First, can you please find a quote from this thread where someone has said it was unlikely that it was profiling? I think most people would admit the possibility was there.Of course it is - which is why it is so ridiculous when posters say it was unlikely or doubtful that it was profiling. They don't know that it wasn't. Same goes for the other side: no one should say that it was profiling (With the exception of the OP. He was there, it happened to him. He has the absolute right to call it as he sees it.)...but to deny that it's a possibility is just ignorant. If your opinion is that it just doesn't happen you've got your head in the sand.
However, if the OP has the right to say it WAS profiling, everyone else has the right to say it WASN'T profiling. Basically what I get from the OP is he's a POC, so therefore, that's the ONLY reason the LEO would have asked him the question. While possible, I think the odds are against it.
And just to clarify, I fully believe racial profiling happens, probably every day, multiple times a day. But based solely on what the OP has posted, I'm not convinced this is profiling. However, I'm also not willing to say it wasn't.
