White people like Wayne Brady because he makes Bryant Gumbel look like Malcolm X.

RE: Wisconsin Jewelery store racial profiling
There are so many factors is identifying someone's race, or most anything else about them, over the phone.

Age has to be considered, health, the situation at hand, the purpose of the call, where a person grew up....the list is quite long and includes the speakers primary language.

I speak differently when making a business call than when I am having a conversation with a friend, I know I spoke differently a couple years ago when I called 911 and was panicked.

If you go by a quick phone call with someone you do not know...you are making assumptions that could lead to problems.

I can tell if I'm hearing a black person much of the time without seeing them.

1. Recognizing that certain speech patterns and tones of voice can overwhelmingly indicate an ethnic background is NOT racial profiling. (Assuming that a person whose ethnicity you discerned will commit a crime because of that ethnicity would be racial profiling).
2. It's apparent to me when I hear a black male speak that the speaker is black much of the time. This is without looking at them, and has to do with a different quality than just an accent. Of course this isn't 100 percent, but it's pretty close.

Your making assumptions based only on a manner of speech is profiling.

On a phone call you can't even be sure if you are speaking with a male or female, especially in a tense situation.
I don't think we are talking about the same thing:
