Racial bias unnecessary

I was upset to read the quote from Sam Hochstetler: “I feel no hatred, bitterness, anger, nor revenge towards the two Black men that murdered my daughter-in-law.” The adjective “Black” to describe the men was offensive and unnecessary. There is inherent racial bias in describing someone who does something illegal or “wrong” by referring to their skin color.
