Does it mean that now, when thwy will call 911 they will answer like:
1 - Describe thief please, what's his skin color, his clothes?
2 - Skin color? Hmm... I can't tell this, sorry!
What do you think guys?
Weird how liberals create what they believe is a utopia, it goes the way they plan and then they realize that isn't the way so they flee places such as CA, go to CO to ruin it there and then look elsewhere. I mean, same ideas over and over again yet they expect different results?

Here's a description for the University of Minnesota:

Person, I think it wasn't a dog/cat, just robbed me. It (we're not sure if it's even human now) was between 4'0" and 7'7", 80-400 pounds, may or may not have been wearing glasses, may or may not have had a hat on, may or may not have been wearing clothes.

Clear as mud? Great!

Places like this reap what they sow. This type of thought is what has caused us to decline as a country, everyone is more concerned about being politically correct and sensitive than they are about doing the right thing.

What's next? A rule book we need to read and study before we report a crime against us?

Are we not living in the information age? We have the world at our finger tips on our cell phones but this university wants to take a step backwards?
Racial profiling is a tough thing to overcome and is not fair BUT..

If I was a woman and there was an Asian rapist with a hoodie and a backpack running around campus I would want to know that I had better watch out for him and not just any guy with a hoodie and a backpack.

Humans are visual creatures and the number one thing that we notice first is a persons skin colour. Trying to supress that in the name of a politically correct stance is a recipe for danger and pretty stupid.

All I know is that newspapers like the LA Times, NYT and Washington Post and online news sites like CNN, Yahoo News and USA Today already practice not reporting the race of the suspect if he is black. They will gladly report if the suspect is white, Hispanic or Asian though. So the next time there is a news report and the article does not mention race of the suspect you already know the race if it was omitted.

This really isn't accurate. Most media outlets choose not to report the race of apprehended criminals, given that this is irrelevant from a public safety standpoint. Most of the media does include race as a part of the description of violent criminals who are on the loose, and thus represent a public danger.

Political correctness is nonsense that needs to be thrown in the garbage.

Well if I was a policeman I would work from the premise that all of the criminals were black. The percentages are in my favor.

Why stop at gender, how about species? It is discrimination to lay it all on humans.

A quick read of this study would be helpful.

"Armed robbery suspect description: black male."


Do you see a difference there? You never hear "Armed robbery suspect description: white male." People would laugh at that description. But for some reason "black male" is considered a good enough description by many people.
So now we'll see "Suspect: a male" because we can't mention race anymore.
Next it will be gender and then it will turn into "Suspect..a human"

I think all of the white senior Admins and Faculty at UofM should step aside and allow black folk to replace them. That would show us they are not hypocrites and genuinely believe the BS stuff they do.
