ABSTRACT
The article presents an argument in favor of racial profiling in law enforcement in the U.S. It is suggested that the law enforcement and security agency practice plays an important role in U.S. national security. It is noted that race plays an important role in the experience of some U.S. citizens. The federal government has also trained its law enforcement personnel to identify suspects that fit specific profiles since the September 2001, terrorist attacks.
