In the past, the race of criminals simply wasn't divulged.

Then some television stations, though still saying nothing of race, played the surveillance footage while talking of “teens,” a word suggesting fun-loving striplings.
Many papers now publish photos, and others often mention in graff fifteen that the assailants were “young black males” (though often girls are also involved).... What now? Television will continue to control the idiot demographic, but as more and more of the sentient realize what is happening, and that they can talk about it, things will change. Just how I donエt know. But we had better do some thinking. The racial divide is the worst danger this country has faced, or refused to face. If we donエt think of something to do about it, itエs going to wreck the joint, and nobody will like it. Fred On Everything

Our local paper still edits the police reports to eliminate references to African Americans. Whites, Hispanics,and the rare Oriental are fair game. But the PD set up a webpage and the put the reports up unedited. With mug shots. Waaay cool.

The euphemisms get recognized as a place-taker for the earlier word. All that is generated is cynicism. When I was in school 30 years ago and more, we understood what the changing names were - 'special ed' was understood for what it was and who the students were.*

Like the child who was too unsophisticated to the ways of the world and blurted out that the Emperor was naked. All euphemisms fall to that.

*Only the real dolts and bullies made fun of those students. Kicking some one when he or she was down was still distasteful then.

Before the liberal takeover of the news biz, the race of criminals was routinely reported.

So, ok 12% of the population commit nearly half of all the murders in the US. But that's not right, it's mostly males(but the women are trying to catch up). So 6% of the population is doing half of the killing. Wait that's not right either. The vast majority is done by males between 15 and 30 years old. So basically nearly half of all homicides are done by 1 1/2% of the population. Math is hard, and racist too.

Dear ck, please stop arranging things in their true perspective or they're going to come after you. Truth and statistics are beyond the closed minds of liberals.
