getting scared. What do I do? Oprah is always telling me never to let myself get taken to the second location! RUN!!! Now the guy is pulling down his hood because he doesn't care anymore if I see his face because dead girls tell no tales and - OH NO! - he's reaching into his pocket for something - OMG what is it??! I'm not sticking around to find out!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!
So, yeah it sure could have been that she's got a colour issue. But she also may have been paranoid stoned, just come from watching a scary movie (as you said) or has simply watched too many; perhaps her friends and relatives have been in her ear over and over about how careful she needs to be and first time off the farm and all; plus you say a girl on your campus was molested recently?
You may have indeed been the victim of racial profiling - but maybe, just maybe you're guilty of psychological profiling?
