Ignore PC and go after the bad guys

Everyone is outraged and extremely frustrated by the infringement on our freedom by the TSA pat downs and full body scans at airports. Even more frustrating is that we all know the common sense solution to the problem of terrorists at airports. Profiling.

It has been said, "Don't let the inmates run the asylum." This is exactly what we are doing when we allow a handful of PC (Political Correctness) nuts to dictate our behavior; ordering us to ignore common sense solutions and play their "let's not offend anyone" ridiculous PC games.

Profiling is common sense. As a black man, if I find myself in the midst of a group of white guys with shaved heads and covered in swastikas and white power tattoos, profiling them, it would probably be unwise to quote a line from the movie, Blazing Saddles, "Where the white women at?"

Years ago in Maryland, early in the morning, in a mostly white upscale neighborhood, residents saw two black youths dressed in gangster attire walking their streets. The black youths obviously looked out of place. And yet, authorities were not alerted because the white residents did not want to appear racist profiling black males.

The two black youths hijacked a mom's car, drug her several feet as she attempted to save her toddler which they threw out of the window. Common sense profiling would have prevented this horrific incident.

All, I repeat "ALL," terrorist attacks have been committed by Middle Eastern men between the ages of 18 and 40. And yet, we can not profile these people. Instead, TSA agents are being forced to border molesting nuns, seniors and children. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XSQTz1bccL4&feature=youtu.be)

How did profiling become such a dirty word, when we present ourselves to the world in whatever way we wish to be profiled? Wall street executives wear suits to be profiled as responsible. Rock stars wear spiked hair, tattoos and piercings to be profiled as rebellious.

Remember, the popular book titled, "Dress for Success"? It could be re-titled, "How to Achieve Your Desired Profiling."

PC demands that we ignore life experiences, common sense and the messages individuals send in the way they present themselves.

If you are different than your projected image, the burden is on you to prove yourself otherwise. Do not demonize the public for simply reading your projected image.

For example, as an artist, I wear my signature hat, braid and black and white attire. At my first republican meeting, a white gentleman approached me and said, "The democrats meet down the road." He seemed pleasantly surprised when I smiled and replied, "I know. I'm in the right meeting."

Was this white man a racist for assuming I, a black man, dressed a bit out of the norm, was a democrat? No. He was using his life experiences and the knowledge that blacks, particularly non conservative attired blacks, typically vote democrat. Obama received 96% of the black vote. So, in most cases, he would have been correct in his assumption that this Avant Garde looking black man would be a democrat. Absurdly, PC would brand this white gentleman a racist.

Folks, we must end this PC madness which is a part of the Tea Party Movement agenda. We must continue screaming, "NO!" as loudly as possible, to the humiliating and unconstitutional PC pat downs and full body scans.

Tell the Obama administration, "Cut this PC nonsense and go after the bad guys. PROFILE!"
