    the description has the color of everything but the skin....


    The guy could change his clothes, but not the skin color, so yes, if you're going to post a description of someone, skin color is important. It eliminates a whole bunch of people who would otherwise be suspect. The media and the government is so focused on proving they're not racists, they actually achieve the opposite.
