Asian-Americans Also Profiled in Arizona


"Jim Shee says he never experienced discrimination, let alone racial profiling, until his 70th birthday.  Shee, a Paradise Valley, Ariz., real-estate investor of Chinese and Spanish descent, was driving to meet friends for lunch on April 6, 2010, his birthday, when he stopped on a side street in west Phoenix to check a text message.  A Phoenix police officer approached and tapped on his car window.  "Let me see your papers," Shee says the officer told him.  "That is the very first thing he said," recalled Shee, now 72." - Arizona Republic, Nov. 26, 2012.
