The question of racism has come up in the controversy about the Dubai port deal. There is racism in some of the criticisms of this deal. But not all criticisms are necessarily racists (as much as Bush might like to imply otherwise).

Here's a simple formula to follow in this debate:

profiling people = not so good

profiling countries = not so bad

Countries are people. So it's okay to profile as long as there are a lot of them?

I have to wonder how the response would have been on both sides if it were John Kerry or Al Gore makeing the deal.
