With the media, you can always tell the race of the suspect.

White: Will be prominently mentioned in the description.
Black: Likely not mentioned at all, even if there is security camera footage
Hispanic/Asian/Indian: Might be mentioned, but often referred to as a person with a "dark complexion"

That's true. Maybe the sexism police will be next to weigh in and complain whenever a suspect is described as male or female.

I was very surprised to see the latest shooting near Michigan state mentioned it was a black man who did the shooting. Lately most articles leave that very big description out. Glad to see some news agencies give complete descriptions.

Students. What you going to do?  :shrug:

That area of Michigan has almost no blacks, except at Ferris State Univ., so the police don't know the proper protocol. :police:

Lansing Mi is a city I am very familiar with I went to Michigan state. Even back in the 60's there were blacks living in the city and not just the ones going to my school. I do believe now that Lansing is almost half black..

My fault.  I was thinking of the shooting at Ferris.  There aren't many blacks in Big Rapids, except at the University.  At the time I was unaware of a shooting at Lansing also.
