Will NSA Loophole Fuel Federal Racial Profiling?

The US Justice Department intends to ban federal law enforcement profiling, according to a recent LA Times article. The new policy, will inhibit sexual orientation, religious, and racial profiling. However, national security officials and other administrators have lobbied to exclude national security investigations. This is paramount to inserting a loophole to the new federal ban.

It becomes a loophole because other intelligence agencies will have an opportunity to have claims investigated in the name of National Security. It is this type of reckless behavior that makes racial profiling prominent in our country. Since racial profiling continues to plague our country, we must devise different methods to eliminate racial profiling rather than depend on federal policies that include loopholes.

Racial profiling involves using a persons race or ethnicity by law enforcement as a key factor in deciding whether to stop them or arrest them. Racial profiling is prevalent in the US, Researchers report that across the country Blacks and Hispanics are more likely to be stopped and arrested by police when compared to Whites. Eliminating racial profiling will require that we look at the roots of racial profiling.

The real question has to be where does a law enforcement personnel learn racial profiling?

Every person that is active in law enforcement also sat in a classroom in some type of educational system. Every classroom has a teacher that is responsible for her/his students. And every teacher has a set of values that they deem acceptable and enforces those values in their classroom, whether purposeful or not. Since the majority of our teaching force is White female, the values of the White female become the standard for the school culture.

According to the Raccelerate Phenomenon, there is a great chasm created by the media between the White female and the Black male. In the media, whenever something that is perceived a negative between a White female and a Black male it is exasperated by the media. This has a great impact on the racism in our country as well as racial profiling.

These racial expectations begin in the classroom. These expectations are reinforced in our school culture which results in the overrepresentation of Blacks disciplined for violating schools rules. As these perspective persons become indoctrinated into our culture and become charged with media, law enforcement, businesses, ministry work, etc., they express the same racism in our society which results from the Raccelerate Phenomenon.

Racial profiling will continue to exist because the problem is not policy, but the problem is the racial profiling that exist in the classroom.

About Classroom Racism Exterminator

Racism is a menace and so we’ve been taught for ages which is the primary need for a diversity expert. However, even in this modern society of today where we see a lot of colored celebrities performing on stage with huge fan followings and of course an Afro-America President for the USA, we are still in a phase where racism exists in all its brutal glory and has been eating away at the society like a plague. Classrooms, are one of the most affected areas where color differences and racism exists to its extremes. Even after decades of progress and a lot of communal efforts at bridging the gaps between colored students, white students and teachers, it is sad to say that the disparities still exist and are just as pronounced today as they were back in the 1950s. Colored students, even in the likes of New York City, are attending under resourced schools or have been significantly isolated and made to be unequal in regular schools. Even if the teachers are well-intentioned, perpetuating the structural racism that has taken deep roots into the fabric of our education system is a tough task and make the need for a diversity expert imperative. Teachers need to recognize the biases that exist within the classroom and also take conscious measures to address them and their own biases of course. James Baldwin once said, “it is your very own responsibility to change this society, if you think of yourself as an educated person.” Dr. Derrick L. Campbell took this quote very effectively and straight to the heart and thus this Classroom Racism Exterminator happened. Classroom Racism Exterminator is an initiative that will teach you about your duty and moral obligation towards eliminating racism from the classrooms. This is where and how you will learn about what you need to do to produce a better society that is free of biases and disparities amongst the blacks and the whites. Because we understand how classroom biases and conversations about racism are difficult and how teachers and students almost avoid the topics altogether, we have put together a range of effective methods and products to help address the problem at hand and talk meaningfully to counter issues related to race and racism in the classroom. Diversity expert Dr. Campbell understands that it takes a lot of courage to talk about race and racism and that racial issues need to be viewed through a very critical lens that can understand and attend to the pertaining aspects of racism in the classroom. And therefore through this website we have made a conscious effort to eliminate racism from the classroom and make the educational system equal and beneficial for all. We know and we understand that there are no words that can actually describe how racism feels. There are cases and everybody tends to deal with it in their own manner. Some might lash out verbally or others might just withdraw into shells. Whatever the case, people don’t talk about it openly and teachers don’t really make a conscious effort at addressing the issue. We don’t really know if our children or if the youth is learning to be educated or become racists in their classroom. Our program is focused on helping children of color and regardless of their race, their full potential. We want every student to be able to recognize and reach their full potential so that they think of themselves as responsible citizens of their country and not regard themselves as worthless human beings. Here you will find motivational books and flash card games, all of which have been designed focusing on eliminating racism completely from our classrooms. The books and the games have been consciously designed keeping in mind the American society and educational system. It is a small effort on our and Dr. Campbell’s part to help this society become a better place to live in. A little about diversity expert Dr. Campbell Dr. Derrick L.
