Remember when Forest Whitaker was accused of shoplifting from a New York City deli? (Dude, what exactly did they think the guy was pilfering?) And then stopped and frisked for it?
While it'd be really easy to assume it was at least somewhat racially motivated, the deli insists the employee at fault isn't a bigot -- just, you know, misguided.
Oh my gosh, has the world just gone completely crazy. How can a gingerbread man be construed as racist. It's a COOKIE and a character. Even though this didn't happen in the U.S. it quite possibly could have been a school in this country.
It is a given that college graduates make more money. In fact, according to a new OECD study the average college graduate in America earns over $20,000 a year more than their counterparts without a degree, making the United States one of the best countries in the world to have completed college.
But it turns out there are even more benefits to college.
