White Boy getting profiled

Oprah and all the "racial profiling" nutjobs should be all over this.

"You know, the first thing that happened to me at the hotel was I got escorted out," Jase said. "I think it was a facial profiling deal. ... I asked where the bathroom was and he said, 'Right this way sir.' He was very nice. We walked outside, he pointed down the road and said, 'Good luck. Have a good day.'"

"So I circled back around and my wife said, 'What happened?' And I said, 'I got kicked out,'" he added. "He just didn't know, and that's fine."

They apparently decided to remain at the hotel despite the misunderstanding.

White people can't be profiled. This article is a lie.

I agree. But people wouldn't be as understanding if this were a black dude. It would be a media sh!tstorm.

It is bullsh!t. This dude was profiled. No one seems to care about this instance, while Oprah blows her sh!t out of proportion.

He wasn't kicked out because he's white.

He was kicked out because he looks like shlt.

Maybe Oprah wasn't denied a purse because she was black? The clerk said it wasn't racist. Perhaps the clerk was profiling her wealth instead?

Oprah claimed racism immediately. I don't think profiling is the same as racism, but somehow they are connected when it is black and they are separate when it is white. You can't see that?

If Oprah walked into that store looking like a Duck Douche, you might have a point.

When were you profiled because you're white?

My Ride: Is in a salvage yard
My brother used to live in a very poor ghetto neighborhood. He got pulled over all the time because he's white and didn't belong in that area. One time the cop actually told him that they pull whites over in this neighborhood because they are usually only there for drugs. Cool story...I know.

Some regular people in the south can be mistaken for NYC hobos, it happens. Plus the idea of a public restrooms in NY are kind of like almost non existent. You better do some scouting if you're going to venture away from a secured toilet.


http://www.nyrestroom.com/ here's a site dedicated to the cause. Now if more people used the rating system it'd be off the chain.
