Civil rights groups suggest compensation for victims of racial profiling on planes
by Hugo Martin
Airlines, airport screeners and civil rights advocates all agree that air travelers should not be profiled based on their race or religion.
Now two civil rights organizations are suggesting that airline passengers who are unfairly profiled should be compensated by the carrier.
Muslim Advocates and the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund wrote to the U.S. Department of Transportation this week, asking the agency to investigate and publicly report all cases involving Muslim or other minorities who say they were detained, questioned or removed from planes based on racial or religious profiling.
