The Lonely Hearts Club: Ethnic Breakdown at US Airports

December 23rd, 2011

If you ever manage to get through the security measures in good time at an international airport in the United States, take a look around at the demographic composition of those around you. Almost everybody travelling internationally (and most of those domestically) will be Caucasian, military servicepersons aside. Almost everybody serving these people coffees, burgers, newspapers and so on will be Black, Hispanic or Asian. This is not a coincidence.
