“If it wasn’t because of religion it was because of race.” That’s what Irving 14-year-old Ahmed Mohamed told the public radio newsmagazine "Texas Standard" today.
And tonight, the high school freshman is scheduled to appear on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert."
Ahmed was suspended, handcuffed and taken into custody for bringing a homemade clock to school on Monday. MacArthur High School officials thought it could be a bomb, police took him away on suspicion of building a hoax bomb. Charges were dropped, but he still served out his suspension.
