One type of discriminatory enforcement of laws involves racial profiling. The most basic example of a racial profiling arrest is the following situation:
Two men are walking down the street displaying the same signs of intoxication. The police arrive on the scene and arrest the African-American man but not the Caucasian man.
Another example involves the police only questioning those of a certain race.
If a storeowner reported a robbery but did not see the robber's face, the police may only question Hispanics or African Americans for no other reason than they "appear more guilty" than a white person.
