Why did NBC news yesterday describe 3 men who posed as water company workers as being white men when they neve?

never say if an alledged criminal is black or hispanic? It occured in Jersey City & the trio ripped off an elderly couple of several thousand dollars & jewelry.

    Its exactly the same in the UK . They seem to be gleeful to describe some accused criminals as being "white" yet if they are anything else they either say nothing or describe them as "dark appearance" There are exceptions to this.

    The media just assumed that everyone realized that any criminals posing as 'workers', would have to have been white.

    That's what Soft Racism looks like.

    If they have NOT been captured, skin color is important in tracking them down.
