Last week, at Irving MacArthur High school in northern Texas , a 9th grade student named Ahmed Mohamed was arrested for bringing a home made clock to school. The reason he was arrested was because the school staff thought that his home made clock was a bomb.

This incident has gone viral on the internet.

Was it racial profiling, or did the clock kind of look like a bomb?
