‘U’ Students Want Crime Alerts to Avoid Using Racial Descriptions

Edgar Linares, CBS Minnesota, January 29, 2014

School officials at the University of Minnesota are working with black student and facility organizations after they wrote a letter to the school’s president about the racial descriptions given in crime alerts.

The letter, sent on Dec. 6, 2013, was issued by members of the African American and African Studies, Black Faculty and Staff Association, Black Graduate and Professional Student Association, Black Men’s Forum, Black Student Union and Huntley House for African American Males.

It was directed to University President Eric Kaler and Pamela Wheelock, the vice president of University Services.

“[We] unanimously agree that campus safety should be of the UMPD’s utmost importance; however, efforts to reduce crime should never be at the expense of our Black men, or any specific group of people likely to be targeted. In addition to causing Black men to feel unsafe and distrusted, racial profiling is proven to inflict negative psychological effects on its victims.”

At Wednesday’s forum, Ian Taylor Jr., president of the Black Men’s Forum, said members of his organization feel threatened when the use of a racial description is given in the crime alerts.

“The repeated black, black, black suspect,” Taylor said. “And what that does it really discomforts the mental and physical comfort for students on campus because they feel like suspicions begin to increase.”

On Jan. 27, 2014, a formal letter was issued by Wheelock.

“I am concerned that members of your organizations and others in the University community believe there to be an increase in racial profiling,” Wheelock said. “As I stated earlier profiling will not be tolerated on campus. If there is a concern or complaint about University police practices, both Chief Hestness and I are committed to investigating the matter promptly and thoroughly.”

“I firmly believe that a well-informed community is an asset to public safety . . . I believe that sharing more information in our Crime Alerts, not less, is most beneficial in terms of public safety, especially when that information is available.

“We have reviewed what other Big Ten Universities and local colleges and universities include, and our practice of including the race of a suspect when it is available from a victim’s description is consistent with their practices.”

    Over 3300 comments on the original site and they’re all gone. I stopped to read them and 75 more would appear. So many so fast I couldn’t keep up. 99.99% saw through this whine-fest.

    I guess we won’t be having that discussion on race Eric “My People” Holder keeps speaking about.

    The letter, sent on Dec. 6, 2013, was issued by members of the African American and African Studies, Black Faculty and Staff Association, Black Graduate and Professional Student Association, Black Men’s Forum, Black Student Union and Huntley House for African American Males.

    The irony of black-named organizations demanding an end to racial identification is lost on these people.

    ”The organizations wrote that while campus safety is crucial, the profiling can be devastating for black male students.”

    ”…efforts to reduce crime should never be at the expense of our Black men.”

    At Wednesday’s forum, Ian Taylor Jr., president of the Black Men’s Forum, said members of his organization feel threatened when the use of a racial description is given in the crime alerts.

    This group is more concerned about the self-esteem of blacks than they are by the level of black crime.

    White people are constantly ‘profiled’ as ‘racists and bigots’ yet these people aren’t concerned about the devastating affects of stereotyping whites.

    Reporting a suspect’s race AFTER a crime is committed is not “racial profiling.” It’s good law enforcement. In this case FEELINGS trump facts AND public safety.

    “Progressive” liberal logic:

    The CAUSE of black dysfunction is REPORTING black crime. Ergo, the solution is to STOP REPORTING black crime. Blacks only behave badly because the media reports bad black behavior making blacks feel bad.

    It’s the goal of ‘progressive’ liberals to distort language. Control language and you control thought.

    “When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, “it means just
    what I choose it to mean- neither more nor less.”

    It’s good to know the University and campus police didn’t back down.

    • MooTieFighter

      I too commented. I seen no comments supporting this atrocity. I guess being PC is more important than the students safety.

      • One would think a race description would be helpful in crime reporting, since identifying a suspect who is still on the loose is the main reason for reporting crimes in the first place.

        Does reporting a suspect as “black” harm blacks’ comfort levels? I simply don’t care, and Channon Christian could not be reached for comment.

      • Laura Dilworth

        besides, it’s feel sorry for minorities’ month

    • We are having Eric Holder’s conversation on race, except the Usual Suspects either close news articles to comment or else delete the comments.

    • Svigor

      (I composed this comment based on the content at the CBS link, but found it impossible to post it at their technologically-backwards site, so I’m posting it here instead.)

      I would like to begin my comment by pointing out that the title for this story is misleading, implying as it does that ‘U’ students in general want to obscure the facts and make criminals harder to catch.

