Some media outlets are refusing to identify the race of the suspect involved in the murder of a sheriff’s deputy in Houston last night, despite the fact that he is clearly black.
At around 8:30pm last night, Deputy Darren Goforth was pumping gas into his vehicle in full uniform before he was approached by a man who shot him from behind multiple times.
“Police described the suspect as a dark-complexioned male who is believed to be between 20 and 25 years old, and stands about 5-foot-10 to 6-feet tall,” reports the Associated Press.
Surveillance footage of the suspect clearly shows that he is black.
Are we at a point now in America where it is politically incorrect to identify the race of wanted murderers?
If the killer was white, would the AP describe him as a “light-complexioned male”?
The murder took place just days after a group of black radicals called for “lynching whites and killing cops,” and less than 72 hours after Bryce Williams gunned down TV reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward live on air.
In his manifesto, Williams said the murder was his contribution to starting a “race war” in America.
Until the suspect in last night’s shooting has been caught it will be impossible to determine his motive, but the random nature of the incident suggests there’s every chance it could be related to ongoing racial tensions that have been fueled by both the media and the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement.
“We’ve been warned of things like this, because of public sentiment nationally and events over the last few years,” said Bob Goerlitz, president of the Harris County Deputies Organization. “It’s just horrific. That’s the only way to describe it.”
