By johnboy - 3 October 2011 20

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an aggravated robbery in Fyshwick on Saturday night (October 1).

Around 6.50pm, a man entered the United Service Station on Canberra Avenue and threatened a male staff member with a knife, demanding cash.

The staff member handed over a sum of cash to the man, who fled the service station on foot.

The man is described as Caucasian in appearance, approximately 175cm (5’9”) tall with a solid build. He was wearing a black hooded jumper, blue tracksuit pants with a white stripe, white shoes, sunglasses and a red and white bandana.

Police are appealing for anyone who witnessed the aggravated robbery or saw someone matching the above description in Fyshwick on Saturday night to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au.

I’d rather Caucasian that ‘white’. I don’t see the problem

What’s wrong with ‘white’? Seems a fair representation of most caucasian’s skin colour to me. After winter here I w/couldn’t object to being called ‘translucent’.

Get your eyes tested and check out a colour chart. No caucasian is “white”

Pinkish with subltle cream undertones?

From personal experience, police won’t accept “black” or “IC3” on official police statements, this was in NSW though.

Homo Sapiens is universal.

Latest research indicates that Homo Sapiens are quickly dying out and we are in danger of losing this species on our planent entirely. Current thinking is that there are now two subsets of the species, Homo Rapax and Homo Accidiosus, evidence of the former emerging has been recorded as early as the late 1960’s wheras the latter has emerged as recently as the late 1990’s.

Homo Sapiens is universal. descriptions of members of that species should be just that, descriptive. Caucasian is applied to all “gweilo” regardless if they are blue eyed blond or tall dark and handsome. How about clean shaven? fair/dark complexion? pierced eyebrow? bad teeth? aussie accent?

Might be more of a help in identification.

What description would you prefer?

I’m quite fond of “gweilo” myself.

Guai Lo?

Oh what a terrible injustice. Us poor white people. My heart breaks.

Why do the police persist in describing people as Caucasian? (indigenous to the Caucasus Mountains in the Middle East?)
This outmoded term created in racist 19th century Europe should have disappeared with its equally offensive brothers “Asiatic” and “Negroid”
