An eye-opening, unapologetic explanation of what "racial profiling" is in modern-day America: systematic targeting of communities and placing of suspicion on populations, on the basis of not only ethnicity but also certain places that are linked to the social identity of that group. • Offers a novel framework for understanding the problem of racial profiling that explains how profiling actually involves the intersection of race and space • Provides concrete solutions in the form of a civil rights restoration act that addresses the problem of "racial profiling" through a set of innovative community controls on the deployment and power of police • Constitutes essential reading for students, lawyers, journalists, and teachers interested in issues of race and ethnicity as well as general readers wanting to learn about racial profiling in American society

Decisionmakers can be anywhere they wish to be because computerization and telecommunications allow people to be every where at once," Fisher said.
