Words Mean Things by Patrick Chapin — Five With Flores
'We can go on about how that word doesn’t mean what it used to, so people shouldn’t be offended by it, but in the real world, that hurts people, particularly ourselves. It influences how we think, and not necessarily for the better.'

Ferretbrain - Musings on Race in Fantasy or: Why Ron Weasley isn't Black
Discussion of the general lack of non–white people in fantasy novels, and indeed lack of Italian-looking people playing Romans and Italians. Blames it largely on visual shortcuts, such as a red haired, befreckled boy being an earnest and reliable sidekick. Reminds me of Anansi Boys, where the majority of the main characters are black, and IIRC it mentions when a character is white, but not when they're black.

Washington Man Wrongfully Arrested for Check Fraud at Chase Bank - ABC News
Black guytries to cash a (large) cheque at a bank. Bank refuses, has him arrested for cheque fraud. They fairly quickly work out they're wrong, ring up cops to say its a mistake. Cop they call is out, so the guy spends four days in jail. During which his car (left in the bank's park) is impounded then auctioned. Lack of car leads to him losing his job. One wonders at the likelihood of that happening to someone who wasn't black.
