Racial profiling is a serious problem for many of today's teens. This volume explains what racial profiling is, who is likely to be targeted, and how to deal with the police if you are singled out. Readers will learn about the racial bias in the American justice and prison systems, as well as how to stay out of the school-to-prison pipeline. They will learn healthy ways to deal with the hurt and anger a racial profiling incident can cause. Concrete steps teens can take to combat racial profiling, from taking part in protests to forming antiracism clubs, are also suggested.
