Police Sketches of Black Dudes
The photo above is no gag – as funny as it is to see that the composite sketch of the rapist looks just like the newscaster, its not as funny when you realize that police sketch artist drawings of black people are notoriously poor and rarely look like anyone in particular. I’m convinced that when asked to describe the suspect, witnesses just describe the last black male they saw, even if they last saw a black male on television. So I did a little Thembi-style experiment by going online and digging up dozens of sketches of black suspects to see just who the strong arm of the law is looking for. Of course my conclusion was that the “black male suspect” could be ANYONE or SOMEONE who obviously didn’t commit the crime. Here are just a few for now:
This alleged bank robber looks so much like L.L. Cool J I don’t even know why I bothered posting the real Uncle L’s picture.
Is my point proven?
