9/11 profiling

Today on Your Call: Twelve years after 9/11, how has racial profiling changed?


On today's Your Call, we’ll talk about what it’s like to be profiled in the continuing war on terror.  Arab and Muslim Americans still make up a disproportionate percentage of the no-fly list.  So has anything changed in who is targeted and how?  And what is the right way to evaluate security threats while protecting everyone's rights to freedom and privacy? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Hana Baba and you.
