There’s a box for race on job applications in the US?

How the fuck does that work? Doesn’t that just give racist bastards an easy way to discriminate?


This man committed no crime. Was it insensitive to try to pull a stunt like this? Absolutely. But the police response was disproportionate — of course no one will think so NOW because of what happened one year ago, and a year from now no one will bat an eye when more and more people are arrested for “acting suspiciously.” Is possession of a rice cooker a criminal offense now?

What will he be charged with, scaring people? Headlines should read:
