So every young black man walking on the street is stealing things? Calling the police on a black man because he is walking on the street doesn't sound right to me. It shouldn't to you either. It sounds, well, racist.

Froathing and over the top.

If there is a recent history known in that area for crime it would be prudent for a neighborhood watch person to watch all kinds of people. But especially so for those who fit the reported profile of recent criminal events. Size, age, race, dress, hair and language are all identifiers whether you like it or not.

So long as you are targeting those decriptors that is not racist at all, even though you want it to be.
