It is not racism, it is just common sense

Dear Richard,

thanks for your polite account on racism. In my opinion, the current situation does not leave room for any political correctness. It is true that "the majority of Arabs are not terrorists", but it is also true that the majority of terrorists come from the Middle East. it is also true that blacks don't have anything to do with terrorism. However, when it comes to Middle East terrorism, forget about political correctness. If it takes the ethnic profiling of people at airports, then so be it.
