Racial Profiling

House Rules
I respect you.
Your opinion counts, even if it's different form my own.
I'm ready and willing to share.
I will avoid shame and blame.
Let's keep a safe and civil space throughout the workshop
What is Racial Profiling?
The use of race or ethnicity as grounds for suspecting someone of having committed an offense

Probabilistic generalizations about group behavior or characteristics can be used to judge particular individuals.
Racial Profiling Tactic

Where Racial Profiling may be Prevalent in our Society
Hate crime
Gang Violence
War on Drugs
Terrorist Attacks

Ice Breaker
• What is your major?
• What is your racial identity?
• What are some stereotypes that you face in your own racial/ethnic group?
• Does the media play a role in people’s perceptions of racial/ethnic stereotypes? If so how?
Are there certain racial/ethnic groups that are commonly associated more with criminal activity then others? How are those stereotypes portrayed?

Example of Racial Profiling
Did anything stand out to you while watching the video?
What was your response when the sales associate suggested that 9 times out of 10 when there is a crime committed it mostly involves an African-American male?
What was your reaction to the customers that did not respond to the racial comments being made towards the African-American man?
What was your response when the couple from Europe was speaking out about the racial slurs made by the sales associate?
Which position would you take if you were to see another member of your racial group being subjected because of his/her race?
Do you anyone other than yourself that has experienced any similar racial bias?
