But, seriously, this is not *that* different than screaming that you are trying to "undermine racial equality", by calling the LA police when someone that you think you once saw *living* in a non-white neighborhood breaks into your business. That the LA police haven't always been known for being race neutral doesn't mean that you should call the Fresno police instead, any more than having a possible problem in the US means you should call...
