    Racial profiling is about more than skin color. Things like age, sex, are you traveling alone or not, which country your from, do your mannerisms. Its called racial profiling but its not about being racist. I am a white male, Israeli citizen & passport holder and usually I have no trouble at airport security but last time I traveled I wasn't feeling so great and I was tired and had to think about the questions they asked much more i just didn't fit in right and so I was taken aside for further questioning. Nobody should take racial profiling personally, its about attempting to keep security threats to a minimum and its certainly not political because these guys have better things to do than pick on arabs because they don't want them taking a vacation in Israel. Flyers should be glad these security measures are taken because it keeps them safe. Most are inocent but there is always one that might try their luck and the more layers of security the less likely they are to succseed.
