Because most murder victims in Los Angeles are Hispanic or black, the Los Angeles Times is now reporting their race, front and center, in its Homicide Report, but not the race, as reported by witnesses, of the killers.

Thus, we learn that murder victim Daniel Cruz, 60, was “a Latino male,” and Ron Hayden, 61, was a black male.

Were the Times to do real reporting, readers would learn that virtually every Hispanic or black murder victim was killed by a Hispanic or black, but that’s the last thing the times wants to report on, any more than it wants to report on how the group most victimized by black criminals is not blacks, but whites.
