I think opponents of 'racial profiling' would agree with the definition: the unjustified use of race as a consideration in profiling suspects The question remains, of course, what would justify the use of race. When searching for an individual (such as the man who just robbed a liquor store), police always ask for a description. The...

  • Disadvantage To Preferential Treatment
    1,449 words

    430 words
    In the movie Gattaca the main character Anton was discriminated against because of his gene makeup. Anton never even had a chance in the society in Gattaca because the potential employees of companies were not tested on their skills or knowledge but on their physical and mental possibilities. The same society also used derogatory terms for people like Anton. Just because his parents decided that he would come into the world naturally instead of through gene therapy or alteration. Terms like 'fai...
