‘U’ Students Want Crime Alerts To
Avoid Using Racial Descriptions

WCCO [CBS-Minnesota], by Edgar Linares

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/31/2014 5:25:02 AM

MINNEAPOLIS– 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. Students and staff mailed the letter more than a month after

Comments:
How would a crime alert that cannot use a full physical description be of any informative value?

Just allow all the other racial descriptions. When a crime report leaves one out, then you´ll know it´s black.

Morons. Fine, let them have their "crime alerts". It will only put them in harm´s way all the more. Consider it evolution in action.

OK. Then the alerts will simply say that the suspects are members of "the RACE which cannot be named."

Most of us have already figured this out. If race isn´t mentioned, usually black. If religion isn´t mentioned, usually Muslim. Whites always identified, as are Hispanics and Orientals. Besides, the name usually gives it away, LaShantwon. If you can´t stand the publicity, don´t do the crime.

Surely gender and age descriptions will be removed next, followed by racially-favored clothing which could be linked to certain cultures like bunads to Norwegians.

Pick a new place-holder word for race such as "Trayvon" to describe a suspect. It doesn´t mention color. The police can say to each other "Be on the lookout for a 6´9" Trayvon wearing....."

If the suspect is a white person, pick a famous white person who broke the law. "Be on the lookout for a 5´9" Bieber...."
Of course police would have to adjust for male and female Trayvons or Biebers.

This all sounds so idiotic - it just proves, to me, that some people demand special treatment and nothing else matters.

#8 “...Besides, the name usually gives it away, LaShantwon….”

To laugh! I find it ironic that at about the same time ‘race’ was being removed from all official forms and documents, the custom of naming black children with strange, made-up names serves the purpose of identifying ‘race’ far better than anything else. To read in the local newspaper the list of six-year old children beginning school is to marvel at the names…and the inventive spelling. Of course there are always a few little white children in the line-up named Kimberly, Jimmy and Adele.

If I were the University President, I would agree to the request IF all of these BLACK organizations would agree to remove any reference to BLACK, African, etc. from the names of their organizations. We´ll all be color neutral.

Why do they allow all of these BLACK organizations on campus anyhow. It´s discriminatory.

This article is full of boloney. They are attempting to ignore reality, next they will be claiming that it is sexism to include the gender of perpetrators. These wackos would be very happy if the police spend their time arresting redheaded white grandmas for the crimes committed by young black male suspects.

Russian Regular Forces To Invade
"NewRussia" Between May 4 And 9?
Forbes, by Paul Roderick Gregory    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/20/2014 5:37:58 AM     Post Reply
This “Open Letter to the Friends of Ukraine,” by a guest columnist who writes under the pen name of Irina Gokieli, dated April 19, offers the author’s pessimistic scenario of forthcoming events in what Vladimir Putin now calls “NewRussia.” “NewRussia” encompasses southeastern Ukraine and parts of Moldova. She predicts an invasion by regular Russian troops near the end of the first week of May under the pretext of restoring order, although she does not rule out, as an alternative, an alliance of Putin with certain Ukrainian politicians and oligarchs. Notably the author makes a persuasive case that the long-term consequences

TO THE RECENT spate of 50th-anniversary reflections on major political and cultural milestones — the 1963 March on Washington, the assassination of John F. Kennedy, the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show — get ready to add another: The presidential campaign of Barry Goldwater, the most influential loser in modern American politics. Goldwater was nicknamed “Mr. Conservative,” but now even liberals adore him. Robert F. Kennedy Jr. penned an essay a few years back effusive in its praise for Goldwater, whom he described as an exemplar of civility, decency, and integrity. Goldwater was “neither mean-spirited nor racist,” wrote Kennedy; he challenged

A three-year study of how network news refers to “Easter” reveals that by a margin of 500-56, reports that mention the word or “Easter season” choose a secular path linking it to candy Peeps, frilly clothes and cocktails over Christ’s resurrection. “Instead of celebrating Christ´s rising from the dead, the networks have made it about ´egg-cellent Easter fashions,´ frilly Easter bonnets and pink martinis,” said a report from the conservative Media Research Center provided to Secrets on Good Friday. The study reviewed three years of news in the two weeks before Easter and found that about 89 percent of the references to

The building will dominate the skyline of the coastal town of Jeddah on the Red Sea.

Holder’s undermining of the

Attorney General Eric H. Holder was reminded during a recent congressional hearing that he has been held in “contempt of Congress” — for nonproduction of subpoenaed documents. He interrupted with a personal rebuke of his questioner. Later, he suggested that questioning of his leadership, nonresponsiveness to congressional oversight, and referring to the contempt vote was evidence of racism. The accusation was made a second time, perhaps as a political stratagem, by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Let’s stop there — and stop the deflection, too. No attorney general of the United States is entitled, for any reason, to escape scrutiny of Congress,

Stop dressing so tacky for church

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

The Growing Financial Disaster of Obamacare

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

One told the other that there, for the first time, her toddler was given Jif peanut butter. He loved it. Prior to that he had only had Whole Foods peanut butter, which (one might

Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
