Is it really racial profiling?
When you have crimes that are committed by a large percentage of a race, ethnicity, or religion, is it really racist to profile them?
Or is it just good police work, as there is a high probability that certain people are more likely to commit certain kinds of crime.
Is it any worse than the TSA forcing all the passengers to take off their shoes, and even more intimate areas of privacy because they can't really detect terrorists.
It has been show that TSA security can be bypassed, so why are we still using these reactive security measures?
PROFILING is better
Profiling doesn't work, especially for the TSA, because a majority of people who slip armed weapons past them are WHITE MEN. Not Muslims, not PoC, but white American men. The TSA has a 95% fail rate when it comes to detecting weapons or bombs, even with profiling.
Crimes committed by a large percentage of a race, eh? So a handful of radical Muslim men equal a large percentage of a race or religion?
Islam isn't a race. It's a religion. And, yes, for choosing that religion they probably should undergo more scrutiny in TSA security lines than non-religious people. One's name is a sufficient-enough identifier for being Moslem. It's better than everyone getting scrutinized, which is what we have now. I'd make an exception for Islamic families with children or the elderly.
Since white males tend to commit the majority of terror acts in the US with mass shootings or bombings, white males between ages of 17 and 40 should probably also be profiled.

Many people agree and disagree with racial profiling. To put it in simpler words, if someone looks like a terrorist, for example, do you think he/she should be stopped and checked in the airport only because the person looks like one? Would you get offended if YOU were randomly picked out from the...

I support the Arizona Immigration Law and I'll gladly tell you why....I've read it. All of it. I've been slammed from every corner for supporting profiling. I always ask my critic, "Have you read the law?" the answer is usually a resounding yes yet, when I ask them...

Tell me if this is an example of racial profiling:I'm white, obviously, and so are my three daughters. One night my youngest daughter and her white friend were on their way home to our house when they were pulled over by the cops for no reason. We lived in BFE at the time, so the girls had cut...
