POLICE: Racist Graffiti on Dorm Door Ruled Hate Crime Hoax
The College Fix ^ | 3/24/2014 | Jennifer Kabbany

Posted on 03/24/2014 10:02:40 AM PDT by Titus-Maximus

The Grand Valley State University student who found racist graffiti on her dorm room door’s whiteboard in mid-February is the same person who put it there, police have determined.

The racist message had included a stick figure in a hangman noose and the words “black b*tch die” and “f**k black history month.” (Image shown is edited)

“When the incident was initially brought to the campus’s attention, several organizations and groups were highly alarmed, prompting assemblies, discussions in the classroom and a university-wide alert to the situation,” according to the Michigan-based college’s student newspaper, the Grand Valley Lanthorn.

Turns out, the incident joins the long and growing list of campus hate-crime hoaxes across the nation.

“The person believed to be responsible for the drawing and language written on the dry erase board is a Grand Valley student and the owner of the message board,” stated Grand Valley Police Department Chief Renee Freeman on Friday. “The incident has had a disruptive impact on the community and as a result, the student has been referred to the Dean of Students for a student code violation. University policy does not permit the release of his/her name.”

However, based on the message’s wording, it seems likely the student is an African-American female.

But the sentiment is still there, therefore the grievance events will continue as planned.

Ooooooo-kay...... How did they get from point A to point B in that?

What part of those words is "female" and what part is "African-American"?

“graffiti on her dorm room door’s whiteboard”

This gives it away. I don’t consider something that I can erase very easily to be graffiti.

So many of these incidents have turned out to be hoaxes.

Some lesbians painted anti-homosexual graffiti on their house, claiming they were the target of hatred. Turns out they did it themselves, to try to show how the homosexual co munity is allegedly the target of hate crimes.

When I hear these cases anymore, I just assume it is a hoax until proven otherwise, as opposed to being shocked that there is allegedly such hatred out there for whatever grievance group is involved.

I can’t be the only one who now just disregards this type of crap.

Because the hoaxers gets pretty much what they want, and usually get off with little more than a slap on the wrist.

I’ve seen ‘the image’ and can report the writing was not in cursive. Perhaps that is part of the evidentiary conclusion.

It "could have" happened, therefore it is the same as if it did happen.
Everybody knows that racist fanaticize about doing things like this, so we are only exposing what is in their thoughts. /sat.

You should have seen how some of our local media handled this story.

Any person that (on one website) commented initially that this was likely a hoax had their comments deleted, while people that predictably used this as an excuse to paint all of West Michigan as “racist christian rednecks” that were all part of the KKK, were allowed to just rant.

I bet GVSU will just sweep this under the rug. For as “conservative” a place that it is assumed to be, it’s still very much the hippie school it has always been.

That’s a good question, regarding how many incidents are real.

What does it say about the allegedly hateful conservatives, who are not actually perpetrating these acts??

What does it say about the members of the grievance groups, such as blacks or homosexuals, who have to invent these incidents, because such incidents aren’t really happening?

"University policy does not permit the release of his/her name.”

What a steaming pile. If the incident were exactly as advertised and a white person was found to be responsible, his/her name would be know nationally within 24 hours.

You get no more than a C in Ebonics. You used the term “white man,” proving you are one, a serious error. The term should have been either, “m-f’n honkey” or “m-f’n cracker.”

She be axing the world to notice her, to see her grim plight.

No daddy, named something like Shanikia, raised by grandma.

Into college under affirmative action, as freshman reads at 6th grade level (or below).

She has jobs skill, barely, to flip burgers. By age 20 has two kids by two fathers.

She be real angry at her world. She blames whitey, but she should blame her own culture of crime, entitlement and dependency.

They are overlooking the fact that this could be a transgender female who wrote the hate-filled message when it was a man, and once it transgendered into its female counterpart all tensions have ceased. Therefore she can’t be held accountable for anything she wrote as a male but the crime can still be legitimate and assemblies should still be held to stamp out hate crimes. Also, she is fully entitled to restitution from the school.

Now if you can’t see the logic in that, you are behind the times.

The are so many which aren’t even reported in the national media and barely reported in local media, such as a black female college student in Birmingham AL who called her parents and claimed to have been kidnapped by two white males. Many resources were utilised in the search for her, until she was found safe and sound-she had lied so that she could go hang out with friends and drink. An interesting point is that she had pulled this exact same stunt while in high school.

Did you hear a peep about this kidnapping hoax? I didn’t think so. I’ll bet you didn’t hear about the real kidnapping of the two white college students in Knoxville TN who were tortured for hours before being murdered, and the perps (which included one female, all of the perps black) sat and ate breakfast as the girl slowly died.

The real hate crimes are being perpetrated by blacks against whites, but those are either not reported, only reported locally, or the perps are euphemised as “teens”. The really horrendous crimes, such as the young boy blowtorched to death by a black female, are disappeared down the memory hole. If anyone did even a cursory search, they would find more than a couple of such atrocities, besides the “run of the mill” knock-out king, polar bear “games”, mob attacks, and the like. Another such crime is the Witchita Massacre, and the Zebra serial murders from the Seventies-whites were killed and “scored”-ie, white children counted for the most points.

But the article said "based on the message’s wording, it seems likely the student is an African-American female.".

I'm not arguing the conclusion, just wondering what about that wording indicates that conclusion.

No, Eric Holder even said that the hate crime statutes were meant for crimes against blacks, even though the statistics, especially for rape, show that just the opposite is the more common crime.,

Desperation
Sister won’t you come to your senses?
You been out makin’ fences
For so long.
Oh, you’re a smooth one
I know that you got your reasons
The things that don’t please you
Will hurt you, you claim..

You can draw the “tags” of hatred
but they expose when when they’re able
You know when no one sees you
its always the best

Now it seems to me some rabble
Can be roused from your efforts
But you don’t want white ones who’ll
disagree with your hate

Desperation
Oh you aint gettin’ protected
Your pain and your anger, they’re drivin you home
And freedom, US freedom, to you its just talking
Your prison is walking
through this world alone.
