There's a reason more astronauts have come from Ohio than any other state.
It really makes people want to GTFO the planet.

I wonder how many black delivery guys have had the police called on them by racists that assume they're porch pirates or buglers.

Not just the same state, the same town, too.  Toledo sounds racist all hell.

I seem to recall there was a real issue in the late 90s early 00s with people buying similar clothes to UPS & stealing stuff.  I'm honestly surprised I haven't seen anything about it in the last few years with all of the porch pirating going on.  I don't know, maybe it still happens regularly enough but people don't pay close enough attention to see they're fake.

The problem is they hired white people, when brown people look better in the UPS outfits.

In another July 2016 incident, a black worker said he had received a group text message from white employees joking about buying a noose with money they won from a lottery.

I wonder where those white employees thought they'd have to go to buy a noose.  Maybe the noose-stand?  Y'know, so they could get a good, factory-made one.

Wouldn't a porch pirate playing the bugle draw unneeded attention?
