Racial profiling in the US in one video?

Two young men walk down a street arguing and pushing each other, while a police officer standing by watches them without intervening.

The same two young men walk past the same police officer on the same section of street 20 minutes later, still arguing, and this time they are pushed against a wall and frisked.

The difference? The second time they were wearing traditional Muslim clothes.

YouTube stars Adam Saleh and Sheikh Akbar, otherwise known as TrueStoryASA, decided to see if they could capture what they see as racial profiling on film after repeatedly being stopped by police officers while making their prank videos.

They claimed that they were able to get the required reaction in their first attempt. cannot verify whether the video wasn't staged.
