    “The robber is described as a man in his 30s, about 5 foot 9 inches tall, with a skinny build, a short black afro and a black beard.” Would it be inappropriate to ask if this was a white or black “person”. Is it politically incorrect to mention race in a description of an individual? How do you know it was a male? Could have been a cross-dresser or a male interpreter and as a male I find this deeply offensive.
