Summary
Explores the meaning of racial profiling in Canada as it is practised not only by the police but also by many other social institutions. Analyses the discourses of the media, policing officials, politicians, civil servants, judges, and other public authorities to demonstrate how those in power communicate and produce existing racialized ideologies and social relations of inequality through their common interactions
