The FBI released in February 1987 a suspect sketch of the Unabomber, later found to be Ted Kaczynski, released in February 1987, following a Salt Lake City, Utah, bombing. The sketch shows the first view of the suspect in his infamous hooded sweatshirt and sunglasses. Compare this FBI composite to a picture of the actual criminal, Ted Kaczynski. I think if the sketch was run through a profiliing app, it would reveal a suspect of Arabic descent. This sketch was issued four years before that an abhorrent Arab stereotype appeared in the Walt Disney’s “Aladdin”. It seems there may be a purpose to distributing these images in this time frame.
This is propaganda because
There is racial profiling or stereotyping when the image is also associated with maligned characteristics.
