The incident with Ahmed Mohammed being handcuffed for bringing a homemade clock to school is sad…and terrifying. It’s another stark sign of how racism is alive in the United States. In one of the news articles it says that this highlights the problem the south has with racial profiling. However, I disagree. I think this could and would happen in any state, especially with the anniversary of Sept. 11 only four days ago. This situation is a sad commentary on our nation!
