    So let's say you see a black guy with a name like Bob Johnson with an American passport traveling from Nigeria to Detroit with a one way ticket and no luggage. Would you say we should ignore that too? The only difference between that guy and your example is black v. white, while the only difference between that guy and this bomber was the name.

    Are you really arguing that we should base our security procedures on someone's name? That's just asinine.

    Well, then, you've led a seriousy sheltered life! When you get another 15 years under your belt, you'll see what I'm talking about.

    I used to think like that...then I grew up.
    Yes, if only I were 15 years older, I'd know that I'm insufficiently bigoted.

    If the black Bob Johnson has an American passport and conducts himslf well, I'm not going to pay him as much attention, no.

    Are you saying that we need to swamp Bob an ignore Muhommed? There's assinin for ya's. No, wait, that's just stupid.

    One way, international flight, no luggage, travelling alone - that guy's getting triple screened, no matter if his name is Mary Sue or if he's green.

    Are you one of those black folks who don't like being profiled? I guess hypocrites do come in all colours.

    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Ok, I'm game. But, let's not let the Liberalism tke over and screen Mary Sue, while we smile and stamp Mustaffa Mohammed righ on through, just because we're scared ****less of being accused of racism.

    Ordering additional screening because of someone's passport, behavior, travel history, or ticket/baggage status: Completely logical (and happens already)

    Ordering additional screening because of someone's name, religion, or terroristy-looking skin color: Absolutely moronic.

    I said:

    No, because unlike you, I don't attribute negative characteristics to entire racial or religious groups based on the actions of a few people.
    You responded:

    Well, then, you've led a seriousy sheltered life! When you get another 15 years under your belt, you'll see what I'm talking about.

    I used to think like that...then I grew up.
    You acknowledge that you attribute negative characteristics to entire racial or religious groups based on the actions of a few people. Definitionally, you are obstinately devoted to your own opinions and prejudices.

    And this doesn't happen outside of your imagination.
