ABSTRACT
The article discusses the impact of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 on the racial profiling of Arab Americans in the United States. Racial profiling, the process of singling out people based on their race or ethnicity for police or other security stops, has been an issue of public debate in recent years. An intersectional analysis is used to evaluate the practice of racial profiling in the African American, South Asian American, and Arab American communities. The paper focuses on the racial profiling which occurs due to a combination of racial and gender identities. This relationship between men of color and the law enforcement of the state can also have an adverse affect on women of color. The study posits that private individuals engage in racial profiling which leads to hate crimes.
