16 Sep 2004

See:

1. A staggering number of people in the United States are subjected to racial profiling:

-Approximately thirty-two million Americans, a number equivalent to the population of Canada, report they have already been victims of racial profiling.

- Approximately eighty-seven million Americans are at a high risk of being subjected to future racial profiling during their lifetime.

- Racial profiling directly affects Native Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanic Americans, African Americans, Arab Americans, Persian Americans, American Muslims, many immigrants and visitors, and, under certain circumstances, white Americans.

- Racial profiling happens to both women and men, affects all age groups, is used against people from all socio-economic backgrounds, and occurs in rural, suburban, and urban areas.

-Racial profiling of citizens and visitors of Middle Eastern and South Asian descent, and others who appear to be from these areas or members of the Muslim and Sikh faiths, has substantially increased since September 11, 2001.
