Americans should embrace racial profiling

It’s not just Donald Trump’s election, Brexit and the anti-establishment wave sweeping the West. It’s that when even a mainstream media outlet opines approvingly on “racial profiling,” you know change is afoot.

Writing at Bloomberg, Leonid Bershidsky explains that New Year’s Eve in Cologne saw no repeat of the 500 sexual assaults committed in that city on Dec. 31, 2015. The reason is Germany’s “new policing model,” he said, which involves a sort of racial profiling.

It’s ethnic profiling of Arabs. (At least technically: The classification for Arabs is “Caucasian”). But call it what you will, the German police exhibited “some hard-nosed realism,” Bershidsky wrote, screening and detaining hundreds of North African men. The reason? The group commits a disproportionate amount of crime in Germany. Moreover, as Cologne police chief Juergen Mathies bluntly stated about the city’s 2015 New Year’s sexual attackers, “There were no gray-haired older men or blonde, young women there.”
