What Is Racial Profiling?
Sometimes a person is targeted as a possible thief or under suspicion for committing another crime merely because of their personal characteristics. According to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), these characteristics are not limited to race. They also include religion, ethnic background and national origin. Accusing someone of a crime based on those traits rather than on their actions constitutes racial profiling.
What Is Defamation?
When you are falsely accused of a crime, your reputation may be damaged. The legal term for this damage is defamation. For defamation to be proven, the false accusation needs to have hurt your reputation, and it must have caused you damage. Damage could mean loss of job opportunities, loss of reputation or loss of standing in the community, and so on.
