According to a local Los Angeles news report, a neighbor of San Bernardino massacre suspects Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik didn't report suspicious activity at their apartment for fear of being accused of racism.
This is the same politically correct culture that lead to the Ft. Hood shooting when Nidal Hassan, who had been spouting violent Islamic propaganda to neighbors on post and reaching out to Al Qaeda, was ignored for fear of "Islamaphobia" accusations.
The warning signs were all there: the justification of homicide bombings; the spewing of anti-American hatred; the efforts to reach Al Qaeda ...

Or is just saying that now since people are going to wonder why nothing was said.

Not everyone is strong enough to stand up to the PC crowd. Fortunately for me I don't care about being PC. I hate being 'shushed'.

The neighbor decided it was best to avoid being labeled a racist...and kept her mouth shut;choosing NOT to report the suspicious activity she saw next door to the police.
What "suspicious activity" did she witness?

I think this was the neighbor that was reported to have seen them bringing in multiple packages and working in the garage throughout the night...
