Is this what society has come to? Let’s not insult the criminals by mentioning their skin color . Let the victims lay in the hospital so we can protect the criminals feelings and be politically correct. I’m sure if the attackers were Jewish the media would have no problem saying 2 Jews shot an innocent bystander.

How can we help if you don’t tell us the race of the individual. Do we have to be so politically correct that we leave the victims of crimes suffering?
