Boston bombing suspect ID’d as ‘dark-skinned male’; Gwen Ifill, libs go nuts
Oh, here comes the good old race card! As Twitchy reported, CNN broke the news that a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing has been identified. John King reported it was a “dark-skinned” male. Cue the outrage!
CNN describes suspect as “dark skinned male.” Progs going nuts over description.

Yep. It wasn’t just the predictable Gwen Ifill. King was also on the receiving end of some freak-outs because he said he wouldn’t give further information so as to not “inflame tensions.”
John King sayswont give more information about suspect not to inflame tensions doubt he would say that if dealing with a conservative

Huh. But, here come the lib freak-outs.

Hm…..”Dark skinned male” says a lot already, John King, who says he won’t release more info for fear of “raising tensions”

You don’t want to cause offense and further inflame tensions but you don’t have a problem with mentioning he’s “dark skinned.” Re: John King

Yeah, #thanks so much John King for not “inflaming tensions” by saying only that a dark-skinned male is responsible & giving no add’l info.

I feel like counting the number of times #CNN uses “dark-skinned male.” I’m so over polarizing and insensitive language in the media.

Great. Possible Boston bombing suspect identified only as “dark skinned”. Could you vague&racist that up a bit?

Yeah, “dark-skinned individual” is not at all vague and devoid of anything but fuel for terrible posts to online comment sections

Here is an idea, libs. Why not be happy that the case is moving forward and justice may be served? But, then, that doesn’t serve your grievance-mongering, does it?
