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.

Anyone want to bet the race of the vast majority of perps?

Just another example that delusion and deception is at the core of “progressive” thought.

The only way these groups will be happy is if there is no description of the perp at all. Any description used will be called racist.

What have we done?

We have raised people who put feel good above reality. We have groomed a populace to accept the garbage pumped out by communists because it’s “fair”.

There are some terrible, dark days in America’s near future.

This has been going on already. Nothing says you’re going to get away with like a perp description reading “approximately six foot tall in jeans and a t-shirt” — round up 25% of the city.

New Crime Alert:

Some person is doing something somewhere that you might want to avoid. So be advised.

Yeah, when there’s a rapist, we wouldn’t want to make any distinction between a 70 yr old Asian female and a 19 yr old black male.

“Be on the lookout for a guy, roughly six foot tall, one eighty pounds. Dark clothing.”

*Cop shop swamped with over one hundred innocent people matching the perp description, none of them the perp.*

Tribal loyalty. Black students don’t want racial descriptions of crime perpetrators because they are predominantly of the same tribe.

Just post the race when it is something other than black.

Example: BOLO for a WHITE male...

In other words, just assume it to be so unless stated otherwise. I am guessing that is what they really want, just give it to them.

This is regular practice in television news in Miami. The little I watch reveals criminal investigations where someone is assaulted or murdered or robbed.....and the subject being sought is RARELY described in racial terms....EVEN if the victim saw the perp face to face.

Not always, but often enough to notice. The media has an obvious aversion to reporting the race of many criminals.

Yeah, and we wouldn’t want to be sexist either. Discrimination against short, tall, fat, and skinny people would be wrong. Maybe every one could just be described as average.

No problem.

It's easy to just make an assumption 100% of the time.

All they have to do is say, “The perpetrator was not caucasian, asian, or hispanic.”

All my life I’ve said that I never turned to a life of crime solely due to my personal description:
1. Height 6’5”
2. Race: Caucasian
3. Weight: North of 250lbs.
4. Build: Very large frame
5. Hair: brown, curly but thinning
The question—where could I hide from that description?
Under the “new rules” I could do my thing, and then blend into the crowds.
And some people think that the “smart” people are in the colleges and universities. It is to laugh, but it is not funny.

“Calling all cars. Calling all cars. Be on the lookout for a person. Non-specific height. Non-specific weight.”
