On September 20, 2001 The San Antonio Express-News reported on local bias incidents, including a man of Pakistani descent who was asked to leave an airplane by the pilot. "The man, Ashraf Khan, said the plane's captain told him the crew did not feel safe with him aboard. Khan, 32, a businessman, said he didn't press the issue because he didn't want police involved. 'I never saw in my dreams that this would be happening to me,' said Khan, who was on his way to Karachi, Pakistan, for his brother's wedding."
