    I’m just wondering why all the horror stories and accompanying pictures are of whites. I mean…where are the stories and pictures of Muslims refusing TSA’s new security guidelines. Are they happily complying or have they stopped flying en masse? For that matter, I haven’t seen any stories or pictures of any other race except for whites.

    And it makes me curious, for one if this is really just a misdirection of America’s attention while something else is going on. Like I said, just wondering.
