Political correctness be fucking damned. It's fucking insane what traveling through an airport has come to. I've seen 14 year old girls being examined by far too eager appearing security guards, not always women, (who probably go into security dreaming of fondling teenage girls), while every single middle eastern male can walk through security unharmed because security fears him shouting racism or ethnic profiling. This is fucking retarded. If the cops put out an APB for a caucasian male, mid 30s, 6'4", wears glasses, brown hair, do I yell racial profiling if they pull me over? Or do I realise it's a necessity of security? (hint, *I* realise it's the latter)
The sad fact of the matter is, ~99% of the world's terrorists are of middle eastern stock, we have been attacked by them repeatedly, and to ignore them at security checkpoints just because we don't want to appear insensitive to them is fucking ridiculous.
Yes, I do apologize to all the middle eastern people who are NOT terrorists (which is 99.999999999999999999999999% of them), but sadly, you will have to suffer under the bad actions of some of your countrymen. This is an imperfect world.
Search every middle eastern male between the age of 16-50 at airports. I'm fine with continuing random spot checks, but until such a time as we see attacks by a large number of white dudes, yellow women or green martians, we need to focus on the ethnic group that's so far been PROVEN to be a potential threat.
Btw, I've been searched at airports plenty of times, mostly because the damn metal detector keeps going off (because of my glasses, I have a titanium frame), and it doesn't bother me. Yes, it's annoying, but I understand it's necessary. If >>I<< can live with it, so can every middle eastern person. A security check takes three total minutes. Boo fucking hoo.
