Racist White Lady Has Lots of Minority Friends (Who Are Racists)S

Andrea Peyser, a cheap tabloid columnist who's paid to help stoke the regrettable latent xenophobia and racism that underlies our society, is having a great day: she's found a minority who's in favor of racial profiling. This proves everything!

"Profile your passengers, it's very important. I don't care about racial profiling. You know, sometimes it's good that we are racially profiled, because the God's honest truth is that 99 percent of the people that are robbing, stealing, killing these drivers are blacks and Hispanics," said [Fernando Mateo, president of the New York Federation of Taxi Drivers], who identifies himself as black and Hispanic.

Andrea then quotes a Muslim lady who favors profiling of Muslims and concludes, in a journalistic tone, "This is what potential targets of profiling have to say." Come now, Andrea. I know white people who think you're a disgrace, and women who think you're a disgrace, and journalists who think you're a disgrace. But I don't go making a big deal out of it.
