Graphic examples of the racially-based social caste system
Advertisements [?]
Regular readers here know that society at large has no problem condemning the overt and obvious acts of hate and bigotry; but that's like acknowledging that the sun rises in the east, the sky is blue, water is wet, and the Pope is Catholic. All no-brainers.

Please post here articles and stories of graphic examples of where being not-white overshadows one's professional or academic credentials. This is to show that even in the 21st Century, the past roughly 400 years of bad attitudes didn't magically disappear with the Brown vs. Board of Education court ruling, the "I Have A Dream" speech, and the signing of the Civil and Voting Rights Acts.
