LOCKPORT, NY - Last week, 2 On Your Side reported on the spike of shootings in the City of Lockport this year. While we were in Lockport, police gave us a mug shot of a man suspected of some of the shootings. And, on the mug shot appeared a phrase that can be offensive to many people.
The mug shot was of 19-year-old Shamir Allen. He's a suspect in several shootings in the city. We looked further on the mug shot and found next to line labeled "complexion," that Allen is listed as a "negro." Next to negro it reads "DA"
According to Lockport Police, this means dark.
So, Shamir Allen, a 19-year-old suspect is listed as a "dark negro," in the Lockport Police database.
We showed the mug shot to three black leaders in the City of Buffalo -- Eva M. Doyle, a columnist and author, who's written thousands of articles on African and African-American culture; Erie County Legislator Betty Jean Grant; and Frank Mesiah, the president of the NAACP Buffalo Branch.
All three were outraged by what they saw.

The United Negro College Fund is very offended!
Of course you might wonder why these sensitive souls are not a bit more concerned about helping locate a guy, dark skinned Negro or not, who might be responsible for “several shootings”; but if you think that you very well might be a racist.
It is interesting these groups spend so much time worrying over what they will be called. There was a time when “Black” was offensive. They insisted on colored, then negro, then black, then afro-American. Jews never worry about what they are called. Asians seldom worry about what they are called, they simply get the grades, the scholarships, the jobs and go about their business.
Looks innocent to me. Give him $10 million for referring to him as a negro. Case closed. The Great OZ has spoken.
MLK’s I Have A Dream speech has negro in it several times. I guess we should start changing the street names back to what they were before.
Don’t forget ‘people of color’.
Too bad these “civil rights activists” don’t have anything serious to whine about...another group of perpetual victims perpetually offended.
Well, at least they didn’t call him a “White Hispanic.”
Given the border situation, blacks better get used to hearing themselves called “negro”.
If the media doesn't have any sensational, controversial racial news to put on the air, they'll contrive something or some way to stir the pot and agitate.
Black leaders are only too happy to go along with the media's game. These leaders, from Jesse and Al to all the way down know that without continual racial strife, they'd all be out of their jobs, their grants, their subsidies, their speaking fees and their lucrative extortion rackets.
The shameless and corrupt U.S. media is one of the primary entities of the "enemy within".
if only he were a white hispanic
Well to tell the family secret, his grandmother was Dutch.
A real “Chocolate City.”
So, correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t Negro’ in Spanish...Black?
Time to start calling people’s color by Pantone number. That way no one can be offended.
