ABSTRACT
The article presents an argument against racial profiling in law enforcement in the U.S. It is suggested that the practice is discriminatory, violates civil rights and does not achieve much in the apprehension of criminals. The U.S. Congress is criticized for its failure to enact legislative measures that would categorically ban the practice. The article also asserts that profiling is rooted in centuries of discrimination and is based on stereotypes.
