Wake Forest subdivision spray painted with racial slurs
WRAL Raleigh ^ | 8/21/2010 | Anne Johnson

Posted on 08/21/2010 3:27:27 PM PDT by Spike Knotts

Wake Forest, N.C. — Some Wake Forest residents woke up Saturday to find their neighborhood spray painted with racial slurs and other graffiti. Police calls about the vandalism in the Carriage Run subdivision, off Ligon Mill Road, came in around 3:15 a.m. Racial slurs were spray painted in red on a stop sign and in the roadway of Coach Lantern Avenue and Kemble Drive. A house and car on Kemble Ridge Drive were also spray painted. Investigators said they don't believe that a specific person was targeted. No arrests have been made. Public Works crews were sent out to cover up the slurs and clean up the vandalism.

A brave photographer managed to capture an image of the hateful symbol, known as a "whatsit." Seriously, what slur is this again? Presumably, this was the most offensive offering, or they'd have pictures of the other hateful displays of racism instead. Now where have I seen illiterate scrawling of "hate messages" before?

Is there a story in here somewhere, because if there is, I certainly can’t find it....

Sounds like typical commie agitprop crap to me.

Could be.

Has everyone heard about the stories where someone has found a noose, and that’s supposed to be an expression of anti-black bigotry? I have lost count of the number of those specific cases in which a black person him/herself planted a noose in a public place, so as to stir things up. It turned out that there was no racist KKK member demonstrating hatred in these cases. But, the MSM dutifully reports that a noose was found, and doesn’t do the follow-up when the black culprit is discovered.

That’s what I was thinking: some Dem operative creates incident to they can get more “anti-hate” grants.

“Is there a story in here somewhere, because if there is, I certainly can’t find it....”

That’s the real story, isn’t it?

I can’t imagine how stupid you must be to gather with other adults and then conclude that this is a ‘racial slur.’ Only in the media...

It looks like some retarded wannabe gangbanger graffiti to me. To the media, a group of Black kids spraypainting n****r all over town is also a racial slur/attack even though they are using it as a point of pride.

It does somewhat resemble Arabic...or maybe a Nation of Islam neophyte’s idea of what Arabic script is.

Kinda looks like it says “Jews” in cursive. Looks like the spray painter realized his/her handwriting was extremely bad and just kind of trailed off at the end.

Well, if it was racial...there is no indication if it was anti-black, or anti-white graffiti. The expression "racial slur" works both ways as we clearly know.

Just looks like a bunch of teens who had a spray paint can were just up to some property defacing mischief for the heck of it with no race bating intended. Maybe it was a late Halloween prank.

If ever there was a sign of a DECLINING CIVILIZATION, that garage door would be it.

Now even our graffiti-writing juvenile delinquents have absolutely no talent whatsoever.

I suspect, based on how the story is worded and the single picture, that it was a group of wannabe gangsters out marking objects...and that the racial aspect, since it isn’t shown, is most likely something like “Wake Forest Niggaz” spray painted on a stop sign. Since that obviously isn’t a racial insult towards a protected group, but instead from one, they chose to show one of the other typical untalented artist/illiterate attempts at gang graffiti, and let the reader’s minds do the rest.

Either way, the fact that the headline and the picture are at such odds with each other makes it noteworthy.

Let me spell it out spike.

This is a story about people reading slights into things.

So I made a quip about the word retard that mirrored the hand wringing theme of the story.

This is probably the result of Brad Miller’s campaign. He’s a useless democrat congressman busy stirring up controversy... I think he may lose in November. Everyone should remember last year that Miller claimed one of his constituents threatened him via a fax transmission... yet he would never hold a public town hall.

I wonder if this is his congressional district.

You’ve posted 6 times on this thread, with each post being more belligerent. You’ve gotten one response, at which point you tried to act like you were wronged. No need to spell out what you’re trying to do...you’re trolling hard, but you’re using really old tactics. Or you’re drunk and think you’re funnier than you really are. Either way, I don’t care. Retard.

If you want to talk about this story, feel free to actually say something about it to me instead of acting coy and then being upset when your intentionally ambiguous post is responded to.

Red on red - yeah, that'll show up! What's the slur - "STOP"?

Hey admin...the post to cripplecreek was a joke. He mentioned Squidbillies, the cartoon...and I quoted Early, the star of it. It wasn’t a threat...lol?

Ask him. That was all dialogue from the show.

"Says here your ~-`-'s all retarded, and you sound like a %*$."

: )

"Say something smart!"

(using 3-4 letter words and none of that gay talk).

If their ability to follow a CALENDAR is equal to their ability to PAINT GRAFFITI, then you might be correct.

I didn’t “jump on anyone.” He posted 4 times before I or anyone responded. Count, if you like. Of course now that all my posts have been removed, it looks like I was arguing the entire time.

I guess I should just bend over and relax my muscles, while you two do what you want, right?

Nah. I’m not going to be told I have to be quiet while you two are still free to engage me. I don’t care how much clout you have here.
