Black, White, Or Other?!? - The Pee Flingin' Murderer.

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...
Police said a {redacted} woman tried to run over a man with her car, then hurled a bag of urine at arresting officers. {redacted} Lt. Chris Russ said 39-year-old {redacted} was booked for investigation of attempted murder.

Investigators said the brother of {redacted}'s ex-boyfriend notified police there was a trespasser on his property at about 3 a.m. Thursday. When the 44-year-old man went outside to talk to {redacted}, she allegedly tried to run him over with her vehicle and fled. Police spotted her a short time later and pulled her over.

The lieutenant said {redacted} suddenly removed her urostomy bag and threw it at the three arresting officers, who were splashed with urine.
Question: Is this woman Black, White, Or Other? Why?
