In 2002 I did an article called Philadelphia Foolishness in which I discussed the kerfuffle that resulted when the Philadelphia Daily News printed a front page story full of the "photographs of 15 of the 41 people who [had] outstanding homicide warrants in the Philadelphia area." There were no white people among the 15, and there were no white suspects being sought for murder. Complaints about this were heard from a black PR man, a local black politician, and local Black Muslim Imam. Well, the Chicago Tribune is apparently not taking any chances of this happening to them, and managed to pick the two whitest criminals out of a lineup for their front page.
