See, earlier: Black Virginia Beach Shooter DeWayne Craddock Just A Typical Disgruntled Minority Massacre Story

The New York Times has evidently decided to stop categorizing individuals in the news by their race. From the NYT:

Who Is DeWayne Craddock, the Suspect in the Virginia Beach Shooting?

Well, if that photo doesn’t answer the question “Who Is DeWayne Craddock?” in just one glance, I don’t know what would. That’s clearly the most informative photo possible to be chosen to illustrate an article with a “Who Is” headline.

Before DeWayne Antonio Craddock stormed a Virginia Beach municipal complex on Friday, where law enforcement officials said he slaughtered a dozen people and injured several others, he had made his living in public service.

Mr. Craddock, 40, who was killed during a protracted shootout with the police, had been an engineer with the Department of Public Utilities, the city’s water and sanitary sewer services branch. …

No mention of race anywhere in the article …

The suspect had no obvious criminal history, court records show, although he did have several traffic violations over the years.

He earned a bachelor of science degree in civil engineering from Old Dominion University in Virginia.

In 1996, he enlisted in the Virginia National Guard, where he was assigned to the First Battalion, 111th Field Artillery Regiment, in Norfolk as a cannon crew member, according to a state National Guard spokesman. He was discharged in 2002 at the rank of specialist.

So, clearly, he’s just another law-abiding Angry White Man with an engineering degree and National Guard experience. An obvious Trump voter.

When will something be done about the White Male Menace?
