Questions of Racial Profiling

Both Trayvon's and Jordan's killings spurred national outcry over racial profiling against young Black males. Zimmerman followed Trayvon through the neighborhood against police orders, and neighbors described him as being prejudiced toward Black men. Dunn, who is white, exchanged words with Jordan, fired at the vehicle and left the scene after the incident, according to police. (Photo: Mario Tama/Getty Images)
