Four men from Brooklyn trying to fly home together after a few days in Toronto last December have filed a $9 million federal lawsuit alleging that they were racially profiled as Muslims and removed from an American Airlines flight because the captain felt uneasy.
According to New York Daily News, two of the four men are Bangladeshi American and Muslim, one is Arab American and Muslim, and one is Sikh American. All are U.S. citizens in their 20s. Two other friends — one who is Pakistani American and another who is Hispanic American — were allowed to remain on the plane.
