This is the topic I picked, so please make sure that the writer incorporates the main points I listed - The topic I am choosing to write my paper on will be on racial profiling in today’s society, and the effects it has on the communities as well as the individuals that experience this injustice. As we've seen countless times on the news, there have been instances where police have used deadly force against unarmed young black men because they assumed that they fit a certain description based on appearance. For this topic, I would like to touch on police racial profiling and the outcomes of these incidents, as well as why this practice is currently hurting the relationship between minority groups and law enforcement officers.
·The history of racial profiling in America from the early 1900s up until now.
·The treatment of minority groups from police officers in contrast to white people.
·Mistaken deaths or accidental killings of individuals of color at the hands of the police.
·The tension between minority groups and law enforcement, and the negative effects racial profiling has had on their relationship.
