Reverse Racial Profiling?

We are at a point in our history where the courts and the PC patrol have decided that everything is racial profiling. If a black man robs a bank and drives off in a red truck and a police officer pulls him over because he is a black man in a red truck, it is considered profiling. If the airport security folks stop a Middle Eastern male between the ages of 18 and 45 then it is considered profiling. A few years ago in Baltimore a woman was raped by a young black man. A leader in the police department put out a memo telling his officers to stop all black males in the area of the rape who fit the description of the rapist. He was relieved of his duties after all the outcry over profiling. Now there is this from the police investigating the Duke Lacrosse team rape allegations):

Investigators have collected DNA from 46 of the 47 team members. The team’s lone black member did not provide a sample because the dancer, who is black, said her attackers were white. A spokeswoman for the state attorney general’s office said Wednesday the analysis has not been completed.

I will be the first to admit that it makes no sense to take the DNA of the black man if the victim says her attackers were white just as I would be the first to admit it makes sense to stop the people described above and not others who do not fit the demographics. Since we always cry profiling when only a certain group is looked at, why have all the PC civil rights activists not condemned the act that took place at Duke? Why was it not racial profiling to only pick on the white guys? Since when have the civil libertarians suddenly started listening to the victim and made decisions based on logic rather than PC?

I guess we can now put to rest this idea that we need to stop white guys in the city when the victim says a black guy committed the crime. We can now leave little old ladies alone at airports and start looking at people who fit the description of those who have committed the crimes in the past.
