Racial profiling by the police, at border crossings, and at airports is a thing.
Recently, Amir Baghdadchi of Hamburg, Michigan told a story about having a "chat" with a government agent, in a windowless room, at the London Stansted Airport.
His story is featured on this week's The Moth's podcast.
Watch his story below:
Baghdadchi says the incident occurred in 2005.
He's since replaced his oddly paginated passport.
But he says getting a new passport before his old one expired only brought more questions from officials.
