The News-Journal says:

Why, then, accept a description that says a suspect was African-American?

One might suggest that it was because the suspect looked sufficiently African-American for the witnesses to take such a determination.

It's interesting that the News Journal sees fit to include in the description of the suspect what he was wearing; there is nothing so easy to change as your clothes! If the suspect wore "a black T-shirt with a gray undershirt, dark blue jean shorts and black sneakers" today, why should we think he must be wearing the same clothes tomorrow?

Whether he appears to be African-American, however, is not something so easily changed.
