It is politically incorrect for everyone especially Democrats to advocate racial profiling.
I disagree. I support affirmative action because it is the right thing to do. It is positive racial profiling.
I also support racial profiling to keep America safe. If certain people are committing crimes, we should focus on them and people who look and and act like them.
In the Fort Hood attacks, we have a muslim who just like many of the terrorists talks and acts in a certain anti-American way.
For example there were positive statements about suicide bombings, and anxiety about fighting against Muslims.
The point is, if you are going to dress like a traditional Muslim, say things that sound radical and/or anti-American, then you should be targeted and investigated.
Just as, if you are an African American dressed in "hip hop" clothing standing on an inner-city corner for 2 hours in the middle of the day, you should be investigated for drug sales.
Just as, if you are a white male who talks about how "the country is being taken from you" and you collect guns, you should be surveilled by officials to make sure you are acting legally and up to good.
I don't think we should wait for bad things to happen and then wonder why.
We already know. People are rather simple. Most are rather honest. They indicate their intentions through their words and behavior.
