Which leads me to this Open Letter to the TSA Administrator from August, 2014, by Emily Munson, [EDIT: which she linked to in her more recent piece from July 1, 2016. I did not dig this up, but was led to it from her own recent writing].
Munson is a right-wing blogger for CDRNYS, tracking the election, but this is an older post [Edit: At CDR’s request, I am noting this post was written for MDA, a different organization]. It argues against the searching of white, disabled, individuals by the TSA on the grounds that they are not terrorists. It explicitly supports racial profiling, instead.
I just want to say this:
- I oppose racial profiling.
- I oppose the expansion of the surveillance state.
- A call for disability rights that promotes racial profiling and expansion of surveillance is not my movement.
