Thought you guys might enjoy this piece by Walter Williams, a dark complected fella.

Police Capt. Louis Renault, played by Claude Rains in the 1942 movie “Casablanca,” in the wake of the shooting of a Nazi officer, ordered his men to “round up the usual suspects.” Was Renault engaging in some sort of profiling? He may have been, but what is profiling? Let’s look at it.
We can think of profiling as a method to economize on information costs by using easily observed physical characteristics as a proxy or a guess for some other characteristic more difficult or costlier to observe. For example, say you seek to hire people to manually unload trucks containing heavy merchandise. I’m guessing that most would use sex as a proxy for strength and select men over the women. That can be called sex profiling. Of course, if you assumed that men and women have equal strength, you’d hire randomly.
You might say, “Profiling is unfair, and individuals should be judged individually!” Taken to the limit, such a position is ludicrous. Suppose police are trying to catch the criminal who just raped a woman in a city park. Would you want them to use sex profiling — i.e., just round up men — or should they round up everyone, regardless of sex? I’m betting that most people would view the latter as stupid. But there is a near equivalent in government. Ninety-six percent of the FBI’s list of most wanted terrorists are Muslim, and most terrorist attacks in the U.S. have been committed by young Muslim males. Despite this, the Transportation Security Administration people behave as if each person who seeks to board a plane is of equal danger. That’s why they search, frighten and inconvenience 5-year-olds and elderly people.
Some racial and ethnic groups have higher incidence of — and mortality from — various diseases than the national average. The Pima Indians of Arizona have the world’s highest diabetes rates. Black males have the highest incidence rate for prostate cancer in the United States. Black males are also 30 percent likelier to die from heart disease than white men. Laotian, Samoan and Vietnamese women have the highest cervical cancer rates in the United States.
Whether genetics, environment or some other factor accounts for the association between race and the incidence of certain diseases, it is undeniable that such an association exists. That means an easily observed physical characteristic, such as race or ethnicity, can be used as a proxy for a higher probability of the existence of some other, more difficult-to-observe characteristic, such as prostate cancer, coronary disease, diabetes or cervical cancer. Simply by knowing a patient’s race or ethnicity, a medical practitioner can be alert to and better customize a patient’s screening needs. I wonder how many people would seek action against a doctor for medical profiling if the doctor recognized the association between race and the higher probability of a disease.
In a number of cities, there have been complaints of racism because some taxicab drivers turn down black fares. By simply knowing that a driver refused a black passenger, we cannot make an unambiguous statement about whether the decision was motivated by racial preferences. As early as 1999, D.C.’s taxicab commissioner, Sandra Seegars, who is black, issued a safety advice statement urging the city’s mostly black cabbies to refuse to pick up “dangerous-looking” passengers. She described “dangerous-looking” as a “young black guy … with his … shirttail hanging down longer than his coat, baggy pants down below his underwear and unlaced tennis shoes.” Would anyone argue that black cabbies who turn down black fares are racists? A law-abiding black person denied a taxi is rightfully angered, but to whom should his anger be directed, at the driver who’s trying to protect his life or at the people who’ve instilled fear by robbing and assaulting cabbies?
By the way, God, unlike us mortals, wouldn’t have to do any kind of profiling, because he knows everything. We mortals, with our imperfections, must find substitutes for his omniscience.

Profiling works, and has kept us alive for millennia.

During some trial that just concluded, I forget which one, the gushing heads at Hysterical Ladies Network were talking about profiling and said the defendant was guilty of it. And that is wrong wrong wrong. Then the next sentence concerned the 6 lady jury that would decide the case and all heads agreed the ladies were picked because wimmens have more compassion and mothering instincts and are more pliant and easily swayed by the lawyers. But that ain't profiling, is it?

I'm at a loss here, trying to remember the convoluted logic the anti-profilers use. I remenber when it becane a big deal, the NJ hiway patrol noticed that about 90% of the drug runners they caught were Puerto Ricans, and started realky going after them, and their drug arrests went up significantly, then somebody decided this was some kind of racism.

Some authors state that African American serial killers are as prevalent, or more so, in proportion to the African American population. According to some sources, the percentage of serial killers who are African American is estimated to be between 13 and 22 percent.[70][71] Another study has shown that 16 percent of serial killers are African American, what author Maurice Godwin describes as a "sizeable portion".[72] Anthony Walsh writes, "While it is true that most serial killers are white males, white (Anglo) males are actually slightly underrepresented in the serial killer ranks in terms of their proportion of the general male population" and that "[w]hatever the true proportion of black serial killers in the United States is or has been, it is greater than the proportion of African Americans in the general population."[

yeah, i'd say 84% is almost always
But by population percentages, there are more black and less white serial killers. Still, the media and others always say there are no black ones. Untrue. And that wasted a bunch of time hunting for a loner white guy while the two black muslim serial killers were sniping all around DC.

while that was going on, i was taking a criminology class taught by a former fbi agent. black and homosexual were part of their profile.

and sure, by population %. but how about the actual number of just serial killers? that's right, whitey dominates!

Of course white dominates. When we set our minds to a task, we are unstoppable.

Too bad this guy believed the always white theory...

An ATF agent member of the task force revealed that Moose had ordered that officers who checked cars following each shooting were to wave cars by if the drivers were minorities or females and to search only cars with white male drivers behind the wheel. This despite several eyewitness accounts (never made public) of suspects in a dark sedan who were either black or Hispanic in appearance. Moose 'tossed' those reports implying they were bad witnesses. One Montgomery officer (who understandably wishes to remain nameless) says he knows that Moose personally was aware of the descriptions of Muhammad and Malvo as early as Oct. 21st the day before the last victim was killed.
By leaving Moose in charge, police were led on a wild goose chase looking for a white man driving a white van or truck. Members of the task force, presumably including the FBI, knew there were credible eyewitness reports to the contrary. Moose's timeline about what he and the FBI knew and when they knew it is contradicted by subsequent information.

The anti-profliing people are dangerously delusional. But I can guarantee even the most ardant "don't ever profile!" advocate would be looking over their shoulder and picking up the pace if some "unruly teens" started to follow them in a desolate parking garage or ATM booth. They'd never admit it though.

I think there are just as many black serial killers as there are white ones. Due to their incompetence, lack of forethought, serial criminality, and inability to keep their fucking ape mouths shut about how hard they are, they just get caught and stopped really quick before they can get much of a body count rolling.

They are generally more violent, tend to use easier means to accomplish the violence (gats yo) yet less competent at actually getting the job done than whites. For example, say a gang banger with an exceptionally long career manages to shoot half a dozen people, but only manages to kill one. Usually a 6 year old via a stray bullet caused by their racial inability to operate a handgun properly. There was the intent to kill five, but but being a genetic defective with an IQ of 70, they were unable to close the deal. They go back to their nest and brag to their homies about how tough they are, after managing to leave their fingerprints all over the 2o shell casings that they left behind. Being a multiple arrestee and well known by the authorities for being sack of shit, a quick trip through AFIS is just some fingerprint dust and scotch tape away.

Well that and typically serial killers tend to kill within their race... another reason it is prob under reported.
