20 years ago, 60 Minutes did a segment on the effect of race in the hiring process. They took the same resumes and put “ethnic” names on one set and “traditional” white names on the second set. In 8/10 instances, employers chose the candidate with the white sounding name. They did the same experiment about 5 years ago just before the 2008 recession hit and had similar results even against names like “Willow” and “Rainbow” - previously frowned upon as “Hippy” names.

Erika Menendez, a 31-year-old woman who was arrested on Saturday and charged with second-degree murder as a hate crime in connection with the death of a man who was pushed onto the tracks of an elevated subway station in Queens and crushed by an oncoming train on Thursday.
The victim, 46-year-old Sunando Sen, was born in India & raised Hindu. If convicted, Menendez could face the maximum penalty of life in prison.
this is foul and disgusting.
