I saw CNN this morning. One of the anchors interviewed the Toledo Public Safety Director.
The anchor said, "'Riot' is such a racially-loaded word. When whites riot it's called a 'melee'." (WHAAAT???)
That left the two of them looking at video footage of an all-black crowd setting fire to a building and not being able to describe what they were looking at! I wish there was a transcript. It was politically correct CNN at its looniest.

Maybe the nice anchor would like to point out the last time that has happened.

("Political Correctness is the handmaiden of terrorism" - Michelle Malkin)
Reminds me of a clueless parent watching their 2yr old pitching a ring-tailed fit, tearing up the living room and saying...
"Oh look how well he expresses himself. We really shouldn't have left those breakables out where they got in his way."
He must never have heard of soccer (football) riots. Or maybe he was just lying.

........... crowd setting fire to a building........
I'm sure it was just a controlled burn.
Probably not unlike we do out here on the prairie...when we burn pastures.
