You're a dumbass sir, I know plenty of white people that are poor as hell and plenty of black people that are priviledged. Shut up with your nonsense.

We are living in the age of color-blind racism.

Not at all. You're racist and not at all colour-blind.

And yes, you are racist:

You define people by what you consider to be their race.

You judge people by the racist stereotypes that you approve of, with total disregard for the circumstances of any individuals. Of course, you reject the entire concept of an individual because you define people by what you think of as their race.

You think that people of the "race" you dislike the most should be penalised for being of that "race" and you claim they deserve it because they're ALL unfairly privileged. Just like, for example, anti-Semite propaganda about "the Jew".

drat your racist hypocrisy.

So, when you chose "18-29" as your age, were you referring to decades or centuries?

It's quite remarkable that you're at least 200 years old. Why have I never heard of you before? Surely a person that old would have made international news.

In my experience some black people take any opportunity to cry "racism" More than any other race. But bw "racial & wrong" and "following the rules right" I'll go with "following wrong rules that should not exist"

I am Hispanic and MANY Latinos get discriminated against too. You NEVER see them pulling the race card. Its mostly African Americans who keep racism going. Calling each other what they feel are racial slurs and being racist to White and Latinos. If blacks feel discriminated against then they should first change themselves and stop feeling owed something bc they are born black. Own it and be proud and ultimately stop calling white people racist and "privileged". This lady's mother was WHITE and she does not even look black w her hair up so she needs to stop claiming "RACE" is why they pulled her to do this.

All I hear is "Wah wah wah damn nigg3rs are always complaining." We are living in the age of color-blind racism. You and all the other (I assume white) people here spouting that "race card" nonsense are just as racist as your predecessors. The only difference is that you don't throw around racial slurs as casually and parade down the streets in white sheets. Hell, you don't even admit that racism exists in the amount it does or even at all. I'm sure none of you consider yourselves racist, but unless you first admit that you have privilege over "minorities" and then work to change it, you most certainly are.
I'm not trying to hurt anyone's feelings or wag my finger at anyone, but there is a lot of ignorance being spouted on this forum. White people, it's not your fault that you have privilege, it is something that was handed to you before you were born. But you're adults now and ought to see the world for what it is. Once you see it, maybe you'll decid

years ago i visited someone in a minimum security prison. even though my hair was, at the time, cropped short like a little boy's, it was thoroughly physically searched. i don't see too much difference between that and being searched before boarding a plane.

Maybe I'm just tired but I swear I didn't hear her say anything about racial motivation. The reporter did, though.

@NATattack I see what you are saying, TSA employees do have to go through a screening process to make sure they haven't been convicted of any serious crimes (probably why the process takes so long, although when I looked up information on becoming a TSA agent other people reported it taking as little as 3 months) and they do have to take a test... still they only spend 10 days training them before they unleash these people on the public. Not sure that is safe!

I know to think this is wrong, but having her hair searched like this is not racial profiling. When she's followed around in convenience stores and pulled over by police for no reason, that is. She could have hid a grenade in that hair, it was big enough for that and too dark and thick to see through it. The white women who didn't have their hair searched didn't have hair big enough to hide something like a grenade, plain and simple.

She's a woman that has been fighting against her natural style for years, in a culture where little girls start getting their hair treated with burning chemicals as little as 3 years old.

Her hair is absolutely beautiful- but she needs to embrace and understand her texture. She's making a big deal about this not because she's offended they picked her- but because /she's/ ashamed of it. If she was confident in her appearance, she would laugh this off. I find poo in my hair all the time, I laugh it off because I have thicker hair and a lot of it, but I love my hair. There's no reason to call the media about it ._.;

I dont agree with the measures TSA takes but BELIEVE ME they do not just throw any old Bob off the street in that position. My hubby applied to work for TSA and it took months of screening, evaluations, processing etc 7-9 to be exact. You are working for the federal gov. and the don't mess around. Although like you i wouldn't let them grab on my kids!

I'm so drating sick of people complaining about the TSA. You know why they have all these intrusive security measures? Because there have been a number of terrorist threats and actions in the last few years. they aren't 100% effective, sure, but it's not like terrorists are going to go right up to them and say "Oh, I am a danger to human lives, you should search me."

I really don't think it was racially motivated. The last time I flew they swabbed my fingers and shoes for explosives, though strangely enough I did not have to go through a scanner or get a pat down. They check weird random stuff. I of course thought that was hilarious, but the point is I'm a 25 year old white woman and I was going on vacation with my fiance and future mother-in-law, BUT THEY STILL PICKED ME TO CHECK TOO. People get randomly picked all they time, and they're bound to pick African Americans along the way too.

That said the whole security screening process is completely out of line and people should be outraged about it! I didn't mind being swabbed but if I had a child and they wanted to pat them down I would probably yank my kid out of that situation really fast! If they want to search toddlers and babies they should not be able to throw Bob from off the street in a uniform and call him a security specialist. They should have to hire medical professionals.
