Most truckers are not sensitive enough to PC issues like racial profiling. They would probably get suspicious if they saw 5 Arabs with rocket launchers standing around at the end of an airport runway. No, unless they all agree to listen only to NPR while they drive, this will not be acceptable. No more Rush or Charlie Daniels or even Willie Nelson. Just NPR 24 hours a day mile after mile. Then, and only then, will they have their awareness lifted and senstivitiy enhanced so they can understand the real issues that face America today.

I would guess many of the truckers are way ahead of the curve as compared to their union leaders as far as keeping their eyes open and I would also guess that after years of listening to Rush and other conservative talk show hosts many of these same truckers are ahead of their union leadership with regard to conservatism. One of the few over the road truckers I used to know was extremely well informed and very conservative. He might even be a freeper.
