    Is it  reasonable to think  one could fight and win a racial profiling case?

    In the south there are still police that racial profile to pull potential drug traffickers over to illegally search their vehicles. is it worth it to fight in a racist community and can it be beat?  Corruption is real in this particular city and the odds are not good to prevail but many minorities are being convicted and given major time in prison for what are definitely illegal search and seizures. How should the fight begin.

    This is a difficult question, yet a very prominent issue in many cities throughout the United States. For starters, it is very difficult to determine if, in fact, the police are pulling citizens over based on their race. If you are truly serious about changing the way a police department is run and have some evidence suggesting that there are indeed illegal search and seizures taking place, then I would recommend taking the non-legal route. Talk to several officers in the area and actually get to know them. Once you have accomplished this, the next big step would be to create some type of minority awareness program, or join a pre-existing one, working with the police department. With enough support the program could end up having an effect on their methodology and training. i.e. Courses dealing with racial discrimination could become a required part of every officers training, supervising officers could be required to review cases with potentials for racial discrimination, or if the city does not already have it, then the officers could be required to keep more specific records of how and why they pulled someone over.

    Time and money may give a person slim to no chances. Proving it is hardcore. Reasonable hm depends on the case
