racial profiling

Richard Milhous Trump

Donald Trump says he has a plan to defeat ISIS, but he is keeping it secret to be unpredictable and avoid tipping off the enemy.

If that sounds familiar, it may be because it sounds a lot like Richard Nixon's secret plan to end the war in Vietnam.

Trump repeated it again following this weekend's terrorist incidents in New York and New Jersey.  When asked by a sycophantic Fox News interviewer what he would do, he said, "We're going to have to do something extremely tough over there."

Like what? Steve Doocy asked.

After The Party, Racial Profiling

On Purim, it happened to me, writes the author. It happens to us.

Editor's Note: We are reposting this column in response to renewed reader interest in it after the shooting by police of Michael Brown, an unarmed 18-year-old, in Ferguson, MO.

Just like now, it was Purim. 2008. A young Jewish man was coming home from a Purim party in New Jersey. As designated driver, he hadn’t been drinking.

Jewish And Arab And Racially Profiled

My last post about 9/11 had nothing to do with intermarriage, but this one has everything to do with it.

Shoshana Hebshi, an Ohio blogger/writer/journalist who is both Arab and Jewish (Saudi atheist dad, American Jewish mom) is definitely getting her 15 minutes of fame.

Detained in the Detroit Metro airport on the 10-year-anniversary of 9/11 — the victim of what Atlantic blogger Jeffrey Goldberg describes as “in-air paranoia” — she has detailed the experience in a blog post that is getting picked up in media outlets around the country, no doubt because she is such an articulate (and attractive) example of racial profiling.
