Racial profiling is great, and we should use in the USA, but the libtards call it racist. However, since the libtards run the university they give 200 points bonis to some candidates on their SAT scores, and lower prices. That's why I am not a libtard, as they are hypocrites. Oh, but they can call you racist too, if you oppose their propaganda. Oh, I am sorry, they call you a rapist too.

Death in terrorist attacks are much more geo-politically and socio-economially influential than traffic accidents, which may eventually cause way more death in war and other subsequent incidents, so i would argue that not all death-in-accidents are equal unfortunately.

Muhammad Abdullah (10 hours ago)
one of the interesting fact is that you need security when you are afraid of someone or threatened by someone ; and this means that you have done something wrong and injustice to them(whom you are afraid of) and now you are afraid of their revenge. now apply this to israel........ pretty simple right?
Muhammad Abdullah (10 hours ago)
5:22 oh so Israel is feared of Pakistan; off course they should be (remembering arab israel war)

put bulletproof armor in the wall that separates the cabin and cockpit and then give every passenger a handgun before takeoff (with hollow points to not go through the target and damage the plane). I can guarantee even terrorists will not be stupid enough to try and hijack what is effectively a flying texas gun club

why hijack a plane when you can smuggle tons of drug and weapons/explosive to cause more damage? Crashing a plane is not as effective as leaving a bomb and surviving and at the same time killing many.

As a Israeli arab(I live in a Jewish area) I can tell you every time I go abroad I need to show up to the airport about 4-5 hours before the flight because I know Im gonna be harassed interviewed and searched for hours while I watch other people just walk past me By the way you forgot that in Israel arab citizens aren't allowed to work in the airport security or at the shops at the duty free
Adam Jaber (4 days ago)
+Matan Omer no because law is law and it shouldn't be inforced differently for different citizens Also plenty of arab airlines carrying mostly arab citizens (usually to arab countries) leave from the ben gurion airport so considering all the hate crimes Jewish citizens committed against arab citizens Jews should have hard time at the airport as well Just to be clear I don't think that's true but I do believe a collective that is mostly made of good and law keeping people shouldn't be punished for the actions of a few rotten apples It is known that the police keeps a legal file on each citizen and I believe it is only right for airport security to decide what's the danger level each person presents and how much he should be looked into according to those files (whether his Jewish or arab)
Matan Omer (4 days ago)
Adam Jaber you don’t think it makes sense? Giving the hate arabs have fir Israelis and jews and the amount of terror attacks against israel?

Profiling is fine if it can save lives. next time you don't like someone profiling you, remember, imagine if he/she didn't profile the bomb carrier right behind you, you will literally be the first person to die on that plane. Or would you rather not be profiled and instead be dead? well, fine by me.

Sicname _ (12 days ago)
US citizens are only willing to give up civil liberties (such as invasive pat downs) in the light of a recent attack. This is why we were quick to adopt the secure/non-secure segregation of the airport terminal, the 3 oz liquid rule, and removing shoes after 9/11. But rumors of having to place books separately in bins to go through the x-ray machine are met with resistance because there has been no recent attack to justify the additional search. It is a complicated balance to maintain for the TSA and airport security.

No offense, and i don't mean this in any religious slight, but if Israel asked me about my car and personal life, i would ask him to fuck off. They have 0 right knowing that. As for them being openly racist, that's just sad, but at least they say it openly, as opposed to here in the US, where they "randomly" target you. (the same thing but lying saying it was random)
Matan Omer (4 days ago)
Murphy the Turtle its not racism if it makes sense. If someone rubbed a bank now- would you go question all the elderly and kids as harsh as you’ll question the young men? ... exactly

Pixel Bytes (28 days ago)
If there's a trend you should act to that trend, not ignore it. if there's a demographic you know causes the most issues you should check them the most often. If you know people keep money in banks you'd rob the bank, not a KFC
18booma (29 days ago)
Yeah, obviously the racial profiling works. I think america should start a stringent racial profiling system for when white guys (especially young guys) want to purchase a gun. You'll see a sharp drop in mass-shootings.
18booma (29 days ago)
And maybe when they want to buy a vehicle/get a licence, to make sure they aren't neo-nazis.
Tim Jumpertz (29 days ago)
I usually really enjoy your videos, but in this one I was somewhat shocked about the seemingly unreflected pro-flight attitude that you show. Please consider and comment on the environmental consequences too, instead of just calling flights the „safer“ way of travelling for everyone.
z170x99 (29 days ago)
but with the billions of dollars saved you can save so many staving afican kids like 10 million of them. think about that would you rather save 3-4 rich peopes live or 10 million poor kids that are starving i'm not saying that those 3-4 people should die but just think about it

If anyone's confused, 'looks suspicious' in Tel Aviv airport is synonymous with 'being Palestinian'. Their 'security' measures are simply racial profiling. There's a reason the far right loves the Israeli government.

Perkele Itse (1 month ago)
There's absolutely NOTHING "racist" about these profilings. Of COURSE you're gonna be more careful with arabs with this example, arabs are mostly muslims, muslims are a problem all over the world. Can't fucking stand idiots who bitch and moan about "racism" at every possible point. Profiling exists for a statistical reason! It's the same why blacks are pulled over more in the states, FACTS. Black men are statistically more prone to violence and crime, it's a fucking fact.

TSA in US has killed air travel; I would rather drive 200 miles than deal with 30m delay at ATL security. (prob better for sanity). TSA is security theater; any smart guys are looking at new options- not prior tests.

Are flights really safer than other means of transport? I thought the stats showed that rail travel was slightly safer than flying in the UK (though it's marginal and many other rail systems are somewhat less safe than flying).

I don't believe airport security profiling is actually "illegal". I'm sure someone can pick out rare instances in their argument against the process, but If done properly, it's the best tool at our disposal. As you stated, this would be challenging in the gargantuan airports, but I say dont half ass it because of feelings. Love your videos man, keep up the good work!

Why are people so surprised by Israel racially profiling? You have to face the facts and the facts are that their neighbors are terrorists ridden, Arab nations that with for Israel to not exist. Israel is under constant terrorist attack by Arabic terrorist organizations, and it would eventually be killing their own citizens if they didn't consider these facts

Don't get me wrong, profiling does suck but it also works. Law enforcement doesn't look at you the same way your mom does. You represent a statistic otherwise it would be near impossible to assess so many people when you're treating them like the most handsome/beautiful and special boy/girl in the whole wide world!
