    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.

    “[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.”

    so, unless the report specifically mentions a white suspect, we are to assume it's a black suspect?

    Most people assume it's a darkie anyways. They should only label the message with race if it isn't a spook. :dontknow:

    If most of the crimes are committed by Black men, and they don't like to feel targeted . Maybe they shouldn't commit crimes. :dontknow:

    The ugly truth is the enemy.
    They like this scenario better: in all TV commercials, crimes are being committed only by white devils.

    I disagree with this. If there's no photo of the assailant available and the assailant is still at-large, a description (as detailed as possible) is absolutely necessary for public safety.

    That's why is totally absurd, Heaven forbid we make anyone feel uncomfortable. yesterday a black man forced his way into an 81 year old womans home, and shot her. the bullet went through her and her home and hit the neighbors house. Not one mention of race. We all know the guy was black. I mean It was in Oakland.

    Well, also, in fairness, you've got to make sure that an actual witness is the source of the identification, but even then, witness identification is always awful. You also can't go by what other people "say" without establishing they were actually there, at the scene, when the crime occurred and admittedly, it could take some time to establish whether or not a witness is reliable.

    Every morning on the NYC local news there is pristine surveillance video of some thug American on the loose doing horrible things.
    I'm envisioning the day when that is deemed racist and not shown on TV anymore.
    Most times the shit lefty media show these videos because the thugs have crossed the line and are wreaking their thug havoc in the safe whitey neighborhoods....:coffee:

    The vast majority of piece of shit liberal media does this already... it's a fucking travesty to not give the most detailed description of the suspect as is available...

    Fuck this world, we're doomed.

    Because people never say an assailant was black and they weren't right?

    Exactly. That guy should be kicked out of college because he's a moron.
