2. Reihan Salam on the soda ban and the asymmetry between mildly annoyed soda consumers and public health advocates who have a vested interest in demonizing soda.
3. Business Insider carries the story of a pending racial discrimination lawsuit being leveled against clothing retailer Wet Seal. The gist of it is that at least three former store managers are angry that they were told to employee fewer black females. Sort of the complete opposite of my girlfriend’s experience as a manager at Abercrombie and Fitch where she was told *constantly* to hire African Americans. I was even recruited to keep an eye out for potential employees. I’ll cut to the chase here though – I’d guess that the reason that Wet Seal wanted to decrease its percentage of black employees is to cut down on shrink and poor customer service.
4. FBI determines that George Zimmerman’s pursuit of Trayvon Martin was not motivated by racial bias. No shit.
5. News we knew. Shoes make a strong first impression. I’ve noticed that I notice what shoes people are wearing more than I used to. I also make judgments about those people based upon the shoes they are wearing.
