Bollywood superstar SHAH RUKH KHAN, addressing a group of students at Yale University. Khan was detained by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol officers for more than an hour at White Plains Airport in Westchester County, NY.
In 2009, Khan — who is Muslim — had also been detained by federal officials at Newark Airport while on his way to promote a film… about racial profiling of Muslims after 9/11.
American embassy officials in New Delhi issued an apology; U.S. CBP officials wouldn’t discuss the case, because, you know, why discuss racial profiling if you don’t have to?
You should have to.
