Another Raceless Criminal

In Rock Hill, a city near Charlotte, a woman wore a bikini that featured the design a Confederate flag to an apartment swimming pool with some friends.  The Charlotte Observer says that a group of "people" came up, surrounded them, and called them racists.  When one of the woman's friends stood up, a "suspect" pointed a gun at him before fleeing.

The Charlotte Observer doesn't give the race (or any other description) of the suspect, but his race was probably the same as most of the people who went wilding over Memorial Day weekend (including in Charlotte, where one man was killed and 70 people arrested after a gang melee).

The readers of the Observer's website aren't as clueless as the commissars of political correctness.  The article has a postscript:
Editor's note: Comments have been disabled because of repeated violations of site policies. Please refrain from profanity, obscenity, racist remarks, spam, name-calling or attacking others for their views.

In other words, someone mentioned that the gunman was black, which prompted a discussion of blacks and crime in the comments, leading the horrified liberal editors to shut down the comments to prevent the spread of politically incorrect ideas.

  1. Actually these days when someone points out a hate crime(Note that 99.9% of these are black on white crimes on youtube) the comments usually go forbore racist pretty quick. Generally turns into a battle between the black supremacists/white's who view all blacks as N******/and progressives attacking the whites who don't tow the line.

    It certainly happens a lot more than it use to. I wonder if whites are becoming more openly racist?

  2. "It certainly happens a lot more than it use to. I wonder if whites are becoming more openly racist?"

    I think so. The fact that in 2009 every time someone criticized Obama they were smeared as a racist has desensitized middle-class white Americans to the word "racism.
