As Twitchy reported Sunday, New York Times op-ed columnist and author Charles Blow was fuming when he learned that Yale police had stopped his son, an undergraduate at the school, at gunpoint while investigating a string of burglaries on campus. Police said Blow’s son, “who closely matched the description of the suspect, was briefly detained and released by Yale police.”
In his fury, Blow tweeted the hashtags #ICantBreathe and #BlackLivesMatter. Gawker used the incident to compile a list of “Students’ Stories of Depressingly Common Run-Ins with Campus Cops,” which one person linked with the hashtags #BlackLivesMatter and #RacialTerrorism.
One detail that Blow left out in his retelling of the incident: the police officer who detained his son was also black.
Why not mention the race of the officer, especially when people are crying “racial terrorism” over the incident?
