Dimensio: Dancin_In_Anson: Artists rendering of the suspect?


[i1123.photobucket.com image 300x300]

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


Not to mention it portrays and unrealistic standard of thinness.

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.

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?

Later this year, the university lawyers will be met by someone how claims to represent the "Hatless Student Minority." "Just because they cannot afford or perhaps chose to not wear hats, should these students be subject to increase scrutiny by the local law enforcement? I would like to think that we live in a society where the choice of head covering or choosing no head covering whatsoever has no bearing on a student or their propensity to commit crimes." The university lawyers will beat this guy senseless and leave him in the recycle barrel with those sticky empty plastic soda bottles that are going right in to the landfill anyways. We know it. Claude, the Janitor told us "It all goes in to the dumpster". And he should know.

Later that night, some hatless person will commit a crime and the hatted community will flood the social media with comments like "Another Hatless crime. When will it end? When we get rid of the hatless. that's when." "Oh look. A crime and there's no hat. What a surprise!"

And then they'll come for the hatless and I'll say nothing. Because I have this awesome fedora that I perch just so on my unhatless head. Haul them off to Hatlessvania, I says.

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? I would like to know the actual ratio of black:white suspects, it has to be pretty high to cause an outcry like this.


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

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

You can if you call them Billy when their name is really Joe, or something.


Didn't think of that.  So yes, you are technically correct...the best kind of correct.

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.

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.
