Not to start off the morning as a Cynical Sally, but at this point which one of these alleged hate crimes aren’t hoaxes (see Church Vandalized With Homophobic Pro-Trump Graffiti. Yep, It’s A Hoax… and ANOTHER HOAX? Student Admits to Nazi ‘Hate Crime’ Blamed on Trump Supporters…)?
Now let’s pay a visit to Colorado, specifically the Air Force Academy Preparatory School. The racist graffiti that was discovered? The perpetrator wasn’t Larry Dickman from Des Moines wearing a MAGA hat.
One of the black cadets allegedly targeted by racial slurs scrawled on a whiteboard at the Air Force Academy Preparatory School was responsible for the incident, Air Force Academy officials announced Tuesday.
Officials say the cadet admitted to writing the messages on the whiteboard outside the dorm rooms of five black cadet candidates. The cadet is no longer at the school, but a spokesman declined to say whether the student withdrew or was expelled.
The student’s name wasn’t released.
I know accusing people of racism seems to be good for clicks or video plays. But, maybe wait for the facts to come in before reporting someone wrote a thing on a wall? Because the only news value of the original story is “hey, this will make you angry.” When it turns out it never actually happened.
Is there real racism in America? Sure. But if it’s so prolific, why are people making it up? Wouldn’t pointing out actual hate crimes (if America is as racist as the left says it is) be easy?
