At checkpoints they ask everybody if they are US citizens. Dark hair/dark skin nets a more thorough questioning and can get your car searched. I'm whiter than McCain so I haven't had problems at the checkpoints, other than that the checkpoints exist and fuckup traffic.Originally posted by: Xavier434

That is quite terrible. May I ask why you are certain that appearance was their reason for asking that question?
