Since 9/11, the US has rapidly restored their policies relating to security, specifically in airports.
When the idea of Muslim profiling was thrown out there into the open, there was a huge stir around the world.

In the past, Law enforcement, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) have repeatedly investigated, stopped, questioned and in some cases searched individuals due to the color of their skin, origin, gender, or sexual orientation.

Now, this isn’t something that just “sprang up” after 9/11, promising to “protect the citizens of the US.” It violates civil liberties and generalizes by appearance. This method has now increased in intensity, expanding its scope into religion and origin.

Racial Profiling: when law enforcement agents rely solely on race, ethnicity, national origin, or religion in deciding whom to target for criminal investigation

Racism is a belief system or doctrine which postulates a hierarchy among various "human races" or ethnic groups. It may be based on a conception assuming inherent biological differences between different ethnic groups, which would be purported to determine cultural or individual behaviour.

Racism also could be described as a strong form of ethnocentrism, including traits such as xenophobia (fear and hate of foreigners), views against interracial relationships (anti-miscegenation), ethnic nationalism, and ethnic stereotypes.
Wikipedia.com (2007)
Racial discrimination contradicts the 1776 United States Declaration of Independence, the 1789 Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen issued during the French Revolution and the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights, signed after World War II, which all postulate equality between all human beings.
Grolier Online (2007)
Racism is an extreme form of ethnocentrism, or bigotry. Racists think that they can judge a person based on his or her racial origins.
