    racial profiling is real. i was the NCOIC of a honor guard detail while in the Army going to new mexico. upon arriving at our hotel to meet the guide for the area, 5 of us got off our bus dressed in civilian attire, 4 blacks 1 white. when our guide arrived (he was white), he immediatly walked up to the white guy and start addressing him as our Lieutenant assuming he was in charge. while he was talking to him giving him instructions, we all just looked at each other. i allowed him to talk for a few seconds and then told him that the guy he was talking to was not our lieutenant but a private. the lowest ranking member of our detail.
