Black White Or Other?!? - Hot Grits.

Stereotypes are a way of life in America. We feed into them so readily that they take on a life of their own. But just how well do you really know your racial stereotypes?

Black, White, Or Other?!? lists a particularly heinous crime/news story, with incriminating bits of info omitted for the sake of confidentiality. Your job is to guess whether the protagonist is black, white, or the omnipresent "other", and to tell why you guessed how you did. The best guessplanation wins a week's supply of Cyber CapriSuns. And yeah, you could prolly Google the news story to find out the race of the person, but what sorta loser does that? Seriously. And if you already know about the story, and thus the answer, sit this one out. Be a good sport. Don't cheat.

Anyways, here's today's entry...
A [redacted] woman has been charged with battery after she allegedly poured a pot of boiling grits on her boyfriend while he slept.

Sgt. [redacted] says 44 year old [redacted] was angry after her boyfriend broke up with her.

According to [redacted], the victim had just gotten home from work. Police say after two had a heated argument about breaking up, the man went off to bed.

"She came into the room and apparently dumped a huge pot of hot grits on the victim," [redacted] said.

The victim told police he felt a sharp pain, but didn't know what had happened

"He felt a very, very hot sensation with a lot of burning," according to [redacted].

Investigators say that after wiping off the steaming grits, a relative rushed the man to the hospital where they treated him for second degree burns to his face, chest and arms.

Police later picked up[redacted], who fled the residence, and booked her with second degree battery.
Question: Is the scorned, hot grits tossin' lover Black, White, Or Other? Why?
