Please.

And how did they knoow he's 'white' if he wore a face mask? Could he have been a 'white Hispanic'? A light skin 'black' male? Did they see his eyes? Could he have been Asian?

I realize YOUR ski mask covers your entire face, because you're really a ninja and make no mistakes and wear a true ninja mask, not your basic ski mask, but in the rest of the world, face masks typically have large enough eye holes, and sometimes even mouth holes, for somebody to identify a person's skin color - which again, can help in identifying a suspect.

It's an immediate description. If someone saw a tall white man commit a crime, nobody looks for a short African American female, for example. It narrows things down. It's pure logic. Asking what race has to do with it is political correctness run amok.
