If Racial Profiling Is Wrong …

“After a University of Nebraska at Lincoln student was sexually assaulted in her dormitory last month,” Inside Higher Ed reports, the university came under intense fire “by students who thought police should not have mentioned in a campus-wide bulletin that two men accused of sexual assault were black, believing that it reinforced harmful stereotypes.” The criticism was so vehement “that university officials are now re-evaluating when and how racial identifiers should be included in such warnings.”

That is the first paragraph of my new essay that has just been posted on Minding The Campus. In the remainder I ask, if it is wrong to mention the race of suspects, why is it not also wrong to mention their sex?

Say What?
