"Some Real Shock and Awe: Racially Profiled in Detroit"

This is a link to a blogpost that came out on the 12th.

In the post, Shoshana Hebshi, a half-Arab, half-Jewish woman who was flying on 9/11 (of this year), details her experience: she was handcuffed, taken off the plane, put into a cell, strip-searched, and interrogated for several hours because of an anonymous tip that two men in her row were spending too much time in the bathroom.

Her post is worth a read; it's beautifully written and quite thought-provoking.

All y'all have a good day.
