We need every individual state to update its laws so that black and brown people are better protected from these terrible outcomes. Currently, so many states have legislative blindspots. Sure, "equal opportunity employment" has become a standard on paper, but our world clearly needs things spelled out better so that racial discrimination in all its forms cannot continue to play in these gray areas.

Why is our country so repulsive that you could celebrate having a new job, and then just over a month later, be phased out because your boss thinks you're too dark to be there? It is 2019. America really needs to grow up.
