He demanded cash from a teller before fleeing on foot, according to sheriff's spokesman Kraig Troxell.

The man appeared to be in his 20s, police said, and wore a black baseball hat, hooded camouflage jacket, black t-shirt and cargo pants, according to police. He was described as being roughly 5'7" to 5'8" tall.

Authorities released surveillance images of the suspect. Anyone with information regarding the suspect's identity is asked to contact Loudoun County Sheriff’s Investigator J. Halley at 703-777-0475.

This is the first chance I've had to read on this one...
GED are you willing to bet on the next armed robbery suspect's race? How about the next drive by shooting suspect's?
I don't think anyone ever stated minorities had exclusive rights to committing crimes. Just that they commit them at a disproportionate rate than caucasian.
Of course, in your world the issue isn't the crime. It's the correct in most cases assumptions of posters.
But why let a little thing called personal responsibility factor into your decision making?

How rare. Just check the stats of the next bank robbery. 99% chance it's a black.
