Religious profiling is of great signifigance to our current society, whether we like it or not. We view Muslim's as fanatics and terrorists, killing in the name of God, despite the fact that this is only a small minority. Simple question. Does it have merit? Why or why not? My simple idea is that it DOES have merit, because it is usually a group of people that acts out. If truly innocent, then legally the people of the eithnicity have nothing to fear. Socially it is a problem yes, but after 9/11 who can doubt the fear within themselves when they see an arab in an airport, or on a plane next to you? In some ways, it does help catch terrorists or other dangers to society.
