The only reason I can think of for using the (not at all helpful) adjective "non-white" to describe the first suspect is a desire to avoid using an actual racial adjective. Unfortunately, this calls attention to the whole problem, i.e. that he is "racial." Oy.
Niagara Regional Police are looking for two men after an LCBO Avondale combo store in Vineland was held up
Police say the suspects grabbed a quantity of booze around 7:30 last night and took off in a brown minivan.
A citizen was struck by the van and received minor injuries as he and a store employee gave chase.
The minivan was found abandoned later.
One of the suspects is non-white and 20 years old, the other is white and 17.

Note that the host dubs this rare moment of truth on FoxNews an instance of "going postal."

The copy reads:
Inspired by Masai wedding collars, this dress salutes both our global provenance and our desire to create our own soundtrack as we move in mysterious ways. With every step, strings of hand-formed silver beads that hung from the collar brush against conductive threads sewn into the dress, generating a series of sounds. A leisurely walk or a night at a cocktail party turns into an improvisational performance.
A long asymmetrical swoop in the back of the dress recalls Balenciaga’s famed wedding dress – an homage to a maestro that visually and aurally blends cultures, traditions and emotions. The dress comes in a luscious deep-sky blue silk jersey and white nourishing Sea-Tiva (75% cotton, 25% algae).
A dress that heals body and soul.

Apparently the company's owner offered this explanation to TheGloss, who originally broke the story:
The dollar sign in the set is there to symbolize the "Chanukah-Gelt" - which is an old Jewish tradition. During Chanukah Jewish children all over the world are given coins or chocolate coins (to symbolize the real coins). The Dollar sign in the set comes to remind us of that. By the way, they were created by Rabby Moshe Rabin. Maybe it is not the best choice, but this is what the manufacturer chose for that symbol (probably if he would have tried to show coins it would just be a round silly band - and that would defeat the purpose).

Says Nancy, "I like the part where you can keep going straight for 'Asian mammals.'" Where does one draw the line?
He notes, "So the magazine is for metro-Muslims, but I love the article tag line that is 'Tame that Beard,' which is kinda racist." I myself am a bit concerned about the advice dispensed under "Black and Can't Get a Wife?"
