Political correctness is so goofy.

New York Times:

A shooting on the grounds of Sacramento City College left one person dead, two others injured and the campus on lockdown Thursday night, the Sacramento Police Department said.

The shooting took place Thursday afternoon in a parking lot near a baseball field on the southern edge of campus, according to the police. The victim, who was not publicly identified, was pronounced dead at the scene. Another person was shot several times and was taken to a hospital, said Rick Brewer, a spokesman for Sacramento City College, and a third person sustained minor injuries.

Mr. Brewer said the shooting began as a “verbal altercation” between four men that turned deadly when one pulled out a semiautomatic handgun. He said the campus was on lockdown Thursday night and students and staff members were being systematically evacuated from buildings and searched.

The police said in a message posted to Twitter that they were looking for a suspect they described as a Tongan man in beige cargo shorts and a white shirt.

Do you know what a “Tongan” is?

I actually do, but presumably, most people do not.


Tonga ([ˈtoŋa]; Tongan: Puleʻanga Fakatuʻi ʻo Tonga), officially the Kingdom of Tonga, is a Polynesian sovereign state and archipelago comprising 177 islands with a total surface area of about 750 square kilometres (290 sq mi) scattered over 700,000 square kilometres (270,000 sq mi) of the southern Pacific Ocean, of which 52 islands are inhabited by its 103,000 people. Seventy percent of Tongans reside on the main island of Tongatapu.

Tongan people look like this:


Why would they say “Tongan” as if people are going to immediately get an image in their minds of what that looks like?

They might as well have said “Tongan – please Google for further information about what such a person may look like.”

Is it less racist to say the national origin of a man than to describe him physically as a “dark-skinned man of South Asian appearance”? I suppose so. I mean, at least that appears to be the implication here. But this also impedes police action by avoiding giving a more specific description everyone is likely to understand.

Tonga: Population 109,000
Tonga: Population 109,000

They could have at least said “Polynesian,” rather than refer to the specific Polynesian island very few people will have ever heard of.

Also, if they know he is Tongan – that is a relatively specific piece of information – why do they not know his name?

This has all gotten so dumb.
