Armed robbery suspects sought

— The Albany Police department is looking for two suspects in connection with a predawn armed robbery of two people.

APD reports that the robbery occurred at 5:30 a.m. The victims were walking south on Easman Drive near its intersection with South Street when the suspects jumped out and held them at gun point with a shotgun, APD says.

The robbers took the female victim’s purse and fled on foot. Responding officers canvassed the area and were unable to locate the suspects.

Police are asking for people to look out for the suspects. They are both African-American males wearing dark clothing. One is 5 feet 4 inches tall. The second, armed with a shotgun, is 5 feet 8 and was wearing a scarf over his face.

When I see a White-Ameican commit a crime, that's when I get shocked? Here in Albany Ga. The Good Life City?

I just don't get it? If your white than your white? If your Asian than you are Asian? If your Cuban than your Cuban? But if your black? Than your African-American? With all these problems and if they are from Africa? Than the Government needs to start Deporting!!!

That option would have been available to almost all freed slaves if Booth had not shot Lincoln. Lincoln wanted to"Restore a captured people to their homeland".

How do they know they are African American? They could be from Jamaica or Dominican Republic.

What color is an African American? There are white Africans, there are olive skinned Africans there are the beautiful mahogany colored Africans...so, what color is an African American?

Dark brown, sometime olive skin with a wide nose and thick lips, isn't it about time we native americans, (indians) start putting on our war paint and take this country back.

I wander what they call black people in England? African-English...African-Brit? I bet they don't call them anything different than the other citizens...which is the way it should be.

Following the logic of this article looking for two African American males...I just had a thought. The State of Georgia was founded as an alternative to English debtors prisons. My ancestors came as a result of this alternative. Therefore, if black people are African-Americans, and since my family was sent here to relieve over-crowding in English prisons that make me....GASP...a DEBTOR-AMERICAN!!

All these negative comments on this story, but only 2 comments where the guy and his son tried to blow up something? What is wrong here people? Now if a black person started making negative comments on the other story first, there would be heck to pay. Get a clue!! We are all foreigners. That is unless you are of Native American descent!!

SERIOUSLY?!?!?! The term African- American is the debate of this article!!!! SMH African-American is not the only term used to describe a race of people......

Black or African American: those having origins in any of the Black racial groups of Africa. American Indian or Alaska Native, also called Native Americans: those having origins in any of the original peoples of North, Central and South America, and who maintain tribal affiliation or community attachment. Asian, also called Asian American: those having origins in any of the original peoples of the Far East, Southeast Asia, and the South Asia; frequently specified as Chinese American, Korean American, Indian American, Filipino American, Vietnamese American, Japanese American, etc. Native Hawaiians or Other Pacific Islander: those having origins in any of the original peoples of Hawaii, Guam, Samoa, or other Pacific Islands; see also Pacific Islander American.

But hey dont want you guys to feel left out.....White Anglo-Saxon Protestant (WASP) is an informal term, often derogatory or disparaging, for a closed group of high-status Americans mostly of English Protestant ancestry

"African-American is not the only term used to describe a race of people......"

We know. And it's stupid. Anyone who lives legally within the borders of the USA is American. Period. Why can't people just call themselves American? Everyone wants to be so equal, yet they insist on setting themselves apart.

Because the only people who are truly "American" are the Native Americans......
