Eva V
Flying back from Frankfurt last month I had to experience this new system first hand. I heard in the interview say it is not racial profiling but I would disagree with that statement. Every time you put a person asking those questions that person has their own bias. The ticket agent started her questioning with a simple "where are you flying today." But then focus more on my accent and question why I "have such a heavy accent when I speak English." How is this not racial profiling?
