In L.A., Even the Buses Are Racist

I actually like taking the bus in Los Angeles whenever it's not too hot. It's cheaper, it's more relaxing, it gives me time to read, plus you get a little incidental exercise walking to and from the bus stop.

Little did I realize I was supporting a racist system.

At least, that seems to be the implication being made in a recent L.A. Weekly issue, which featured an article titled "Why Don't White People in L.A. Take the Bus?"

(The L.A. Weekly is one of those strange niche publications whose continued existence is a testament to the number of drug-addled part-time actors in town who need some light reading material during bouts of the munchies.)

Don't say this too loud, but apparently the bus system in Los Angeles discriminates against white people.
