Racial Profiling

Racial Profiling

DISCLAIMER: I do not endorse the You Tube Channel for this video. This You Tube channel promotes pseudo-science as evidence to create division and suggest that race is biological when it is not.  All human beings are approximately 99.9% identical with only .01% of the genome attributed to differences which include facial features and skin tones. being  In fact, race is a social construct used to justify prejudice, and the subjugation and enslavement of others.
