The university has hired a cybersecurity firm, Stroz Friedberg Digital Forensics, to investigate the source of the anonymous emails.The investigation will also try to determine whether the emails are “an isolated matter or part of a larger white supremacist campaign,” he said.

The left’s rhetorical response to the rising political threat of inflation continues to evolve. First they said the problem didn’t exist, and anyone who claimed otherwise was acting in bad faith or spouting Republican propaganda. Then, they said inflation is real — but President Biden’s Build Back Better plan would fix it.Now, they tell us, inflation might be happening — but it’s the fault of greedy corporations! And those companies must be punished.

I listen to NPR (sometimes) on my commute and here's how they described the guy who mowed over and killed a half-dozen Americans with his car:
Police say the suspect is Darrell Brooks Jr., who is 39 years old.
That chronological advancement of the suspect is the only thing we know until "The suspect in the Wis. Christmas parade attack has a previous criminal record"
We've learned that the man accused of driving his vehicle into a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wis., and killing five people had a history of criminal charges. Police identified the suspect as Darrell Brooks Jr., 39 years old.
Much later in the story, we get the very first description on the race of the suspect:
YOUSEF: Well, Darrell Brooks is Black...
He is? Wow, well, it took all of five words to blame this on those darn Whites:
...and Waukesha is 89% white. So predictably, extremists have been exploiting this to sow racial division.
Yes, it's the "Republicans pounce" trope.
Now compare and contrast simply the title of a similarly-charged article: "The trial of 3 white men charged with murdering a Black jogger is nearing an end."
Gee, it didn't take long - at all - to inject race into this story.
I wonder why we know the race of the now-convicted suspects but not their ages.
