    The truth often is embarrassing, and painful as well. The truth is what the PC folks don't want us to see. The truth is why the people who cry profiling are doing what they do. They don't want us to know the truth, so they try to cover it, rename it, whatever you want to call it. The newspaper is full of this stuff and one only has to open their eyes to see the source of a lot of crime, homicides, etc. Not all of it, but a very big percentage of it.
