      It’s probably because people don’t have the guts to speak the truth and risk being called bigots every time they state a simple fact…even though such information would immediately rule out about 88% of the U.S. population as possible suspects. Anyone with a brain in their head would agree that such information is useful in distinguishing who is or is not a suspect. Although these days maybe they just assume it’s understood that he’s black.
