    They don't look like thugs to me.

    Why do you think they look thuggish?

    Now, that is a stupid statement. Are you one of those folks that stereotypes me, just because I'm black? Please, tell me you're not. Black dudes can't listen to Merle Haggard? That's reserved for the white boys? I can bust with some Robert Johnson. How's that for a Southron culuhed bahwee?

    Take time to get your foot out of your mouth, if you need.

    I'm not older, Ethreal. I'm just old fashion.

    You don't get out much, do you?

    There's two kinds of people that I keep my hand on my wallet when they're around me: cats like that, and Pentecostal preachers.

    Of course you can listen to Myrle Haggard. I'm just surprised that anyone (particularly a purported black person who is active in politics) has never heard of Mos Def, despite his incredibly influential role in hip hop, his acting career, his political involvement, etc.

    At the very least, I would have thought you would have known about his views on Islam and 9/11, because that would have given you another evil liberal terrorist-sympathizer to demonize.

    Jumping into the thread late -

    Some thoughts -

    1. I flew through Amsterdam to Detroit about 2 weeks ago and I'm wondering how this guy got on board. Security in Amsterdam is at the gate and pretty intense - questioning, metal detectors, rather thorough patdowns for everyone. Something went wrong with the process.

    2. I didn't read every post, but a lot, and it seems that a lot of folks don't really know what intelligent profiling is. It's not just visual. It's looking at several different factors and then determining whether a person should have a further look - when was ticket purchased (last minute), was it paid for in cash, is it one-way, how much luggage, personal background, etc. This is what we should be doing rather than the random nonsense we do today (at least in the USA).

    3. Now it's likely that we're going to over-react and implement stupid procedures (like removing shoes) that will hassle everyone and accomplish very little. Rather depressing for those of us who travel frequently.

    Nobody is opposed to this. What we're opposed to is the "electrocute all Muslims who have the temerity to try to board planes" approach espoused by people like apdst.

    Learn something new everyday, dont'cha? One of my high school teachers used to say, "it's what you learn after you know everything that really counts". You might get something out of that.

    Here's some more jam I enjoy. Check out 7 and7, that hits home for me. Whiskey Brown is good, too.

    But, hey, I'm black. I guess th next stupid assumption you're gonna make is that I don't work for a living.

    Good post! Profiling is used all the time, and is useful. Racial, or religious, or ethnic profiling is not useful.


    Also, welcome to DP! Nice to meetcha
