From Grand Rapids, a town where it seems black crime never sleeps, a particularly disturbing one occurred this morning, when witnesses at the downtown-based Grand Rapids Community College saw a black male dragging the body of a white woman between the buildings of the school. People walking at that hour saw the horrible sight, and called police. This was not too far from the police station, but when police arrived, they only found the white woman’s body and not the probable killer. Fifteen hours later, the woman has not been publicly identified, except to say she was a white [!] woman between the ages of 30 and 40. Police are calling it a murder, and are looking for who did it, but lately police have stopped giving much information on crimes involving blacks.
Two days ago, a 27-year-old black shot his fat black girlfriend in the neck, went to a business he used to work at, rounded up the employees, sexually assaulted one woman, and stole a car. He wound up on my side of town, but police never gave a name to the suspect—though the TV station did—by talking to relatives.
This used to be a good town. Not anymore.
Update, at 7:28 p.m.
Let me clarify. I heard this woman was white on a TV station. Have not seen that in print. Will keep you posted.

Your local "news"paper must have the same policy ours does, mention of race is not permitted for either victims or suspects, unless the perp is white, then it's OK to loudly announce "white." Only time it's supposed to be OK to mention race is if a suspect represents an immediate danger to the public, only problem is that the only criminals that ever seem to be deemed that dangerous are always white – never black. Local TV stations will sometimes mention the race of a suspect and sometimes not, depending on how politically correct they’re feeling, I guess.

Grand Rapids Anonymous wrote some other excellent essays as comments, but that was before he identified where he lived, and I was thus unable to locate them. When I do, I’ll add them to the Grand Rapids file.
