With a judge ruling New York's stop-and-frisk policy is unconstitutional, racial profiling has been back in the news. Our list of celebs who have been victims of unjust profiling starts with Nas. The iconic rapper claimed he was targeted following a DUI arrest in Atlanta in 2009, but reassured fans when he said, "They can't keep a good man from shining." Charges against the rapper were eventually dropped.
