Is this racist? No. 1: The yellow skin passport rejection letter
Welcome to our new, irregular game, ‘Is This Racist?’ – today we’re featuring a returned passport application that was sent to the US of America’s National Passport Service.
The man in the enclosed photo, a Mr Li, was told that his picture wouldn’t be suitable for a passport because he was ‘too yellow.’ So is that racist or not?
Maybe it’s not only racist, but also opens up possible avenues of discrimination against jaundice-sufferers, people with liver failure and residents of Springfield.
So, is it lacist? Sorry, we meant racist. Is it racist?
