Heather MacDonald talked about her book Are Cops Racist?: How the War Against the Police Harms Black Americans, published by Ivan R. Dee. Ms. MacDonald challenged the idea that police routinely engage in racial profiling and suggested that if police went after groups based on crime statistics, African-Americans and Hispanics would be more aggressively targeted. She also argued that anti-profiling campaigns, led by groups like the ACLU, have diverted police from doing their jobs and have critically restrained federal authorities investigating terrorism. Ms. MacDonald was introduced by former New York City police commissioner Bernard Kerik. close
