America might have hoped that when Donald Trump passed – figuratively at least – the presidential torch to Joe Biden, we might have seen an end to race hoaxes.
Alas, the problem is that Biden’s rhetoric on race only incentivizes the race baiters and hustlers.
At Albion College in Michigan last week, according to local media, racist graffiti was scrawled on a dorm stairwell. It said “Die [N-word] Please,” claimed the school was “racist,” also featured a Star of David with the number “666” in it, and added “We do exist,” signed by the Ku Klux Klan.
The result was predictable.
As of Monday, more than 450 students and faculty marched in protest, black students blamed the administration for being weak on “anti-racist” policies and threatened lawsuits, and critics maintained the perpetrator should be arrested, charged, and expelled.
Albion President Matthew Johnson landed on the side of the woke, saying in a statement, “We are outraged and angered that this incident occurred within our community. In addition to caring for and protecting the students most directly impacted, and addressing the safety concerns of the broader student body, we are currently investigating who is responsible for racist graffiti on our campus.”
But the post-result result was also predictable.
On Thursday, local media followed up: “Albion College and the Albion Department of Public Safety say a student is responsible for racist graffiti found in a dorm last weekend,” MLive.com reported.
“Albion police brought the 21-year-old Black male in for questioning on April 6, according to Chief Scott Kipp. The student admitted to creating most of the graffiti, and video evidence from Albion’s Campus Safety Department confirms the statements made by the student.”
The student, who inexplicably was not identified, was questioned and released. He also was temporarily suspended and could face charges later.
As usual, the school, instead of admitting it was duped and announcing it would prosecute the student for vandalism and ostracize him for stoking racial hatred, when the other way.
“We know the acts of racism that have occurred this week are not about one particular person or one particular incident. We know that there is a significant history of racial pain and trauma on campus and we are taking action to repair our community,” college administrators said on Twitter.
“We will change and heal together as a community, because we are committed to doing the work.”
