Racial Profiling: Let’s Cut a Deal

Conservative supporters of Arizona’s illegal-immigration law should seize this moment to cut the following deal with President Obama and liberals who object to the statute on the basis that it will result in racial profiling:

The statute’s opponents, including President Obama, agree not to support racial profiling in college admissions, public employment, the awarding of government contracts, or in their descriptions of tea partiers, critics of Obamacare, talk-radio hosts, and Cambridge cops. In return, supporters of the Arizona law agree to insert a provision explicitly prohibiting racial profiling.


Oh, wait — that provision’s already in there.
