Care to share if he was

Care to share if he was white, black, or whatever???? Have we become so politically correct that we would rather take a chance on letting a bank robber go free than mention his race?

They did the same thing

When the Pit Stop off Carolina Beach Road was robbed they gave a better description of the car than of the robber. Guess they don't want to hurt any feelings.
