Talk To 12: Questionable Graphic?

We get all kinds of questions in our Talk To 12 in-box.

We got this one about one of the crime graphics we use on the air. John says he watches us every day, but somethings bothering him.

He writes: "Whenever the description of a "wanted" individual is shown, there's an accompanying graphic of an individual who is clearly African American, implying that all criminals are African American.
I believe some folks may find it offensive, and you may want to consider a change before you get a crop of angry picketers on Georgia Avenue."

Well, thanks for the heads-up George. Tell you what, we'll show you the graphic we use and let everybody weigh in.
He's pretty scary looking, but I'd like to see if anybody else thinks of our wanted man as black or white.
