A while back, this website researched and published a bombshell. The media in Minneapolis, MN has been reporting a surge in violent crime against students of Minneapolis University [MU]. However, the local media is completely censoring the race of the perpetrator in every crime story involving a student victims.
We did an audit of crime alerts from the campus police. In every single incident since the beginning of the fall 2013 semester, in which the race of the perpetrator is known, the perpetrator is black.
Now, in part because of our efforts, several black students groups and the Black Faculty and Staff Association are demanding that campus police reduce efforts to catch black perpetrators. They want campus police to censor descriptions of black crime perpetrators in their bulletins. This would put the public at greater risk and make it harder for the police to find potential witnesses.
The black students groups and black faculty groups are trying to provide direct aid to the black gangbangers who commit crimes, many of which are violent racially motivated hate crimes, against MU students. They are running interference for the gangbangers by accusing the police of “racism.” This is a tactic that goes back to New York City in the 1920s, and was originally used to derail investigations into immigrant crime syndicates.
The people making these demands against the campus police are trying to create a safer environment for the criminals.

School officials at the University of Minnesota are working with black student and facility organizations after they wrote a letter to the school’s president about the racial descriptions given in crime alerts.
The letter, sent on Dec. 6, 2013, was issued by members of the African American and African Studies, Black Faculty and Staff Association, Black Graduate and Professional Student Association, Black Men’s Forum, Black Student Union and Huntley House for African American Males.
It was directed to University President Eric Kaler and Pamela Wheelock, the vice president of University Services.
Students and staff mailed the letter more than a month after the campus went on lockdown because of an attempted robbery at Anderson Hall on Nov. 11, 2013. University of Minnesota Police wrongfully identified a student as the suspect.
On Tuesday, school officials reported there have been 25 robberies in and around the University, an increase of 27 percent over the last few years.
The organizations wrote that while campus safety is crucial, the profiling can be devastating for black male students.
“[We] unanimously agree that campus safety should be of the UMPD’s utmost importance; however, efforts to reduce crime should never be at the expense of our Black men, or any specific group of people likely to be targeted. In addition to causing Black men to feel unsafe and distrusted, racial profiling is proven to inflict negative psychological effects on its victims.”
At Wednesday’s forum, Ian Taylor Jr., president of the Black Men’s Forum, said members of his organization feel threatened when the use of a racial description is given in the crime alerts.
“The repeated black, black, black suspect,” Taylor said. “And what that does it really discomforts the mental and physical comfort for students on campus because they feel like suspicions begin to increase.”
The letter then gave 12 recommendations to UMPD Chief Gregory Hestness on how to improve their response.
The recommendations include requiring officers to attend diversity training, and attach a link on crime alerts to the U’s no-tolerance policy on racial profiling.
