    Request for assistance

    Hi all...
    I mentioned in a few earlier posts that I am a 12 year police veteran from PA. I am now a full-time student at Penn State University with intentions of becoming a prosecutor.
    I am currently taking a class called Race/Gender/Employment. In the first half of the semester, it mainly dealt with gender discrimination. That was easily handled by me because I lived it.
    But...the second half is dealing with racial discrimination. So, I am looking for a few volunteers who are persons of color, either LEO or civilian, that are willing to answer the following questions:

    Explore past and present experiences of discrimination in the workplace, at school, in stores, when submitting applications for jobs or housing, police stops, etc., that this person may have experienced. What obstacles did this person face, if any? What did this person do to overcome those obstacles?
    If they did experience any of the above, is there evidence of this and if so, what type?

    *******Please note that the final question only asks about the existence and type of evidence, I don't need to know exactly what it is or even see it if it exists. The only other information that I would need is your age, gender and race. Please feel free to PM me if you don't feel comfortable posting on here or you may email me at wweidman@ptd.net

    I would greatly appreciate any assistance that anyone that matches the above requirements could help me with...even if you have not experienced any discrimination, that is worth my learning about.
    I will not include any names (or ask for them) for my essay and only my instructor will be seeing it, unless you decide to take part and would like to read it.

    Thanks in advance. I've heard that the members of this forum are great people and I'm happy to be here and grateful for the warm welcome!
