Nothing new with the IRS profiling
A decade ago, the specific racial makeup of the IRS, a government body of workers, was noted when they were doing the same thing as today, in post racial America.
It really just shows that once the power is on the other side, the abuses are just as pronounced, if not more. It's like the part in the Movie Defiance, when the Jews hiding in the woods get a chance to vent on the captured Aryan blonde blue eyed German, and beat him to death.
Perhaps an additional penalty should be added to the perpetrators if it can be shown that targeting was due to race , religion, and belief profiling. A hate crime.
