    Yes, I agree with you. But, I second guessed myself, making myself believe I was imagining it because I'm not so full of myself so as to think that I have conquered all of my suspicion of 'other'.

    And my point is that I'm not sure I want people on airplanes to second guess themselves like I did. And end up with a plane hijacked. With hundreds or perhaps thousands dead. All because of a well-intentioned (and rightly so) desire to resist racism.

    The impulse that feeds racism is complex. In these dangerous times, perhaps we must recognize that, and not always operate on our idealistic notions of how we ought to be, and rather admit how we simply are, for now. And use that wisdom to be a bit safer.

    Do try and pay attention to the world around you, it will teach you so much if you just open your eyes!
    I guess Christians are a bunch of savages, too.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Yes, I can't figure out why they were being such jerks about it later. To me, this is the worst part of the story.

    It is to bad that people needing to fly have to go through such trouble.

    The airline that kicked them off the flight should have not only re-booked them but let them fly for free.

    Disgusting behavior.

    Here we go. Say anything about the flaws in Islam and someone always has to say "but Christians do this."

    This family was dressed in Muslim gab and had children with them. Nothing about their body language screamed "terrorist bombers". Besides being Muslim, they did not come close to fitting the profile of hijackers. The sheer mention of the word "security" have them reported, for god's sake.

    Listen, I'm all for instinct, but from what I know of this case, it was not instinct that got this family reported. It was fear. And if anyone is going to be that terrified, then it's simple... don't fly.

    When will all of you face the fact that Muslims, no matter how nice and good and hard working and sweet they might be, harbor in their midsts the seeds of the overthrow of our government through non-violent Jihad?

    You can't just go by what you personally experience.
