    I get pulled over at least once a year for driving while white in my predominately black, drug-infested neighborhood. I've been frisked numerous times, my car's contents rifled through. I've been told by a cop w/ my driver's license in his hand, in front of my house, that I did not live at this address.
    and while some of them are complete idiots, I still consider them to be just doing their jobs.

      Uh, they think you're in the neighborhood to buy drugs. What other reason would a white person have for coming to our side of town?

      Sorry to say you're being profiled. Be thankful this happens once a year and not once a month. That's when your attitude changes.

      -7.38, -5.23 One day we ALL will know the truth about the 2000 presidential election. God help us all.

        actually it happens every time they rotate in a new crop of cops to the neighborhood.
        do you think it makes sense for them to racially profile me?
        I do, to a certain extant. I just wish the outgoing cops would tell the incoming cops about the crazy white lady that lives here.