      I’d like to advise the (non-black) reader to stop every time “black men,” “black males,” or the like are mentioned in this piece, and imagine in its place terms like “white men,” “white males,” or the like; try to imagine white men and their collective interests being dealt with as sympathetically by the author, academia, etc.

      African American and African Studies, Black Faculty and Staff Association, Black Graduate and Professional Student Association, Black Men’s Forum, Black Student Union and Huntley House for African American Males.

      Their stance would seem to mark them as criminal, quasi-criminal, or at the very least, criminal-sympathetic organizations.

      They want to limit the release of data used in the apprehension of criminal suspects. That clearly places them on the side of the criminals.

      I don’t expect blacks to have guilty consciences over their obvious aiding and abetting of criminal behavior; long experience has taught me not to. I do expect everyone else to dismiss their criminal-sympathizing demands as absurd.

      Students and staff mailed the letter more than a month after the campus went on lockdown because of an attempted robbery at Anderson Hall on Nov. 11, 2013. University of Minnesota Police wrongfully identified a student as the suspect.

      So what? Happens all the time, c’est la vie. Obviously it will tend to happen more often to blacks, because blacks are such an outsized percentage of the criminal population. There’s an easy fix for that; blacks can drop back down to a proportionate share of the criminal population, and they’ll no longer be more often wrongfully identified.

      C’est la vie.

      On Tuesday, school officials reported there have been 25 robberies in and around the University, an increase of 27 percent over the last few years.

      The organizations wrote that while campus safety is crucial, the profiling can be devastating for black male students.

      No, this is wrong. The 25 robberies, the increase of 27 in robberies, has been devastating for non-black-male students. The effort black male students have put into obscuring the fact that black males have been disproportionately responsible for the robberies, and the increase in their occurrance, has been reprehensible.

      “[We] unanimously agree that campus safety should be of the UMPD’s utmost importance; however, efforts to reduce crime should never be at the expense of our Black men, or any specific group of people likely to be targeted. In addition to causing Black men to feel unsafe and distrusted, racial profiling is proven to inflict negative psychological effects on its victims.”

      This is clearly double-talk; one cannot honestly assert that campus safety is of the utmost importance, but cannot come “at the expense of black men.” Those two goals are diametrically opposed, because black men are an outsized threat to campus security; security is therefore always at the expense of black men, more than other groups.

      At Wednesday’s forum, Ian Taylor Jr., president of the Black Men’s Forum, said members of his organization feel threatened when the use of a racial description is given in the crime alerts.

      “The repeated black, black, black suspect,” Taylor said. “And what that does it really discomforts the mental and physical comfort for students on campus because they feel like suspicions begin to increase.”

      Members of his organization’s feelings are a distant third in importance to the feelings of the people victimized disproportionately by black males, and the efforts of security to apprehend the suspect. This is doubly so, in light of the fact that the organization’s members are simply displacing the guilt they naturally feel over the fact that black males are such an outsized share of the criminal population of this country. They should deal with the problems in their own community at the source, and stop attacking or guilt-tripping others for noticing those problems.

      Taylor is of course correct that non-black-male students are more likely to feel suspicion toward black males vis-a-vis violent crime. That’s because such suspicion is a well-informed one. Black males can lower that suspicion, over the long term, by stopping their outsized involvement in violent crime. Until then, no one else is to blame for their malfeasance.

      The letter then gave 12 recommendations to UMPD Chief Gregory Hestness on how to improve their response.

      I can give the UMPD Chief Hestness a much more efficient and parsimonious set of recommendations:

      1.) Throw the letter in the trash and totally disregard its 12 recommendations.

      “I am concerned that members of your organizations and others in the University community believe there to be an increase in racial profiling,”

      Criminals and their sympathizers usually are concerned over increased attention from police, security personnel, etc. I see no reason for the police or security personnel to take those concerns to heart.

      “I firmly believe that a well-informed community is an asset to public safety…I believe that sharing more information in our Crime Alerts, not less, is most beneficial in terms of public safety, especially when that information is available.

      Precisely. The people who want more security want the public to have more information about crime, particularly recent, unsolved crimes. The people who want less security want the public to have less information.

      It’s simple, really.

  • Voltaire was once rumored to say that you can tell who rules you for who you’re not allowed to criticize.

    Likewise, we can tell who commits the violent crime for who and which race lobbies doesn’t want us noticing who commits violent crime.

    make up 10,000 fliers warning of blacks and staple them all over campus.

