  • The terrorists aren't going to come out and tell us.

    How many terrorist attacks were by muslim people? I am not trying to say that all muslims are terrorists because there are a lot of muslims in the world, but almost all of the terrorist attacks on out nation were done by muslims. Terrorist groups like Al queada, Isis and others are all muslim terrorist organization one is more well known today especially from the recent Paris bombings not to long ago done by Isis. Th other terrorist group was in charge of 9/11 and others before that. So what Im trying to say is when people are coming in and out of the airports there is no way of us knowing that they are or aren't terrorists, but we can't keep letting terrorists just walk right through out airports and everything else. Eventually its going to get to a point where someone is going to have to have the balls to do something about these attacks.

  • Yes, national security is most important.

    Obviously, racial profiling is going to hassle some innocent people. But what's really important is that we are protected from terrorist attacks...And pretty much all terrorists look the same.

    Also, although terrorists do not make their decisions BECAUSE of their race, it's still the case that most of the people who are terrorists look like that, so it's still an effective way of finding terrorists. Remember that the most recent surveys show that 7% of Muslims are radical...That's a lot of people.

    Yes, white people can be terrorists too. But they are not likely to.

    As far as abuse goes, 1) national security is more important...We don't want to sit around worrying about "privacy rights" when a bomb could go off, and 2) the alternative to picking on Muslims is picking on (usually innocent) people of other races. This has lead to numerous instances of unnecessary abuse. Targeting the culture that really is responsible for most attacks on our country is a better idea than targeting other races.

    As far as racism goes: Actually, this is completely different from telling blacks they cannot use the same water fountain. There is no compelling reason why blacks are inferior to whites, or that they should be treated differently. However, there is a national security threat in allowing Muslims to go without more scrutiny.

    Also, racism is bias against a particular race, and we're dealing more with a particular culture than a race in this instance...It just so happens that the culture where 7% of the people want to blow up the US all look the same.

  • It's the common sense solution.

    Interestingly, basically EVERY SINGLE terrorist attack in recent years has come from Muslims. No one denies this. It baffles me that people want to avoid hurting feelings of a few while allowing many more feelings to be hurt because of a massive terrorist attack that kills 150 passengers on a plane. Last time I checked, killing 150 people is worse than stopping any number of people and giving them a slight hassle.

    Seriously, this is not unjustifiable discrimination. When all terrorists look the same, it's okay to check out the next guy who looks exactly the same.

    Guess how Richard Reid was stopped from detonating his bomb? His race. Passengers on his plane just looked at him and knew he was trouble, wrestling him to the ground. Since when did passengers become better security guards than trained TSA personnel? Answer: when they utilized a tool called racial profiling.

  • Definitely, it works for Israel

    Israel is one of the most hated countries in the world. Yet, it has never had a successful terrorist attack on its airlines. The reason is that Israeli airport security doesn't use the security circus we have here, in fact you never step through a metal detector. Instead they employ many well trained security personnel looking for signs & behavior that indicate suspicious activity. You are profiled at various checkpoints from the time you drive onto airport property to the time you board the planes. They save a lot of money, time,, hassle and have stopped several attacks using this method.

    The U.S. on the other hand spends hundreds of millions of dollars on airport security, and they have never thwarted a single attack prior to the terrorist boarding the airplane. The security is just an act... As if taking your shoes off & only allowing little shampoos would stop a determined bomber (if a group really wanted to use liquid explosives couldn't they just have multiple people bringing it in in the allowed size containers). There should be no reason we make an elderly white female go through the same procedure as a young middle eastern male in the name of political correctness.

  • Airports should not use racial profiling.

    Racial or religious profiling is terrible and should not be performed in airports. People wonder why racism still exists. Criminal profiling is something I agree with and is a lot better than watching someone walk down the airport terminal because they are muslim, black or green. Its disrespectful and just plain rude.

  • Security Guidelines Need to be Standardized.

    In today's security "culture" many techniques utilizing racial stereotyping are used, including, "chat downs" and "random" screenings. In order to create a more fair and unbiased security system, it is necessary to standardize and implement security plans either nationwide or worldwide. These security measures should include, but should not be limited to full body scans, bag scans or checks, and a standardized method of any further searches or pat downs. These methods for selecting need to be the same across all airports in agreement with anti-racial profiling methods. Requirements for further search and possible seizure should include: possession of a concealed weapon or explosive device and noncompliance with the system. If possible, a body scan machine with a lie detecting apparatus attached should be utilized. Although computers and machines do have inherent flaws, these machines will be closely monitored by security experts who have had the same training.

  • Racial Profiling Not Needed

    I believe racial profiling only upholds problems with racism in society. I do not believe we should use racial profiling in airports or any other public forum. Racial profiling only causes problems and makes those people being profiled more nervous and more apt to become upset. A person who wants to do harm, does not make their decisions based on their skin color or race.

  • Definitely should not.

    No, airports should not use racial profiling. I am very much against racial profiling in all areas. Just because a person is a certain race does not make them a terrorist. Moreover, the color of someone's skin does not make them not a terrorist. A white person could be a terrorist. This is why racial profiling is unfair and not at all useful.

  • It is not right to use racial profiling in airports

    Racial profiling in airports should not be used. It is not a race that does the crime, but rather individuals. Take Muslims for example. The Muslim race is not to blame for what happened on 9/11 but rather, extremists. It doesn't matter what a person's race is when it comes to crime because people of all backgrounds commit crimes. Therefore, it is unjust to specifically target one group.

  • No, they shouldn't.

    No, racial profiling is wrong and would make certain people feel upset and not want to visit the airport anymore for fear of being told to step aside simply for their skin color. The country has worked hard to move past things like that, and suddenly starting it up again would set us back a good few decades when we should be focused on moving forward.

  • No, airports should not use racial profiling.

    No, I do not believe that it is morally or ethically right to use racial profiling at airports. I think that using racial profiling creates an unfair world for minorities, and that it perpetuates racial stereotypes that we as Americans should be trying hard to get away from. Airport security should treat everyone equally.

  • Airports should not use racial profiling.

    If airports use racial profiling, I would think that is a violation of civil rights. It is no different than telling Rosa Parks she has to sit at the back of the bus. It is no different then telling people there are black and white water fountains. It is stereotyping because of their color or culture.
