Profile precedes judgment. People are not judged solely for the color of their skin or appearance. They are initially profiled based on their general appearance, demeanor, and conduct. This is a natural thing that occurs when you meet or see someone who you do not already know. The more experience you have the better you get at it. Personally, I reserve judgment until I get to know the content of the persons character. Judgment of Character takes a lot more experience. The purpose of profiling is to be the first line of defense in nature. It is necessary to profile as a determination of the level of threat the person may or may not be to your safety. Anyone who doesn’t do it is naive. Of course the location and other circumstance of the initial meeting plays a role in your assessment. This is necessary for survival in this world. Just look at how many die because they do not properly profile or judge the character of a person. If you don’t like your profile then it is up to you to change it. You can’t change the color of your skin but you can change the other variables, they are completely under your control and jurisdiction. If you can’t handle being profiled then it is your problem, not mine. I do it to anyone I meet for the first time. If you say you don’t, you are probably lying or stupid.–Gunny Barton, Ret.
