Targeted Advertising

On the radio I heard an ad featuring a couple of voices who were 'obviously' black and urban. The product was those walkie-talkie phones, and the kicker line was, "your late-night bootie chirp".

Why is it that it's ok to air this kind of crap to make money, but if we use similar logic for security purposes it's denounced as racial profiling?

1 Some show on Comedy Channel last night (brain needs more coffee before details of anything are relevant),
a comedian was complaining about his recent traffic stop... he said the cops were stopping everyone who was driving on that particular stretch of sidewalk, and that's profiling and it's just wrong.
