I’m so sorry that you didn’t read this, and understand it. That isn’t racist in the least. What were the witnesses supposed to say that you wouldn’t consider racist? Dark colored clothes? Dark colored mask? Very dark gray sweatshirt? What would please you?
Quit being so picky. Really racist people and people who try their best to start bs, are a big part of the problem.

Yikes. That description is pretty, pretty racist.

You know it’s not racial profiling after the crime is committed right?

How is that racist? They were giving a description of the suspect????? Explain to me how they could describe somebody who just robbed a place at gunpoint wearing a black sweatshirt black facemask and was black without hurting your feelings? Get real. People need to pull their heads out of their a**es!!!!!

Be smarter. Get out of your feelings and take your own head out of your own ass. This is obviously the comment of a racist. Race bating. You do know people do that right? I sense hints of sarcasm in his statement and he bated replies. Also don’t be insensitive and ignorant. There are real people actually being discriminated against for nothing. This is also why I know the comment had no sustenance. If you want to get fed up about something and fake care that you are so tired of something (sensed in your reply). Be tired of that. Take up for that or recognize and call BS i.e. the idiot from above and call them out on it. Say nice try.

Natasha…I don’t think ‘sustenance’ is the word you were looking for.

The comment was meant to poke fun at the article for using the word ‘black’ several times in the suspect’s description. Often, the descriptions of Black perps are so PC vague they are of no use. Let’s hear you counter that fact using an argument with substance.
