That distinction in treatment based on "race" is also obvious when the 2nd amendment to the USA constitution comes into play. I don't think any person from a recognisable minority group would even think of going to a supermarket or any public place carrying assault weapons (let's not even begin about assaulting a state building during a protest action.)

In practice the second amendment does not apply to minorities (as is the case of a few others.)

There have been a couple of symbolic actions. An African American State Legislator was escorted into a Southern statehouse by legally armed African American bodyguards. Of course, this was preceded by extensive notice that this action would take place.
