Wouldn't that "pile" of numbers be the ones they already announced? I don't get it.

Was it a racist action or was it a bunch more of buddy’s who all went through on the same day, was it the guys friend or is it that they didn’t offer you a ticket and it had nothing to do with you looking a little pale.

So today I go to renew my driver's license. I walk i, take a number and sit down. Now I'm surrounded by black people (this is a very mixed area) and as I sit there about a dozen white people walk in and take a number. I sit there for about 20 minutes when a group of black people walk in and start to take a number. That's when a couple of the black customers pop up and tells them not to take those number, but one of the number slips sitting in a pile near by that someone had pulled out.
Basically, the black customers purposely let all the white customers take high numbers, while they helped each other take from the pile of actual numbers being called by the front desk which were all much lower.
I just said, "thanks a lot" and walked out. I'll try again tomorrow. It just goes to show that we all experience racism.
I think that is hilarious - blacks practicing there own form of grass roots leveling of privilege.
