How far can the law go to protect people from unfair treatment because of racial discrimination? Is it possible to legislate fairness and respect between people? Attorney Lewis Myers discusses some recent cases of racial profiling and the Civil Rights laws that are designed to protect citizens from abuse. Can we create laws that protect against racial profiling? How do we enforce a moral code of respect for all human beings? Is it just a matter of having a "conversation on race" as President Obama suggests? Or are there deeper issues of early indoctrination toward racism within our schools and religious institutions that must be eliminated from our culture?
