To STOP Racial Profiling We need to START Doing This

What I am about to suggest is not the cure that will end racial profiling but I believe it can be a step in the right direction.

To stop racial profiling the media (in all forms) needs to STOP posting pictures of the people who do bad stuff UNLESS the picture is necessary to capture the person who did the bad deed.

What people of color need is a better PR agent because the media is 
doing them no favors by always posting pictures when people of color do bad things

If you eliminate the pictures of the people who do bad things you stop poisoning the minds of people that all the bad stuff is done by people of a certain colored skin. This is important because the subconscious mind does not work logically it works by association. If people constantly see pictures of people of a certain skin color associated with doing bad things immediately the subconscious mind will conclude that all people of certain skin color do bad things which we know is not true. 

In addition, posting pictures of people who do bad things heavily influences the subconscious mind of young children. 

Once children of color see enough pictures of people of the same skin color associated with doing bad things their subconscious mind will conclude that they will probably do bad things too. 

As I said before,  the subconscious mind is not rational in its thinking because it thinks based on associating the pictures we feed it to the event reported along with the emotions we feel when we looks at the pictures related to the event.

“Whatever we plant in our subconscious mind and nourish with repetition and emotion will one day become a reality.” Earl Nightingale

“Our subconscious minds have no sense of humor, play no jokes and cannot tell the difference between reality and an imagined thought or image. What we continually think about eventually will manifest in our lives.” Robert Collier
