As someone who has experienced racial profiling at the airport (my parents are persian) it really is a weird feeling when something like this happens.

Quick personal story: I was pulled over for a random security check this past christmas. They went through my bookbag, wallet, and padded me down. They asked me a series questions about my trip and about my personal life (being very condescending the entire time)

The experience was like nothing I had experienced before. By my appearance, I look middle eastern, but I've lived my entire life in the united states (born on longisland and lived in charlotte for 20 years); It's a weird feeling... You feel guilty for something you know you haven't done.

I understand the security risk facing airports since 9/11, but I just wish there was a better way to secure airports. Well anywho, that's my two cents.

Random: Do you guys remember this machine from Total Recall?

Excellent post. Bottom line is that 9/11 DID happen and it has affected the way we fly. Someone mentioned the Timothy McVeigh thing earlier. I bet you U-Haul renters in Oklahoma City wouldn't rent anything to people in Far Right extremist group t-shirts.

They have ones that you have to step into that shows everything under your clothes, but you have to be selected to go into it. They had something on Nat. Geo. a while back about it. Half the people said its an invasion of privacy because it shows EVERYTHING under your clothes, half said they dont care.

"arabic writing" isn't an islamic extremist group, so that analogy doesn't fit.

a better analogy would be not renting u-hauls to people with english writing on their shirts because mcveigh spoke english.
