FOXNews.com - Views News - Tongue Tied - Target Colors, Black Betty Blackballed: "Police in Tampa, Fla. are now using colored targets on their shooting ranges because they fear the traditional black silhouettes on a white background might be sending a racist message, reports the Tampa Tribune.
Tampa police spokeswoman Laura McElroy, whose agency switched to 'Smurf Blue' silhouette targets from black ones two years ago, said: 'Nowadays, you can never be too sensitive.'
Companies that make the targets report that the trend, which started in Florida, has spread nationwide. Blue and green targets, as well as full-color images, are less likely to be criticized as racially insensitive, they say."
