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.
Oh, for heaven’s sake - after 1-1/2 years in Africa, not many black Americans were a color match for the “so black they’re almost blue” pigmented folks I met.
How about the Sudanese boys that ended up in the USA - now that’s BLACK.
...of course we've got some problems down here too!
It has really been no big deal up here.
People need to get a life and quit letting every little thing bug them. Bless their little hearts.
I use DMC cross stitch colors. Or, I did when I cross stitched a lot.
Dark Skinned Obama Lover.
It’s a potentially lucrative racket. Getting offended for the sake of getting offended.
Now, about calling me "white"....
So the PD is going to be put through “sensitivity training”. The city council of Lockport owes it to their taxpaying citizens to inform them how much $$$ this glorified brainwashing is costing them. Teaching sensitivity, that’s gotta be a nice gig. As Old Blue Eyes sang “Nice Work if You Can Get It”.
As I recall during the race riots in High School, the answer was irrelevant. Whatever a targeted person said would be wrong.
Negro is Spanish for black, and we are on the verge of being a Spanish speaking country, so why not.
Arnold Schwarzenegger was unavailable for comment.
I hear The National Council of Negro Women isn't too happy either.
