Commentary a disgusting, racist rant

Robert Woolley’s commentary (“Profiles in suspicion, ” July 19, Xpress) is a disgusting, racist rant from someone whose worldview is clearly very deeply steeped in white supremacy — a fact of which he seems incomprehensibly oblivious.

Woolley seems to have no understanding of the ways the criminal justice system, the police and the prison-industrial complex target people of color, resulting in shockingly disproportionate rates of arrest and incarceration.

Mr. Woolley, do yourself and us all a favor and brush up on your Sociology 101. Or, better, please leave town. If not, though, I do at least appreciate you sharing your thoughts with us: we white folks now know that we should feel free to target you and your home for break-ins and burglaries, free of any suspicion on your part.
