racial profiling - Lazy and idiotic

Racial profiling - we see it a lot here as well.
"As police officers accused of abusing people of color continue to be routinely acquitted, as the federal government heightens airport security checks of passengers from 14 mostly Muslim nations, and as Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials and local sheriffs continue to unfairly target and inhumanely treat dark-skinned immigrants, it’s clear that racial and religious profiling continues to be standard operating procedure."
Time to start a conversation about racial profiling

The thing is, it is lazy as well as offensive. The idiocy of the logic brings tears to the eyes.
