So I guess if you are black, and look like you are trying to steal a bike, the police are supposed to just assume you own the bike, and are using tools to remove the lock because......?
And if you are white, and look like you are trying to steal the bike, or you are hispanic, and look like you are trying to steal a bike, the police are also then supposed to assume you own the bike and are just breaking the lock because you don't have a key? No racial profiling there. So if anyone is breaking a lock on a bicycle, the police are never allowed to question it? Or perhaps they are only allowed to question beings that are not humanoid? If they are human, they belong to one race or another, that's a given.
Exactly when are police allowed to question a person who is doing something that looks to be an illegal act? Never? Never if he/she's black? Never if he/she's a minority? Apparently on the Harvard campus, that's exactly the standard. And if Obama has his way, that will be the standard across the entire US.
Now, that's not going to hurt me, because I live in a mixed race community that respects the law and by-and-large, obeys the law.
I wonder how that's going to play in places like Washington DC, a largely black area, where the only answer to protecting your property is to call the cops since the Washington DC officials have made self defense a crime. Maybe someone could invent glasses that prohibit the wearer from seeing melanin content in the skin. Then we could make all cops wear those. Their job may be a lot harder, but their livelyhood won't be subjected to the whims of Al Sharpton.
If I were a 911 operator in Cambridge MA, I'd tell whoever called in to report a crime that it probably wasn't really a crime, simply a misunderstanding, and hang up. There will be a lot fewer whining, crying, posturing black professors that way.
