  • New Obama racial profiling guidelines: Do they actually do anything?

    http://www.kansascity.com/news/gover...le4351965.html

    Not only are these not binding on non-federal law enforcement, but aren't there already policies against racial profiling just about everywhere (other than the exceptions mentioned in the article)?
    "I am not angered that the Moral Majority boys campaign against abortion. I am angry when the same men who say, "Save OUR children" bellow "Build more and bigger bombers." That's right! Blast the children in other nations into eternity, or limbless misery as they lay crippled from "OUR" bombers! This does not jell." - Leonard Ravenhill

    Yeah, my favorite part from the article you cited was "The new protocols allow for significant exemptions, including for Homeland Security officials who screen passengers at airports and do inspections at the border."

    Why can Homeland Security officials profile, if profiling doesn't work?
    "Neighbor, how long has it been since you’ve had a big, thick, steaming bowl of Wolf Brand Chili?”

      Because profiling works, Obama's just pandering to his black base since many of them feel (accurately) he hasn't done anything for them.
      "As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths." Isaiah 3:12

      There is no such thing as innocence, only degrees of guilt.

        It looks like political grand-standing to me. I don't see how it changes anything at all. Sometimes politicians just want to be seen doing something...so, I guess they're doing something.
        "If you believe, take the first step, it leads to Jesus Christ. If you don't believe, take the first step all the same, for you are bidden to take it. No one wants to know about your faith or unbelief, your orders are to perform the act of obedience on the spot. Then you will find yourself in the situation where faith becomes possible and where faith exists in the true sense of the word." - Dietrich Bonhoeffer, The Cost of Discipleship

          He seems to be governing on this one the same way he governed on the immigration bill-speeches entirely for show, no actual action taken except a 'do-whatever' to the permanent civil service people in charge. It's rather refreshing to see the illusion of government so ineptly yet confidently demonstrated.
