FBI Profiles Americans Illegally

Once upon a time, a long, long time ago there was an African American constitutional law professor who taught students that in America one respects the law. He opposed racial profiling of people due to race or religion or national origin. Well, once upon a time, three years ago this nice man became president of the United States and appointed a friend to become the Attorney General. In theory, the FBI falls under the jurisdiction of the Attorney General.

The American Civil Liberties Union has filed suit against Attorney General Eric Holder for allowing the FBI to racially profile Americans. The ACLU uncovered FBI documents which describe Muslim communities as “primitive, violent and supporters of terrorism.” There is no doubt Muslim Americans are being profiled by government agencies. As the ACLU put it: the “FBi is illegally and unconstitutionally targeting innocent Americans for investigation based upon their race, ethnicity, national origin, religion and political activities.”

Say, whatever happened to that constitutional law professor? Does anyone know what he now does?
