Jarrar v. Harris, et al. (Ethnic Discrimination)
Two Transportation Security Administration (TSA) officials and JetBlue Airways paid Raed Jarrar $240,000 to settle charges that they illegally discriminated against him based on his ethnicity and the Arabic writing on his t-shirt. TSA and JetBlue officials prevented Jarrar from boarding his August 2006 flight at New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport until he agreed to cover his shirt, which read “We Will Not Be Silent” in English and Arabic, and then forced him to sit at the back of the plane.
