Lots of muslims are white.

Lots of non-muslims have dark skin.

“Dark skinned male.”

Oh dear.

I’ve got the feeling this whole thing’s headed for Benghazi.

It sure seems like we’re all too anxious to profile for males in this bombing. Why aren’t we looking at women on an equal basis as the men?

I’m sure 0 is coordinating and concocting something up with Deval as we speak. Although I’d like to think Boston law enforcement won’t let them get away with it.

There is no “University of Boston”, there Boston University and Boston College, the latter a Jesuit institution. The Chinese grad student was at BU, not BC.

Interesting that the guy may have set the bomb off with a short time-delay, rather than a remote control. Possibly they were worried an unattended bag would be noticed.

African Americans have virtually no history of this type of violence so I’m going out on a limb and saying some type of foreign national.

Saying someone is dark-skinned is saying something a lot broader than “African-American”.

There are many “hues” of dark, describing many kinds of peoples both in and out of this country.

The only thing I can take from the description is that the person IS NOT WHITE.

I just heard on radio here in Florida that the initial reports coming out by the media and by the Boston Police were not official reports said a spokesman from the Department of Justice.

I looked at the pics in the article.
The guy in question didn’t look dark skinned at all.

Besides, I think he’s a red herring - there’s no way he’d be close to where the bomb was going off unless he were stupid.

Hey, we’ve got a big Amish community down here in Sarasota and they get pretty tan hanging out on Siesta Key Beach. So, I’m going with that.

I would not say lots of Muslims are white as we consider white

Bosnians

Most are swarthy....black or Oriental

Very few white as in typical peckerwood

The media seems preoccupied with pinning it on the wounded white guy who ran away instead of crouched despite the fact that police said it was a dark skinned male who dropped off the bomb.

The picture of the guy running away tells you nothing - running away was a perfectly logical thing to do. Also, you’ll notice there are other people running away. And a remote controlled or timing device, but he was so close that it blew his pants off?

There is nothing suspicious about the man in those pictures. That’s not the suspect.

the only think I’ll say about the guy running away is that it seems he started to run early....meaning that everyone else is stunned/paralyzed yet he is running....perhaps if this is the guy, he set the bomb ticking and then had 5 secs to move away from it....just saying....

“Saying someone is dark-skinned is saying something a lot broader than “African-American”.

A good example is Barack Hussein Omoslem.

50% white. 44% arab. 6% black.

It looks like the subject is wearing 511 Cargo pants and the type of shoes that a lot of US agents wear. The earpiece is typical of agents as well.

That dark skinned guy w/buzzcut, black coat, beige pants, beige boots, and EARPIECE is probably security.

See that elbow next to him? That’s his partner, wearing the EXACT same outfit. Same beige pants, same beige boots.

If these guys were here to blow stuff up, they wouldn’t have worn matching military-style pants/boots.

See photos of them both together here:

Scroll down a lot. There’s 99 photos at that link showing possible perps.

I lived through the DC Sniper terror campaign. When the cops were running around looking for white guys in white panel vans because no one expected the perps to be black.
