Nas on Arrest -- I'm a Victim of 'Profiling'

12/7/2009 8:12 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Rapper Nas claims he was a victim of "profiling" when he was pulled over for DUI back in September ... even though he told the cops he smoked weed before he got behind the wheel.

Nas: Click to watch
Even though he failed several field sobriety tests during the incident in Georgia, the rapper hit up Katsuya this weekend and explained, "You know what it is ... profiling man ... but you, they can't stop a good man from shining man."

As we previously reported, the case was thrown out because drug tests came back negative ... but this time Nas wasn't takin' any chances ... dude hopped in the passenger seat.

TMZ: Take note on how ALL BLACK PEOPLE ARE PROFILED. Especially males.

Ok, so he failed all the field sobriety tests, which means he was impaired, whether by drugs, alcohol, lack of sleep or whatever, so it's logical to assume that he may have also been driving erratically and the police were correct in stopping him. Where is the profiling?

He right! Its cause he's black. Everyone know that white people are allowed to drink and take drugs before they drive.

I get so tired of hearing , oh poor me they only pulled me over because I am black. Maybe if these rappers didn't look like gangsters they wouldn't get pulled over so much.If you dress like you do, and talk like you do then expect some attention especially from police.

this guy is driving funny, then gets pulled over, then tells cops he is smoking weed, then is found not guilty of dui, then says he was profiled....no wonder 50% of the prison system is black males.

Ya I know...it's impossible to think Georgia could EVER be guilty of profiling. I mean it is absolutely impossible that ANY cop would pull someone over because they are black.

Hey KELC....Did you ever think Black people are getting sick and tired of being pulled over because they're are black? Do you think ALL black people dress like gangsters? Do you believe the only black people that ARE pulled over are dressed like gangsters?
America has got to get its head out of its a$$ and realize this happens everyday!!!!AND....... black people have got to get THEIR heads out of their A$$ and get their SH!t together and start taking more responsibility for their own actions...it's a two way street. Having said that let's not pretend profiling and racism does not exist.It does, and it's a problem that needs to be solved by BOTH sides.

SO SAD that SO many americans are still blind to the fact that racial profiling is alive and WELL in AMERICA! TMZ posted the actual footage of the sobriety testing, any IDIOT can tell he passed with flying colors. Which is why he was ultimately cleared of all charges! AND TO EVERYONE WHO IS "TIRED OF HEARING PEOPLE SAY WE ARE PULLED OVER BECAUSE WE ARE BLACK" OH WELL!! WE ARE TIRED OF BEING PULLED OVER FOR THOSE REASONS ALONE. Im living proof, not a thug, don't wear baggy clothes or baseball caps turned backwards. But I still manage to be pulled over at least once a week! for being too dark to drive a new RangeRover! Same thing happened with my previous luxury vehicle I owned.
Go Nas, thanks for being real with America and letting them know the truth!