  • Whitetrashgang

    The FBI crime stats on interracial crime should be a CNN special, not that it will ever happen.

    • sbuffalonative

      The ‘progressive’ liberal response is to report the statistics but then to quickly make excuses.

    • Lewis33

      We would like somebody to watch this, right? CNN gets as many viewers as three stooges rerun’s.

    • libertarian1234

      Not on CNN……..EVER.

      And if it were shown on even Fox News, Bill O’Reilly would recap the show by saying what they need are more fathers in the home, completely ignoring their natural propensity for crime and violence, but, most importantly, their extremely low intelligence, which requires them to be programmed in a lab rat fashion, because they can’t learn and still haven’t evolved beyond the stage of savagery that is absent of any feelings of compassion or remorse.

  • Jesse James

    Black whining ceases to matter the instant the majority of whites stop caring. We must be getting close to that tipping point.

    • NeanderthalDNA

      Um…gee…when’s the last time anybody described a black flash mob as being composed of anything other than “teens” or “youths”?

      • Jesse James

        We do it here all the time, Drudge for awhile was using “black” in his links but he does seem to have slowed or stopped that probably due to outside pressure.

        • NeanderthalDNA

          Other than here, of course. MSM.

          • Jesse James

            The MSM is losing viewers and readers right and left. The once mighty New York Times is on life support. FOX news though not perfect from our perspective at least tacks to right of center and by doing so is outdrawing all the other network news shows combined. No matter it’s faults FOX is certainly implicitly white which is a big step in the right direction. People like us matter because we are changing hearts and minds out there and at the very least cause thoughtful people to rethink some things perhaps they have never thought about. Every time we speak out at a dinner party, on line or in a public forum we are breaching the imaginary PC line in the sand. Sure some of us get fired right now but as more and more people start thinking for themselves and speaking out we will become so many that they can’t fire us all. The failed Duck Dynasty persecution and the recent rally to support Chick-Filet shows that we do have support out there.

            Don’t put too much hope in Fox. When the old Murdoch dies, watch his relatives give the store away to the Tribe, that’s what happens with Walt Disney Studios, also CNn use to be run out of the asouth by a Southerner Ted Turner – then CNN merged with Time Warner Inc Gerald Levin. Result:

            CNn is now the Communist News Network

          • Jesse James

            I agree jack but it isn’t the network I have faith in it is the silent white majority who are looking for information and representation that better fits their views and situation. I believe that the toxic multi-cultural sludge the media puts out and that we are increasingly surrounded by makes most whites sick. I believe many of them are sick of it and don’t consciously realize why…yet.

    • libertarian1234

      We are, but I doubt that academia is.

      They’ll be the last to circle the wagons and prepare for the inevitable attack, but that will only be after thousands of them conduct false studies to show us that we are racists for preparing to defend ourselves and that we are jumping to conclusions.

    This article was dated yesterday.

    HERE is what the university said TODAY:
    University Refuses Demand By Black Groups To End Racial Descriptions In Crime Alerts

    Pamela Wheelock says,
    “I firmly believe that a well-informed community is an asset to public safety…I believe that sharing more information in our Crime Alerts, not less, is most beneficial in terms of public safety, especially when that information is available.

    The information we share can include a complete description of suspects, unique identifying characteristics such as an accent or a distinctive piece of clothing, or the description of vehicles involved.

    We have reviewed what other Big Ten Universities and local colleges and universities include, and our practice of including the race of a suspect when it is available from a victim’s description is consistent with their practices.”

    • I think they’re running up against the Clery Act.

    • sbuffalonative

      Good for her. How long before she is forced to recant?

      • Karolina

        How long before they comply with the Black demands?

        It’s going to be hard to avoid accusations of racism, so I don’t think they will have any choice but to forego all descriptions that could be constituted as being based upon race.

      • libertarian1234

        Yes, when will we get her tearful apology concerning those she so grievously harmed with her racist comments?

  • Karolina

    Every single crime at my university in Sweden has been committed by Black males (for three years running; literally EVERY single one).

    I did not think this possible. It’s amazing the effort they put in to be this criminal.

    • Martel

      You should keep track of it, newsreports and such. After a while it will turn out to be an interesting compendium.

      • Karolina

        Haha, I’m not ready to reveal myself publicly yet; Sweden is the most liberal country in the world.

