SFDebate Asks, Is Racial Profiling Necessary for Airport Security?

SFDebate Asks, Is Racial Profiling Necessary?

With the Christmas Day terror plot, racial profiling has once again become a topic of national debate. Some people insist that racial sensitivity should yield to the potential for another plane-related terror attack. On the other side, arguments are made that increased racial profiling would only exacerbate the cause of terrorism by encouraging rather than abating ill-feelings toward the West. Should United States public policy be cognizant of race? Is there a new form of statistically driven discrimination forming in the horizon? Come tell us what you think.
SF Debate is INFORUM's bi-weekly event, and is structured somewhat like a formal debate, with group participants posing arguments to support their views on the issue at hand.  To find out more about SFDebate or to register for this event visit
