FWB

"FWB" may become a familiar acronym for "Flying While Brown," an outgrowth of the DWB/Driving While Black (or Brown) of previous decades.
The full name's also the title of an op-ed in Britain's Guardian of London regarding the refusal of AirTran airlines to permit a Muslim-American family to fly with them. Author of the op-ed is Wajahat Ali, a former student who, since earning his J.D. at California-Davis, has taken up a successful writing career. (hat tip)
