Vermont is not immune to racial problems. Here, racial profiling by police results in rates of traffic stops, searches, and arrests of people of color that far outstrip those of white people and exceed those of many other states, when viewed on a per capita basis. We suspend kids of color from school at much higher rates than white kids; and we incarcerate African American men at one of the highest rates in the country.
