Welcome to the politically correct, multicultural utopia of the San Francisco Bay Area, where transit authorities are refusing to release surveillance videos that captured a wave of robberies committed by groups of teens at BART stations, because to do so might inspire racial animus toward minorities.
Red State's Kira Davis, whom you may remember from her video for TruthRevolt here, reports that the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) authorities are withholding surveillance videos of the following violent robberies committed over the last three months:
April 22: Forty to sixty kids boarded a train at the Coliseum stop and robbed seven passengers, beating up two;
June 28: A group of four kids assaulted a passenger and made off with a cell phone at Dublin; and
June 30: A woman on a train with about a dozen teenagers had her phone snatched by one them before the group got off at the Coliseum stop. Thankfully, a good Samaritan was on hand to retrieve the phone.
CBS interviewed BART Board of Directors member Debora Allen, who said that turning over the tapes to the press would be racially insensitive: To release these videos would create a high level of racially insensitive commentary toward the district," she said.

They wonder how Donald trump got elected????
This is the sorta crap that unintentionally helped elect Trump.
The “coverup of information for political gains” is why the public don’t trust the media or the government establishment anymore...
Just saying any such thing does all the damage they falsely claim they wish to avoid.

Civilized people will flee this behavior....and, then be blamed for racism when they do.
“perpetuating false stereotypes”
If you have it on video - it isn’t a stereotype.
As Archibald Cox said before the USSC in the Bakke case:
“To ignore race is to ignore reality”
I’ve noticed a recent trend, whenever there is a violent crime and offender on the run - the news will say to be ‘on the look out for a man in green pants and a yellow shirt with an energy drink logo on it, a scar above his right eye, etc....but no race.
No. It would confirm what everyone already knows: non-Whites are taking money from Whites with the tacit approval of the authorities and they don’t want Whitey to realize it.
