Birmingham MP Khalid Mahmood said it was disgraceful the pair seemed to have been judged on their skin colour.
They weren't being judged by the color of their skin, they were being judged by the percieved content of their character.

The truth is that for the last 10 years at least, ethnicity(skin color is a surrogate) and religion are the two factors that correlate most precisely with terrorism In mathematic terms, the correlation is phenomenal. It is therefore not unreasonable to equate potential terrorism with observation of those factors. You can say "racism" but cannot deny it is true. Until those facts change Arabs and Muslims will not be given the benefit of the doubt. This should be an impetus ti then to work against terrorism. Whining about Racism will not do ant good.
