Leading the Charge

In response to the George Zimmerman not-guilty verdict, Congressional Black Caucus members are preparing an anti-racial profiling bill, The Hill reports. In addition to barring law enforcement agents from targeting people based on race, gender or religion, it would mandate race-sensitivity training as a condition for receiving federal funding. The Justice Department also would be required to provide Congress with periodic reports on discriminatory profiling practices.
