“Ahmed Mohamed’s homemade alarm clock got him suspended from his suburban Dallas high school and detained and handcuffed by police officers on Monday after school officials accused him of making a fake bomb.” — The New York Times, September 16, 2015
If he’s Muslim: Is this a bomb?
If he’s East Asian: Did your parents withhold food and sunlight until you finished making this?
If he’s working class and/or African-American: Did you steal this? (Also: Do you have drugs in here?)
If he’s Indian: Did you steal this from your parents’ convenience store?
If he’s Latino: Did you steal this from the family your parents work for?
If she’s a she: Isn’t this just the cutest? Does it run on bubbles and sunshine?
If he’s homosexual: Does this clock have a feature that counts down the days until your imminent fiery doom in Satan’s furnace?
If he’s an atheist: This clock is nice, but where do you get your morals?
If he’s white: What colleges are you considering?
