I was stopped for speeding--no racial profiling issue--in an area of Washington State where the largest minority population is Native American. I'm Native American. After the officer got back in his car, I noticed that he noted my race as Caucasion on the ticket. Well, no one with 20/20 vision could possibly mistake me for Caucasion. It just made me wonder . . . What keeps officers honest in their reporting of "perceived race"?
