    In a world where we are supposed to treat everyone the same, some people sure love to constantly focus on our differences.

    Is it not possible to recognize differences among people groups and still treat everyone equally?

    So it's OK for me to recognize that Hispanics are more likely to steal my car, it's just not OK for me to treat them differently because of it?

    That's exactly what I'm saying. It is a fact that Hispanics are more likely to commit criminal offenses. It would be wrong to treat us differently than non-Hispanics because it would lead to injustice.

    No, it would be common sense to guard yourself and your possessions more closely when you come into contact with Hispanics.

    You've just proven my point, Paul, racial profiling works.

    Profiling against Hispanics isn't racial profiling. You can't tell if someone is Hispanic by looking at them.

    I can tell by looking. I can smell them from a mile as well.

    What do Hispanics looks like? :laugh:

    You're racist against Hispanics who don't meet your preconceived racial notions of being Hispanic.
