White Anchor Describes Shooting Suspects as “Young Black Men” with “Multiple Siblings From Multiple Fathers”

A white Pittsburgh anchorwoman has apologized for the way she described the suspects in a shooting that left five people dead.

Victims of the shooting were gunned down during a cookout after gunmen opened fire from a nearby alley.

According to WKBN,  WTAE anchor-reporter Wendy Bell described the suspects in the shooting as “young black men” with “multiple siblings from multiple fathers” and “their mothers work multiple jobs.”

Bell apologized in a Facebook post.

“I have removed a post that I initially placed here on Monday. I sincerely apologize for that post about the Wilkinsburg mass shooting and the restaurant employee whom my husband and I encountered,” she wrote. “I now understand that some of the words I chose were insensitive and could be viewed as racist. I regret offending anyone. I’m truly sorry.”

In her original post, Bell drew her own profile of the shooting suspects.

“You needn’t be a criminal profiler to draw a mental sketch of the killers who broke so many hearts two weeks ago Wednesday.

‘They are young black men, likely teens or in their early 20s.

“They have multiple siblings from multiple fathers and their mothers work multiple jobs. These boys have been in the system before.

“They’ve grown up there. They know the police. They’ve been arrested.”

The anchor then said “there’s hope”, referring to a young African-American teen she’d seen “hustling like nobody’s business at a restaurant.”

When whites apologize I do not nor will I ever accept them.  When whites I say they're sorry, I say I know, you're always sorry but not in a contrite way.

This reminds me of a story a while back about a white member of the media when someone black committed a crime. He stated the reason was because there were no black fathers in the home. He was arrogant and unapologetic about making a blanket sweeping negative statement about ALL black men. Yet when whites who commit the majority of the crime and mass shootings in America storm into a church and murder nine innocent black church goers there's never a blanket negative statement indicting all white men. This has been going on for decades with the media but recently I would call this the Trump effect. Here's a white racist man Trump garnering wide support by being openly racist and bigoted with little to no negative repercussions. I think the media is trying to cash in on this with ratings by pandering to these same type of angry racist white people. Like I said this is nothing new but the news media is getting more and more blatant about it.

This news caster knew exactly what she was about to do and her effects were pre-planned. She is an evil person, racially motivated. This "apology" is full of BS, faked up. So many public officials use this practice as if the offended parties are supposed to be stupid enough not to recognize the play, which makes it even more offensive. She is a heathenistic heifer. When she made that remark,she included MY children and I resent it to the ends of the earth ! May she be cursed for her intentions !

She is right, she is one of the most straight forward racist around. No political correctness in her body. Made her proud to see that young black teen in the yessa massa position. Pity you could not see him as another decent human being. One thing people like her does not realize he already knows he is special.
