Everyone is a lovely shade of beige…

Honestly, I can’t make this stuff up. A Phoenix, AZ radio station has accused local police of racism when they described a wanted rapist as “Hispanic.”

Is it really a racist thing when we are given a generalized description of a wanted criminal’s race or is it just good police work? It would seem to anyone with an ounce of sense that the later is the answer here. After all, if police are looking for a white Ford Bronco, should the police report describe the auto in oblique terms? (Such as calling the vehicle a “somewhat colorless, large American car that could be thought of as a sport utility vehicle, not that we are impugning all SUVs.”) Or should the police just say it is a white Ford Bronco? Which one would more easily get the public to lend assistance with finding the vehicle?

Really, you need to read the whole thing.

Fausta has her latest Latin Amercian Festival up
– and she kicks it off with the King of Spain telling little Hugo to SHUT UP. Outstanding…!
