MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – 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. 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. It was directed to University President Eric Kaler and Pamela Wheelock, the vice president of University Services.

Certainly we can better identify criminals by giving as few details as possible about their appearance. Maybe these concerned Black organizations should be working to lower black crime rather than trying to hide it?

I don't think they should be allowed to identify the sex of the perp either.

The world has always had a certain number of fools in it, but in the past someone could push for something like this and the adults would respond rationally. Something along the lines of “not just no but He** no! Get back to class.”

i.e. it is those making the decision that are the problem - if they acquiesce, that is.

They sure seem to have a lot of racist organizations tied to the university there. I suppose if a bunch of them emerged with “White” or “Christian” in their names, the school would fall all over itself trying to get rid of them or limit their influence.

Yet feminists are okay with rape victims being wary of ALL men (not just because of this case but because all men are born with some kind of Original Sin of being male).

It’s consistent with the anal exams of 80 year old grandmothers at the airport and exemptions for Islamists who find it to be an afront to their religious beliefs.

so if the boys from Duke really do commit a crime on some stripper, will they remain consistent with their reporting preferences?

These liberal college students are so naïve I can see the victims themselves agreeing with this. Kids are getting jumped and having their laptops and cellphones stolen every day by the same group of black and Somali thugs but they’re been conditioned to accept it lest they be accused of racism. I told the kids I know there to start carrying a weapon and you’d think I suggested they commit murder.

How about this? How about we don’t mention the race of the criminals at all.

Unless of course they are white. Now THAT would be news!

Lets just report the name of the one arrested was Jaquerious Mohammed Jackson and let the assumptions fall where they may.

(Sheesh)

No race mentioned in these associations, eh?

Trying hard to deny the obvious proven fact: Blacks account for half the crime, but only a small percent of the population.

Political Correctness will eventually kill us all.

Isn't there also a movement to stop charging so many Blacks in schools because the charging rate is so much higher than all other racial groups...must be racism, eh?

This is just Black KKK racism....blacks need to start taking responsibility for their own actions...that would result in fewer blacks being the subject of crime alerts

Why not leave out the sex of the perpetrator? Why have any description at all?

Have you been on a college campus lately? Sometimes, it is really hard to tell, particularly around the Women's Studies or Queer Studies Department. On the other hand, when the weather is warm, sometimes it is way too easy to tell, if you get my drift.

The press is starting to mention race - as they should - in things like the knockout game... it's time they stopped the cover-up..

The reason for the change is conservatives cracked the code. In the past when the perp was black the press would say nothing. When the perp was white they're not only mentioned race, they'd run a picture. That's how we knew a perp was black - no mention of race...

If these black male students don't want to be identified with crime, they need to work on making FEWER black criminals in the black community. They could start by writing Holder and asking him to uphold the laws on the books... then they could tell the Homeland chief that it's illegal to break into this country... then tell Obama the laws of the land are created in Congress not in the office of a dictator. (culture change time)

Maybe if they ditched the thug life culture, stopped committing a majority of the crimes in the area, they’d stop getting “stigmatized” from all the notoriety...

School officials said the murderer is Mohammed Mohammed Washington Demaracellus Jones. He is 6'8", wears 30-40 gold chains, a hoodie, and drives a Cadillac. He is often seen playing basketball, has both arms tattooed (although NONE can be actually read or interpreted) and has a wife, three former wives, 8 girlfriends, and 26 illegitimate kids.

School officials emphasize that the suspect is not to be considered any particular race.

I can see the campus alert text now.

Suspect on campus. Be on the alert and contact campus security if you spot anything.

What could possibly go wrong?

Yeah, and to flesh it out a bit, there would be something on the forum or front page that has “top posts of the day”.

Since it’s custom software, though, it might be quite a chore to add a feature like that.

It seems like the concerns of the various African-American organizations can be accomodated easily enough. If a suspect is white, Asian, or Hispanic, say so. If he or she is not one of those races, don't say so.

This way, the concerns of the race-based organizations about the race-based reporting can be satisfied, and the more intelligent among the student-body population will learn to read between the lines. (It'll be a very helpful skill in their post-college life, when they have to deal with similar MSM race-based evasions.)
