Pretty much guaranteed whenever you have a so-called “hate crime” on a college campus nowadays it’s a complete fabrication. Yet these events keep occurring and nobody seems to notice a pattern.
If there’s such a wave of racism at colleges, why do they need to keep faking incidents?
The students identified as the people behind a recent racist drawing found at Salisbury University’s library are black, school officials confirmed Tuesday.
The image, found April 10 on a whiteboard in Blackwell Library, showed a stick figure being hung and labeled with a racial slur. Underneath was the hashtag “#whitepower.”
The university confirmed Tuesday, April 26, the students involved in the incident were black, spokesman Richard Culver wrote in an email. The university would not provide names of the students, citing the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act.
You can bet your ass we’d know their names if they were white.
This information was first reported in the university’s student newspaper, The Flyer.
Since the incident, Salisbury University Police Department has completed its investigation, Culver said. In consultation with the Wicomico County State’s Attorney’s Office, the department has decided to not file criminal charges at this time.
Oh. So you can perpetrate a “racist” incident, nobody will know your name and you won’t face any charges.
Sounds like black privilege.
The investigation is being turned over to the university and will be reviewed for any possible university policy violations, Culver said. If charged, those students who were involved could face disciplinary action.
“Regardless of who created the drawing, we find such actions demeaning to all members of the campus community and against our core values,” Dane Foust, vice president of Student Affairs, said in a statement provided by Culver.
Matthew Jackson, a senior at the university, said whoever drew that image didn’t understand the severity of it, and the fact that people were actually lynched throughout history. And that’s an issue, he said.
“The main problem … was that someone thought it was a joke,” he added. “(It was) an act of immaturity.”
Yeah, sure, whatever.