        • Martel

          Oh, I wouldn’t ask that ^^
          I’m familiar with the radical left of Sweden. But keeping news-clippings, and online articles about University crime would in the long run turn into an interesting little archive about the failure of multiculturalism. Sweden is promoted throughout the Western world as a leftist utopia, the fact that multiculturalism not only fails in Sweden but even taints its universities should turn any reasonable mind around concerning this mad experiment.

          • nBmnp

            Exactly. It is also important to save the online articles on your hard drive (for example with the “Mozilla Archive Format” extension for Firefox) because those stories tend to disappear.

            I was once browsing a years-old section of AmRen and more than half of the links to MSM sites were mysteriously broken.

          • Martel

            Articles about Islam, ethnic conflict and other politically incorrect issues tend to be pulled far more often in my experience. The BBC is always the first to take them down.

            I will look for the Mozilla add-on, thanks

          • Svigor

            I found the MAT format to not be worth the trouble. But the last time I tried it was years ago. HTML saves just fine. I usually save just the HTML, at least for news articles. My Firefox extension of choice (in this context) was “File Title,” something like that – it made FF use the page’s title by default for saving, but it no longer works with current versions. Pity.

          • Svigor

            You can usually find the articles if you have the original; some combination of headline and/or body quote in a search engine usually does the trick. That’s why I save articles I find especially illuminating.

        • RyanP

          Sweden is going to be the perfect experiment to vindicate the race realists once and for all. There is no legacy of slavery or segregation to blame. If Africans cannot make it in your tolerant and generous society then the leftists are going to have to bend over backwards to explain a why.

          • Karolina

            The current consensus is that we are discriminatory towards minorities, especially Blacks and Muslims.

            It doesn’t matter that we have no history of racism, slavery, or discrimination. We are still racists and the reason there is a significant gap between the races in our country is due to ‘White Privilege’. The fact that they came from the 3rd world and we are in the 1st World is the explanation for this discrepancy.

          • Svigor

            Whites’ intractable “phantom” racism is the best reason to forbid non-whites from living in white living spaces; we can’t allow them to become victims, can we?

The nice looking lady in charge stood up to them this time, but let’s be real and acknowledge that black complaining NEVER stops and eventually somebody is going to cave.

    [‘U’ Students Want Crime Alerts to Avoid Using Racial Descriptions]

    Yes, they just hate it when they’re reminded that their group includes some of the worst criminals in the world…..especially since they fight so hard to flim flam people into thinking blacks are incarcerated because of racism.

    I wonder if they would snap and go screaming through the halls on a murder spree if somebody pointed out with unimpeachable data that there would only be about 3-5% of them allowed in higher education if they were required to qualify like everybody else instead of given preferential treatment, because they’re black and naturally intellectually challenged.

    And, of course, large cloth banners hung around the campus declaring that, blacks have lived a near stone-age existence for thousands of years, never having invented a written language or even the wheel, would have them reverting to their true nature which are wild Mau Mau raids with machetes on whites.

    They instinctively know that the truth is their greatest enemy.

    These racist black groups don’t have any problem identifying themselves by race but wish to hide the race of criminals thereby impeding police action and jeopardizing public safety.

    The “U” would just be following the lead of the msm that put out non-sexist, non-racist PC bulletins reading:

    BOLO: The suspect is described as a bi-pedal of average height wearing clothing.

    Unless the subject is White then the name, photo and astrological sign are run on the front page of the papers for days.

        Blacks as a race are not violent criminals. They produce an alarmingly high number of violent criminals, obviously, but that’s not the same thing.

        No, what damns blacks as a race is how many of them aid and abet the criminals of their race, as described in the article, and how few of them oppose this.

        When you stop to consider how many blacks aid and abet black criminality, and how few blacks oppose them, well, now we can honestly say that the vast majority of the black race is either up to no good – criminals or their sympathizers) – or just fine with criminals and their sympathizers doing most of the talking for them.

    People need to stop using the word “Profiling” as if it is automatically a racist term. They should start using terms like “Justified” and “Unjustified Profiling.”

    How silly would it seem if White males starting whining about the sex of the suspects being issued in crime alerts. If I were VP of University Services on campus, I would issue a response using that example just to expose how ridiculous it appears on its face when speaking in other than racial terms.

  • sbuffalonative

        This is also a state where a large number of Somali refugees have been settled thanks to Lutheran and Catholic charities.

