it's a discriminatory world, not just race, also the look

aca_100420.jpg

Few years back, Channel 7's Today Tonight showed a story how the treatment would be hugely different due to people's race. In short, the white caucasians received most smiles and best services from all different stores, as well as taxi drivers. The Aborginal apparent woman was served the worst. She was not even able to hail a taxi (no taxis would stopped for her); followed by islamic apparent woman.

Tonight, Channel 9's A Current Affair aired a similar story to the one mentioned above, but not differ by race, but how you look and dress. They sent three white caucasian girls for some shopping in higher market places. The only girl got served was the one dress glamorous. You can read A Current Affair story here.

The moral of the this blog entry? Dress better to get better serving or even better opportunities, particularly if you were not born white. That is reality. (which our friend Don refuses to believe)

You refuse to accept the results of those easy experiments, which is very easy to reproduce.
(Sorry, I corrected the timezone setting, my comment may list above yours. Blame the daylight saving.)

I would like to note that your "which our friend Don refuses to believe" is not true, but rather is yet another bizarre conclusion based on me not calling you black.
