Actually racial profiling won't work as well as you think. If I know they'll be checking me because I look Arab, I just get someone who is sympathetic and doesn't look Arab to cart whatever. Alot of black/coloured business ppl in South Africa did this to get white business. 8)MPower said:Exactly. Its just not accepting that racial profiling is necessary. Random checks are good for those who just want to be politically correct and not tick someone off for being checked. The fact of the matter is that we need to take in account much more aspects when inspecting people than we do today. Random checks just give the terrorists more outs than he deserves.justin syder said:The exact reason why the elephant is pissing on the Liberals. They just dont get it. Racial profiling works, random checks dont because like MPower said, grandma could be just ahead of some arab in line at an airport but because grandma was the 4th randomly checked the terrorist suspect goes scott free.It is the greatest bit of irony when you go through an airport security check in America and the grand mother in front of you gets her bag and computer checked for weapons and bombs yet the suspecious gentleman behind you is not checked because he is Muslim and the politically correct people in this country get sensitive when we target people just because of their religion or race. However mean or cruel it might sound, it is life and we have to accept the fact that nearly 80-85 percent of terror attacks occur by people who are Muslim. Its just a fact accept it.
Besides, Arabs are only 20% of all Muslims. To you lot an Arab is automatically Muslim, and a Muslim is automatically Arab. Most Muslims are from the Indonesia/Malaysia region, and there are more black Muslims in Africa than Arab muslims.
