ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the racial profiling by the U.S. government on Muslim looking citizens including Iranians which are frequently involved in private discrimination. The move formed a bad image to people with Middle East descent by viewing them as outsiders who do not belong to the American society. The Iranian community is one of those who are affected for they are assumed as one of those responsible for holding hostages and for terrorism. They are regarded as dangerous and undesirable and their outsider status led to their lack of identity citizenship and to depreciation of their formal rights.
