VIDEO: A story of being detained at an airport for looking Muslim

Racial profiling by the police, at border crossings, and at airports is a thing

Recently, Amir Baghdadchi of Hamburg, Michigan told a story about having a "chat" with a government agent, in a windowless room, at the London Stansted Airport.

His story is featured on this week's The Moth's podcast.

Watch his story below:

Baghdadchi says the incident occurred in 2005.

He's since replaced his oddly paginated passport.

But he says getting a new passport before his old one expired only brought more questions from officials.
