The words Black or African-American don't appear in this story,but now the suspect is described as "The suspect is described as a male with a medium-to-dark complexion..." which is useful, as long as you know that they're talking about an African-American, rather than George Hamilton.
At the upper right of the two sketches, you'll find a little note by the police artist saying "B/M," meaning "Black/Male. " That's because the first question a police artist asks is "What color is the suspect?"
