St. Louis History in Black and White: From Dred Scott to Barack Obama

 

Racial Profiling: 2010

Many African Americans all over the country are concerned about racial profiling. Missouri and St. Louis are no exception. Statistics show that minorities, especially blacks, are stopped by police in dramatic disproportion to their percentage of the population. There are many safeguards in place in Missouri designed to prohibit profiling. However, it still happens, and when it does, it drives a wedge between the African American and law enforcement communities. David Harris is the author of Profiles in Injustice which focuses on profiling. He met to discuss the issue with Redditt Hudson of the American Civil Liberties Union of Eastern Missouri, and Rick Rosenfeld, Professor of Criminology and Criminal Justice at the University of Missouri-St. Louis.
