It's official; the federal government hates white people. The Transportation Security Administration, which hires all those airport screeners, proudly details its pattern of discrimination:

...This screening force is not only prepared to deliver world class customer service and world-class security, but is highly diverse and representative of the face of America.

As of Oct. 9, some 22 percent of TSA's screeners are African-American, a number twice that of the current civilian work force population. While 8 percent of the American work force is Hispanic, TSA's work force is already 11 percent Hispanic. Our numbers for hiring Native Americans reflect the labor force. Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders account for 4 percent of our screeners, compared with 2.8 percent of the civilian workforce. Although whites make up 77.9 percent of the workforce nationally, only 58 percent of TSA's work force is white.
