I suspect that image would be considered offensive to student sensibilities. The picture of the firearm may cause unwarranted fear.

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

Also devastating: getting robbed on the way to class.   Sack up, black male students.

"[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

So safety should be of the second most importance, right behind not offending black men.

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

Why aren't you taking issue with saying male/female then too?  Aren't you tired of men taking the majority of the flack in rapes?

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.

Man, that's a lot of associations.  Do they each handle differing aspects of the negro experience?  Or is there some overlapping?  Should one belong to all, or can you get away with just dipping your toe in one or two of the organizations?

Can I join any if I am Irish?  Black Irish?

The suspect is dark complected and has masculine hetero-normative traits.

You cannot wrongfully identify someone as a suspect.  You can wrongfully identify a perpetrator, not a suspect.

Oh sit...I didn't think of that. And on second thought, the image is also black on a white background. Here, let me fix that...

I'm offended that they would refer to a suspect as male. How do you know that's the suspect's preferred gender pronoun?

So if "black" is coming up so often in the suspect description that multiple black groups are rallying to have it removed, do they want students instead to just assume the perp is black? I would like to know the actual ratio of black:white suspects, it has to be pretty high to cause an outcry like this.

You can't take identifying characteristics out of the police report. But "he's black" should not be probable cause to make someone a suspect.

I'd be interested to read their letter sent to the local African American community to suggest they stop committing crimes perpetuating the stereotype.  Oh wait.

absolutely agree,  it is unclear if that is the motivation here, though there is mention of the student wrongfully (mistakenly?) suspected.

It must be nice when your worst fear regarding racism is that someone may call you a name on the internet. You all should start a support group.

I go to this school. We've had a litany of emailed public safety alerts from the Campus PD after a streak of robberies last month, and almost every single robbery involved black perps.

Clearly what this represents is a monopolization of petty crime by blacks, in the same way blacks have dominated athletics and the entertainment industry, to the detriment of other ethnic groups, for example the Hmong, that live in the metro area.  Perhaps we can have some sort of car sharing program for small time crooks to bring in Hmong from St. Paul, or perhaps some sort of criminal exchange program and bus in poor white meth heads from the country to help with the hold ups.

If some white guy robs one of these groups' meetings at gunpoint, will they mention the color of his skin to police?

" unique identifying characteristics such as an accent or a distinctive piece of clothing, or the description of vehicles involved. "

But if they describe the car as a non import car wont all the poor people feel threatened?

Have you gotten your letter yet about your role in the death of those two black men from West Virginia who were shot by the old white guy? You know, because you're white.

There's no need to discriminate, son. Not everyone has hands, don't pick on the handicapped. Oh wait, "handicapped" has "hand" in it. My mistake.

"The mugger? He's just this guy..."

The code is easy to figure out on my local news. If they don't mention the skin color, then you know he's black. Simples.
