It's funny to see advocates of racial profiling object to this gender profiling. Not just because it's bad profiling but because they resent being profiled and treated like a threat due to a profile.
Where had anyone on this group call for racial profiling?
Religion profiling when it come to young likely Muslim males and in that connection assuming that if a traveler is from a country that is mostly Muslim then he is likely to be Muslim.
No one had blown up a plane because of his race that I am aware of and the Muslim faith is as wide spread as any other major faith.
Good try but it is hardly the same thing especially as the connection with being a male stranger on a plane and groping a child on a plane had not been shown that I am aware of unlike the clear danger of young Muslim males on planes had been shown.
When such a study or studies are released to indicate that a chid is in fact at added risk of being sexaul abuse on a plane by a male stranger sitting by him or her then we should look at the issure once more.
