Ilana Mercer writes in her May 31 WorldNetDaily column, headlined "The TSA's Trayvon Martin revenge":
I did see a tall and handsome TSA worker working-over a little old man (aged 80, perhaps). The agent was black; his victim Caucasian. It looked as though the former was examining the hunched old man’s colostomy bag. It took the agent forever. He appeared to be enjoying himself.
I lingered as long as I could, to bear witness. The cruel ordeal was still under way when I left the scene, some 15 minutes later.
Dare I say it? The girl who – no doubt by fluke – did not violate my constitutional, Fourth Amendment rights to be free of “unreasonable searches and seizures” was Caucasian.
A previous flying experience saw me subjected to – what are the odds? – the ministrations of a large African-American woman, who summoned me with a crooked finger for a pat down. In no time at all, her giant digits were on my chest and between my legs.
Amassed online is a critical mass of images in which TSA workers, often minorities, are feeling up and humiliating the most vulnerable members of white America – kids, old men and women, often infirm and incapacitated.
At 72.4 percent of the population, whites represent a much larger subset of travelers than blacks and Latinos. Obscene overrepresentation of minorities in the federal workforce guarantees the ubiquity of the disturbing visuals described.
However, if the Trayvon Martin affair has taught us anything, it is that the racial hostility at the nation’s airport is likely for real.
Remember, Mercer still kinda misses apartheid.
