That it happened to McCain, who adopted a daughter from Bangladesh and is recognized globally as an advocate for ending human trafficking, illustrates the challenge of being vigilant without triggering concerns about racial bias.

I tell people ‘trust your gut.’ I went over to the police and I told them what I thought, and they went over and questioned her, and by God she was trafficking that kid.”

She went on to say the woman “was waiting for the guy who bought the child to get off an airplane.”

Phoenix Police Sgt. Armando Carbajal confirmed McCain requested a welfare check on a child at the airport on Jan. 30, but said “officers determined there was no evidence of criminal conduct or child endangerment.”

In fairness, when I flew this week their is a public service message playing at the airport about human trafficking and if you see something say something. Most folks should appreciate and understand if they don't have a typical family.

I know. A little inconvenience to possibly save a child. I'm sorry that may be racist.

It was sarcasm. Human trafficking can happen in a lot of mixed race language situation. It's selfish if you don't fit the description and have to verify ya child is yours. This coming from someone who had an adopted sister of a different race.

Much ado about nothing. We should have a national declaration that EVERYONE is a racist. Then everyone can shut the fuck up and do something productive.

Maybe we could just have people sign up for an "I'm not stealing the darkies/honkies" card program? Would that be good enough for you, or do we have to go through time after time of being stopped for nothing other than general appearance?