        It just so happens that the largest settlement of these wretches abuts the university along one side and it is most likely that the criminals that are terrorizing the community come from that area and are from the criminal Somali community. A community that should have NEVER been created in a White homeland.

    Black people are very strange. On one hand they have their hip hop culture where they love portraying themselves as these big tough thugs puffing their chests out. Then on another hand they are little, vulnerable, emotional victims. Which is it? I’m very confused.

    Here is the difference between black people and white people

    White guy: “2+2=4”
    Another white guy: “That is correct”

    Black guy: “2+2=4”
    Another black guy: “Hey, but that’s racist! It makes me feel bad about myself. 2+2 must now equal 12.”

    • Jack Burton

      They behave criminally, dress criminally, brag about being criminal, take pride in having been in prison… but don’t dare mention the correlation between blacks and crime! That’s hurtful!

      • Some of my friends from prison are still in prison. Every single one of them who was involved in drugs in any way went back, while I have been home ten years and off paper for seven. Drugs are the end of your life as you know it, and black guys tend to use drugs.

        • Jack Burton

          Narcotics alter the chemistry of your brain. There is no greater slavery than being neurologically altered to crave something. The thing becomes your master.

          Self-control is what separates us from lower animals.

  • Non Humans

    Well when the nonhumans off one of their non-infants, theyre essentially performing a community service by preventing future crimes and welfare dependency. If I were a DA, Id be hesitant to prosecute in light of that angle.

    • Who Me?

      Just sterilize the “parents” and let ’em go….

    Another dispatch from the Black War On Reality…

  • maxonepercent

    I don’t think I have ever seen a better illustration of how twisted modern black society has become than this story. If law-abiding blacks are offended by the large number of black criminals on campus the logical reaction would be to do something to stop the crime, to assist authorities in apprehending and preventing crimes by blacks. Instead these people demand that the crimes be hidden from the public! This is a dangerous and hateful response to a very serious problem.

    • Jack Burton

      Lucky for Whites we can use abductive reasoning.

  • Ella

    Once, I was stopped by a few joggers warning me of a flasher. I asked what he looked like. They hesitated and would not give me the description. I said give me the ethnicity so I can take precaution as I jog toward my car. They reluctantly said, “Hispanic.” For a few seconds protecting his identity seemed more valuable than my safety. Racial descriptions work to catch criminals.

    • Jack Burton

      They could have at least said light or dark-skinned, come on.

    • Erasmus

      Who needs satire when we now have real life?

  • itdoesnotmatter

    Totally twisted, but so typical of blacks’ inability to understand cause, effect, consequences or to process logic. CBS will not display the article’s comment section. They must have cut too close to the bone.

    • Erasmus

      Yet they still wonder that people who know them well think most of them are morons.

      I hope someday, if and when they “gradjee-ate from colluj,” they realize how laugh-out-loud ridiculous they really are.

  • Jack Burton

    As a male I feel threatened and discriminated against when a suspect’s sex/gender is described.

    “Male, male, male…” dehumanizes and discomforts men in our society and will not be tolerated any further. By any and all means necessary we will stop this sex/gender profiling and wrongful stereotyping of men as more violent and criminal than women, transgendered and hermaphroditic individuals.

    Androphobia must be stopped! Hey, hey, ho, ho, Androphobia has got to go. Hey, hey, ho, ho…

    • Mergatroyd

      “Androphobia must be stopped!”

      Switch to an iPhone and you’ll be OK.

  • MooTieFighter

    This is vile. These multiple black organizations have come together to oppose appropriate descriptions of perps. They commit most of the crime and now want to make it easier on the perps to get away with it. Anyone who agrees with this is simply saying they prefer to be PC over the safety of their students. VILE!

    • Erasmus

      Okay, if they don’t want the perps to be listed as “black” or “African-American,” then how about:

      – “If Obama had a son, the perp would look just like him.”
      – “Dude looked as if he owned a pair of Air Jordans.”
      – “Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton could be the perp’s father.”
      – “The suspect looked like someone you’d never see in a million years in a physics, chemistry or calculus class but like someone on the football team instead.”
      -“The perp looked liked his name might begin with “Du-” or end with “-vious.”
      -“The perp looked like he had 11 half-brothers and sisters, all with different daddies.”
      -“The perp looked as if he was an affirmative-action admit.”

    • Who Me?

      So White families all simply apply to another bastion of higher learning, taking with them their tuition, book fees, dorm and/or apartment rentals, and the patronizing of local restaurants and grocery stores, gas stations, etc…

    • Since blacks are also very heavily the victims of black crime, one would think that they would be able to figure this stuff out, but no; they really are THAT stupid.

