Allow me to focus on racial profiling as it affects the screening of airline passengers, and to offer for the sake of discussion a "politically incorrect" viewpoint.

The last time I checked, no grannies in wheelchairs ever caused trouble on a domestic US scheduled airline flight. Neither have teenaged women (unless you count wearing short skirts on Southwest Airlines as "causing trouble").

So it seems to me that the random "full search" of grannies and teenaged women at the same proportional sampling rate as, for example, young men of middle eastern appearance between 15 and 35 is a waste of limited resources.

This, of course, assumes that these searches have value in the first place, which (although it is another argument) I am willing to agree to.
