Hi,

I'd love to post about this at Sociological Images. I checked out the website and, no doubt, relentlessly white. But I couldn't find any images of the theif either on the website or google searching images. Where did you find them?

They're all over the Web. NYPost.com runs them a lot.

I have seen the ad and all the thieves are white too.

I've called Life Lock on this exact issue. Two of the id thieves are redhead whites, which I find interesting...I intend to put it out on FB, and ask people to call in to them, as this is racist PC....If all the id thieves were black or Hispanic, it would be hell to pay..Use whites - silence
