Does that still happen?  If so, how many extra points are awarded?

Do you have any evidence that anything like that ever happened?

I know you get extra points at the neighborhood bar for being Irish.

Yes it happened and I'm pretty sure it still does. I took the
postal exam years ago, minorities got 5 extra points and so did vets.
I think some handicaps got 5 points to because I know several people
there were spotted 15 points.

The minorities part is horseshit.
