Racial and ethnic profiling of law enforcement has been a huge problem here in the United States for quite a while. Many individuals have been arrested based on their ethnicity and not because they have commit a criminal activity. Racial profiling has been an ongoing issue, especially among the minority and Latino’s community here in the United States. Law enforcement is constantly attacking these ethnic groups and have cause many individual to lose their lives. For example, Alton Sterling was killed by two officers at a local convenient store for allegedly selling CD’s, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Alton Sterling was a victim of racial and ethnic profiling because the store owner gave him permission to sell CD’s in in front of his store.
