    How does one prove they are Asian or Chinese?
    They surely did not go by looks… Did they need to show something to sit there?

    To Chad- Your a moron, the plaintiff won the case but the City got the verdict becuase the judge decided it wasn’t part of a custom or policy.

    To Diana- That was the first case. They had an illegal policy. Then then tried to change it afterwards. They did go by looks, then as mentioned they changed it. That isn’t the case of the above however though.
