Today I had to go to the Social Security office downtown to request a replacement for the Social Security card I lost. There were half a dozen people of color waiting for their numbers to be called. It looked like I'd be there awhile. I went up to the machine to take a number. Almost as soon as the number printed, it was called. I went up to the counter and my request was processed within minutes. I'm a little concerned about preferential treatment and discrimination at the Social Security office now.
