The holiday season is in full swing and lots of Americans are going to be passing through airport security over the next month. Unfortunately, this means that a lot of us are going to be dealing with the most unpleasant aspects of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), including pat-downs on ourselves and our loved ones.
Many Americans might believe that the safety the TSA gives us is worth the occasional invasion of other’s privacy, but how do we feel when that invasion happens to us? Stratosjets.com surveyed 1,000 people across the country about how they feel when their loved ones are subjected to a TSA pat down. In a series of infographics, they broke their findings down by gender, race/ethnicity, political party affiliation, and religion. Their research also delved into how these groups feel about racial profiling. Brace yourself, there is a lot of American ideological division visible in these images.
