WOW. So unacceptable and appalling. WTF.
Yes, the article does say that balloon throwing (even bleach ones) is done to women who are rushing in general, but I really doubt that claim. And all the anonymous sources saying it are very dubious. Why when there is an accusation of racism do the defenders of such racism (saying it's not happening) always stay anonymous? Stand up for what you are saying and show yourself!!!
ITA throwing balloons should be punishable...bleach balloons should be assault with a deadly weapon--whether it's done on white women or women of color.