      • Jack Burton

        Of course the criminals don’t want themselves identified, nor do they want their White victims to avoid them.

  • Who Me?

    It’s too far gone already. People already know that “youths”, “teens”, “children” means blacks under the age of ~30. Future crime alerts will look like this. “Police reports indicate that a person robbed the X National Bank at 3 pm today. Suspect was wearing a white shirt, blue jeans and dark shoes. If you have any information call XXX-XXXX.
    Note there is no possible negative indication of gender, race, size, etc. (Also no useful information.)

    • Erasmus

      Virtually everyone knows that if no race is given in the crime report that the suspect is black.

  • disqus_irCdmAu8It

    The truth hurts, but, it shall set you free. These young Blacks need to accept the fact: their type are running our country, they are killing our culture. Blacks comprise 12% of the USA population, yet, more than 75% of the criminals. They need to get their own house in order.

    • MBlanc46

      Alas, they lack the psychological equipment to get their house in order. It’s going to have to be done for them or we’re in big trouble.

  • Mergatroyd

    Blacks evolved in warm regions in Africa with plentiful food and never had to face cold harsh winters in the North as did Whites where death by starvation was ever present. Our intelligence and foresight developed as a means to cope with our brutal environment where those with less intelligent and were less prepared for the long, dark, foodless winters simply didn’t survive.

    Blacks never faced these pressures, therefore they remain profoundly stupid and with no concept of future planning, everything is “here and now” for them and they have a complete inability to see or accept the consequences of their actions. That’s why living in white societies does not suit them and they do neither fit in nor belong.

    • Who Me?

      That is why you can ask any 8 months pregnant, 14 year old black girl what she wants to do with her future, and she will tell you with complete assurance that she is planning to become a Doctor. What is really scary is that with Affirmative Action college placements and dumbed down curriculum, with a large dash of Obamacare, she might just be your granddaughter’s pediatrician someday.

  • Erasmus

    “[We] unanimously agree that campus safety should be of the UMPD’s utmost importance; however, efforts to reduce crime should never be at the expense of our Black men, or any specific group of people likely to be targeted. In addition to causing Black men to feel unsafe and distrusted, racial profiling is proven to inflict negative psychological effects on its victims.”

    Why in the hell is “black” capitalized? Looks to me as if someone’s a racist.

  • JohnEngelman

    School officials at the University of Minnesota are working with black student and facility organizations after they wrote a letter to the school’s president about the racial descriptions given in crime alerts.

    – Edgar Linares, CBS Minnesota, January 29, 2014

    A very high percentage of those black students and facility members owe their presence to affirmative action policies, and do not deserve to be there in the first place.

  • JohnEngelman

    “[We] unanimously agree that campus safety should be of the UMPD’s utmost importance; however, efforts to reduce crime should never be at the expense of our Black men, or any specific group of people likely to be targeted.

    Ah gee, you’re breaking my heart. If young black men do not like to be associated with violent crime they should stop committing all those violent crimes.

  • NotTooSwift

    You people do not see the forest through the trees. The UM students have finally discovered how to lower black crime in the US. Why didn’t I think of this decades ago?

    You merely do not report the race of the perpetrator(s) or you report the race as being White. This will not only help black males feel better about themselves but it will also make Whites feel guilty. Remember George Costanza’s famous quote to Jerry. “It’s not a lie if you believe it”.

  • Perhaps they should ask Channon Christian how comfortable she was, after having been gang-raped, while she was hog-tied and suffocating with a plastic bag over her head.

  • MekongDelta69

    Ian Taylor Jr., president of the Black Men’s Forum “repeated black, black, black suspect.”

    This was issued by the members of the:
    African American and African Studies, Black Faculty and Staff Association, Black Graduate and Professional Student Association, Black Men’s Forum, Black Student Union and Huntley House for African American Males.

    So, six blacks only organizations whining about the word black being repeated three times.

    You have to be on Left Side of the Bell Curve not to realized this as being the ultimate in hypocrisy!

    • Jack Burton

      They just don’t want Whites using black in a negative context, it’s more thought control.

  • Svigor

    He was black (hence the obfuscation).

  • Max

    What if we just describe them as nappy headed?

    • NoMosqueHere

      How about “vibrant.”

      “Two vibrant youths were arrested yesterday for raping…..”
