It should be like this: If you don't want to go through the scanner for any reason, you don't fly. Period. Thank the Muslims for all the security.

There's a lot of terrorists that don't look Middle Eastern. That Nigerian underwear bomber dude, for instance. The Chechen Muslims are probably whiter than you are. Then there's the Filipino's and the Al Qaeda cells in Europe composed largely of whites, like that blond Swedish chick they busted recently. So before you say any more stupid s-h-it, why don't you get your facts straight? If you don't like the security measures, then don't fly. It's that simple.
Still a danger

All these pat-downs and scanners are useless because the terrorists know that they can easily smuggle a pound or two of explosives on an airplane by having the bomber shove it up his/her a$$.
The terrorists deployed the so-called "Underwear Bomber" last Christmas because they knew that pat-downs did not include checking the genital area. Pat-downs and body scanners are still ineffective if the terrorists decide to take it to the next level and deploy so-called "A$$ bombers."
