59. Don't Be a Racist

A: The police need our help finding a robber.

B: How do you know?

A: The TV news is reporting a bank robbery.

B: Do they know what the robber looks like?

A: Yes, he's 6 feet tall, 200 pounds, black hair, and about 30 years old.

B: What race is he?

A: They didn't say.

B: The TV news doesn't tell us the race anymore.

A: Of course not. That would be racist.

B: But how can we identify someone if we don't know their race?

A: Don't ask me.

B: Then they also shouldn't tell us if the robber is male or female, because that is sexist.
