I don't think it mattered that she was black...it was used to describe what she looked like...people would have been looking out for a white woman.

71 year old black woman. What is with TV 8 - why the "black" comment. If she was white they wouldn't say 71 year old white woman found.

Wow...are we a bit touchy about color being mentioned or what??
I'm sure it was a description thing...so people knew who was lost...
But some of ya are reacting as if it's a huge racial faux paux!!

It is nice to know she was found before the nasty weather being forcast sets in.

You're entitled to your opinion but it's true and we all know it. I just put it in writing which upsets all the libs.

I was thinking the same thing. So they found this woman that was lost...A good thing, but did she have alzheimers and wander off, take the wrong bus, is running away from home or what? Leave it to Wood, probably too busy hypin the Michigan State game (another good thing ;)

tell people that she was black is a good dicreption, but also tell the her mental problems and how to attend to her needs. My own mother barely remembers me but i love her and get her to react to things.
