Not go overboard and harrass, that's not what I'm advocating here.
It would be pretty much agreed that people of "Middle Eastern Descent" to date have made up the great majority of those threatening to do these things to the USA. We've all read by now that there are "sleeper cells" in the US - some having lived here for 10+ years, having children and working along side us - all the while investigating, scoping out potential targets and the like. What are your thoughts on this touchy subject?
So what would i be classified as? I was born in Canada, My father is Iranian my Mother English i have ms mothers skin tone (its a bit darker and gets dark in sun but other than that it looks white) and black hair, brown eyes. Would i be classiified White or Middle Eastern?
Now how can that question be answered? The bottom line question of this thread simply is to ask about racial profiling. If a particular group is guilty more than 50% of the time commiting a certain crime - should that particular group be under an intensified scrutiny?
Racial profiling, while it may result in a few successful cases, will eventually create a deep chasm between whites and non-whites. You are looking for more trouble.
