“To put it mildly, the explicit targeting of Arabs and Muslims by government policies, based on their identity as opposed to their criminality, contradicts claims to racial progress.” (Alsultany, 2012, p. 6)

This image is portraying the double standard between White people and color. This image associated with the quote ties directly with the concept of racial profiling. The assumption that individuals of a particular race, ethnicity, national origin, or religion are more likely to engage in certain types of unlawful conduct than are individuals of another race, ethnicity, national origin, or religion is ridiculous and still exists today. This happens in media and out in the real everyday life, people find a reason to label Arabs and Muslims negatively and criminalize their image. Another reason why it would be ignorant to say we live in a post-racial society.
