Boston Marathon Suspect Race: Unknown From Photos


The FBI released 11 photos and a video of two suspects of Monday's Boston Marathon bombings, where three people lost their lives and over 160 resulted injured. The two suspects appear young-looking, and they are wearing casual clothes and sports hats. As soon as the FBI, and CNN, shared the images people on social media started obsessing with the suspect's race — with tweets and Facebook comments claiming they are either Caucasian or "brown." It's an understandable obsession, as the highly politicized environment will define the remaining of the investigation based on this variable alone. However, until the suspects aren't fully identified by the FBI people must refrain from speculating based on these persons' ethnicity.
