What did he say?

He said the suspect was near.

"The police describe the suspect as a 25 year old man or medium build, dark skinned, lover of watermelon and last seen leaving a KFC near Pauling Street. WINK, WINK"

Hector Remarkable: Best to just assume that all black people are wanted criminals. Call police if you see one, and stay indoors, dead-bolting all main entrances and exits. If you have children, and see a black person, restrain those children by any means necessary until the threat has passed and the area is fully white again. If needed, dying one's face to appear 'black' can be a healthy strategy, as seen in the historical film "Black Like Me". Many white people, however, are unaware of the differing lip dimensions which may throw off the illusion. Be sure to use phrases such as "Howdy!", and "Wassup?". Walk with a dance-like gait, and pretend that you know the black guy on the evening news, who ever that is now. Do not act racist! Rent the movie "Blacula" for further understanding.


I can confirm this.

Boo_Guy: /If it's wrong to use skin color in descriptions then I want gender removed from them as well


Actually TFA doesn't say "skin color" -- it says "racial identifications".  Actual skin color ("dark-skinned male", "light-skinned male") would be a lot more useful in identifying a suspect.

Well, I agree they don't need to say "black" three times when they report on these things.  Unless he's like, really really black.
 
2014-01-30 01:38:48 PM  
Its simple, it seems that people are saying some crimes are overreported in the media, being the ones committed by black males.

Just report all the crimes without favour, and who you are looking for. Then nobody can complain except criminals.

Seems like a wording issue IMO.  If you call someone "black", that implies "African-American", and could refer to a range of skin colors from Halle Berry to Manute Bol.  It also lessens the suspicion on other races, such as East Indians or Pacific Islanders, who may have dark skin but are not usually described as "black".
 
2014-01-30 01:46:38 PM  
No human is really black. Maybe they could use a color chart, like they have with paint, and just call out the number.
 
2014-01-30 01:48:00 PM  
I didn't RTFA, but I'mma comment anyway, especially since I've already made my joke post.

I get why people wouldn't want race in a generic description like, "black male, 5'8" to 5'11" tall, medium build." Because, seriously, that that could be anyone.

But if the race is part of a specific description, "Black male, 5'9" tall, earring in left ear, mustache, purple shirt, blue jeans, white sneakers, driving a yellow Geo Metro, etc." That's useful.
 
2014-01-30 01:48:08 PM  
There was a news station in Virginia years back that was like this.  They refused to list the race of suspect no matter what.  The worst example I saw was when they were looking for a murderer; he just killed a few family members and a neighbor and was going around shooting random people; they thought he was going after someone specific.

They gave his name, age, weight, height, desc. of hair style, clothing, car w/ license plate no., his home address, where he worked, went to high school, his church.  Pretty much everything but his phone number.

Oh, but they didn't give his skin color.
 
2014-01-30 01:49:24 PM  
Racial profiling = using race to believe someone to be a suspect = bad

Therefore, using a suspect's race to describe him/her = bad

lennavan: "[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 ^

who apparently are the ones committing the crimes most frequently, since they keep showing up in the suspect descriptions.

Edited for clarity.

You'd probably see fewer of these alerts if more people (particularly in the African-American community) were to speak up to police if they heard anything about robberies, rapes, assaults, and murders, you'd see fewer repeat offenders on the streets and thus fewer crimes. Surprisingly few crimes actually get solved in the US, particularly in areas with large minority populations.

Why haven't you stepped up to speak out against rape? less rapes would happen if clowns like you would just stand up and say, "I don't like rape".

No.  I'm just saying that citation backed the standard originally set.  Someone claimed a white guy gets shiat on if he claims he's White African American and the citation showed exactly that.

I get your point...but then I think racial identification is more important than simply skin-tone...although different ethnic groups may be of similar pigmentation...facial features typically will give it away...as such, racial identification then matters when trying to properly identify someone.

It was like this long before cops started patrolling in BDUs and surplus military vehicles.

At some point, the bargain has to be made with the police to trust them with information to solve crimes. Crime is now more of an immediate plague on minority communities than police brutality.

Clearly this is causing you to draw a different conclusion than the rest of us are.

Dragonflew: 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?


Absolutely correct.
 
2014-01-30 02:09:27 PM  
I just really hate when there's a serial killer in my area.  Like, every time I'm driving, I get pulled over, get thrown on the hood of the car and frisked.  Then they turn me over and grab my shirt.  They yell 2 inches from my face, "Did you kidnap that girl and rape her repeatedly and mutilate her and scatter her remains in the woods but leave a trophy head in your freezer?!!!"

And since I know my rights, I have to respond, "Um...which girl is this?  I can't really answer if I don't know her name."

Stupid cops always violating my white rights, tryin' to trick me into confessing stuff I might not have done.

I've never understood this with any ethnic group.  The only reason to classify yourself differently is if you want to be treated differently.  If you insist on special treatment, some people will inevitably resent it.  Human nature.

His initial post wasn't directed to you.  Where the fark did you pick up he was accusing you or all black people of knowing criminals?  I think you're searching for something to be upset about here.

DROxINxTHExWIND: And he knows this from all of the time he spends pretending to be a Marine in the ghetto.


Kinda like this post.  I'm not sure if you live in the ghetto yourself and would know better or not.  Do you?  Otherwise who are you to overrule him?  Where I live, outside of the ghetto, we have newspapers and stuff where we can read about other areas of the world.  For instance, I have at least some idea of what's going on in Georgia right now, even though I live in Illinois.

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.


You can't say capped, either.  It's very hurtful to those of us who can't wear "head coverings" of any kind due to mis-shapen skulls.  It reminds us of our infirmity.

Maybe, when such details are clear.  But even then there's a wide range of facial features for any given race category, such that highlighting those features is more important than just the race itself.
