Heard on the news this morning.  IU campus police on lookout for potential rapist.  Thin, white male with a dark hat. On a college campus?  Good luck with that description.

I've noticed a lot of them don't even mention race anymore turning suspect descriptions from vague to utterly useless.

Even my local newspaper when printing a story about a suspect quite often leave out the race of said individual. Something to do with not offending anyone.

Welcome to Toronto where you're not allowed to use apparent race to describe a perp.
If we can just get rid of that pesky apparent gender, we'll have a truly completely useless PC reporting system which won't offend any snowflakes, or be of any actual use either.

Male suspect was wearing brown pants and a hat. (actual description of perp in Toronto).

*Yawn*

Yeah, we get it. The blacks have no reason to be "sensitive" and the PC culture is putting us all in danger because common sense things like identifying suspects by race may insult us. You don't have to dog whistle it anymore, clown. There's a man running for Senate who said America was great during slavery. Your side no longer has to bite your tongue. So, stop biatching that nobody will allow you to be racist. We get it.

Giving the most accurate descriptions of alleged perpetrators is far more important than sensitivities. Your race is an important part of your identity and I highly doubt you don't ever use race as an identifier when having a discussion or identifying someone. It is hard not to because it is a part of who we are. You act as if the mere mention of race is racist.

If they're doing it "quite often" but not all the time, you can be pretty sure they just don't know the race of the suspect.  Not everything is the fault of the PC police.

My local newspaper (Newsday) is a complete rag. They misspell, misquote and never ever print the "whole" story. Quite often the reader's comments always, mentions that the High School intern/reporter always leaves out the suspect's race. It's not that the newspaper doesn't know the race, they don't want to get involved with being Un-PC.

Thank you for whitesplainin' that to me. It never occurred to me that identifying someone by race could help capture him. I usually just tell you the color of a man's hat. I was raised right.

That is sadly true of the game, however it does show that the more we can narrow a description down, how much easier identification becomes. If you played the game and never mentioned race, you are creating an artificial handicap. The time it takes to Guess Who is greatly increased by not using race as an identifier, just the same gender is.

The problem comes when the identifier is abused. If the perpetrator of a crime is a 6'0 white male in his teens with red hair, it doesn't make sense to stop 5'0 males or 6'0 women, and surely does not make sense to stop someone of another ethnicity. Further, it does not give you a right to presume guilt of all 6'0 white males in their teens with red hair. The more identifiers the better and the less chance that innocent people will suffer, and the suspect will be apprehended quicker.

Without giving the identifier of race, you conversely allow people to use pre-existing biases. If for example some homegrown white extremists blew up a train and fled the scene, surely you would want to let people know to be looking for white guys, less you would end up more than likely with a witch hunt of people assuming it was middle-eastern Muslims and harassing people.

Ha! Sorry that I made you write all of that bullshiat that I'm not going to read. Appreciate your efforts, schooling me on the virtues of making good descriptions that include race. Now, you can print this thread out and use it to wipe your ass. I'm not about to dignify this foolishness as if PC culture is making it harder to capture criminals because blacks are sensitive. Stop trying to blame the blacks for sensitivity and focus on the profilers and bigots who created the conditions.
