Beat Whitey Night Deemed Not Racial

What a relief. Remember all the folks who were assaulted at the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines on Beat Whitey Night? Authorities have determined there was no racism involved. A spokeswoman who suggested otherwise has been punished.
After a report filed by Sgt. Dave Murillo noted that 30 to 40 goons were loping around the fairgrounds assaulting the innocent and crowing that it was "Beat Whitey Night," Sgt. Lori Lavorato committed a thought crime by telling the media,
"It's all under investigation, but it's very possible it has racial overtones."
No doubt Murillo's report has gone down a memory hole now that top brass has declared there to be no evidence the assaults were racially motivated. This should be obvious, when you remember that only white people can be racist. If you disagree, then you are a racist.
Having been reassigned to the lowly traffic division, Lavorato is losing her take-home unmarked police car and the extra pay she got for always being on call. She can be thankful she wasn't banished to Siberia.
