TSA Study: Do Americans Think Racial Profiling at the Airport is acceptable?

The holiday season is one of the most enjoyable and stressful times of the year for travel. Stratos Jets surveyed over 1,000 people about TSA screenings to learn more about how comfortable we are with additional screening precautions in the airport. Which races, religions, and political affiliations are the most bothered by the obtrusive measures sometimes employed by the TSA?

Findings:

  • For both men and women, the crotch area is the most inappropriate body part the TSA pats down.
  • Women are more comfortable with agents touching their hands than men are.
  • African-Americans were the least likely to be surprised when they’re tagged for additional screening.
  • Nearly 74% of Republican respondents said that it was acceptable for screeners to profile passengers based on race.
