    Race and the 'flash mob' attacks

    June 08, 2011|Steve Chapman

    Here's my question about the teenagers who have been attacking and robbing people on North Michigan Avenue in recent days: Were they Christians? And if so, what denomination? Baptist? Catholic? Seventh Day Adventist?

    Those may sound like ridiculous questions. But so is the question raised by many Tribune readers about our coverage: Why aren't we mentioning that the culprits are black?

    There are good reasons not to identify the attackers by race. It's the newspaper's sound general policy not to mention race in a story, whether about crime or anything else, unless it has some clear relevance to the topic.

    If a reporter goes out and interviews people about the weather, would it make sense for the story to say, "Joe Smith, who is black, is hoping for a cool front"? If a pedestrian gets run over by a bicyclist, should the story mention that the rider was white?

    Generally media outlets are asked not to mention the race of either victim or attacker so that the public is unaware of how much crime is committed by blacks or how many victims are white, when a media outlet wants to get around this, they don't mention the race, but will publish a picture.

    I love it -- a "journalist" arguing in favor of censoring information. What other categories of information would he withhold from readers?
