"Dateline (NBC) took a local issue and made it into a national investigation: Dozens of Chicago women -- all African American -- had accused the U.S. Customs Service of singling them out for strip-searches. But was it true?.... Dateline proved that -- even in this day and age -- black women were, indeed, singled out for strip-searches at a rate many times greater than any other race or gender. What's more: Black women were the least likely group to be found with drugs."
