"I'll take Racial Profiling for $1,500 Alex."
"Morales-Brito, Cavallaro, Sosa"
"What are the last names of brown people driving on a drug pipeline?"
"That is correct"
and I'll take "it is what it is" Alex.

You cant assign these people new names, and then call it racist because they all get caught doing the same thing. Obviously its a cultural thing for Hispanics from out of the area to inundate our area with their drugs.
I had no idea Hispanic drug trafficking was trying to compete with big Pharma and Pain Management Physicians. A minority of Brown citizens with no power and no money make easy targets for those of us who choose not to critically think
