the young black boys and men in that neighborhood. Did they know not to run? — Bryan Stevenson

Racial Profiling Quotes By Charles Barron

Mayor De Blasio's appointment of Bill Bratton as police commissioner is the height of hypocrisy.

A new progressive mayor? I think not! — Charles Barron

Look at airport security now. What started out as definite racial profiling is now where the computer picks a name. That's why you get a seven-month-old getting a pat down. [Imitates a security officer.] "Check the diapers. They're full." — Robin Williams
