Marquette Backs Off: Reveals the Race of Armed Robbers

After we publicized the fact that Marquette was concealing the race of people who robbed Marquette students with the use of a weapon, and after Charlie Sykes thoroughly chewed out the University on yesterday’s show, Marquette has apparently relented and decided its position is indefensible.

From a Public Safety Alert sent out shortly after midnight last night:
An armed robbery was reported at 11:50 p.m., August 30. An alumna and a student were in the 800 block of North 22nd Street when they were approached by two males who showed a weapon and demanded cash. One of the subjects took the alumna’s purse, then both fled northbound on foot on North 22nd Street then westbound on West Kilbourn Avenue. Both subjects are described as African American males in their late teens or early twenties, clean shaven with short hair. The first subject, who was armed, was described as wearing a gray hoodie with blue lettering and dark shorts. The second subject was described as wearing a dark hoodie and dark shorts.
It’s good that Marquette has backed off a silly, excessively politically correct policy.

But the University’s failure to honestly acknowledge the policy still leaves a bad odor.

Congradulations and thanks to all.

I sent this story to a national site that deals with these matters. The proprietor wrote me that, "it shows how important it is for people to communicate directly with journalists, police, institutions that they have a problem with". But does it?

The prof, after all, has a bully pulpit. I write my Chicago tv and radio stations (and Trib) repeatedly. So far, it seems to no avail.

OTOH, we all know those who want to enable these criminals won't hesitate to revert to their preferred ways.

What a glorious time to be a black bank robber. Every advantage in the world thanks to white liberal guilt. Just look what it did for a Chicago community organizer.
