Default The Media Ignores It, But We Just Learned Two More Major ‘Racism’ Episodes Were Fake

The basic gist is a sad one...Phony racist attacks are situations where NO ONE PAYS...The media blindly reports with zero investigations, automatically comes to their pre-ordained conclusion, is found to be false as all hell...and then just move onto the next false racist attack and repeat...

The Media Ignores It, But We Just Learned Two More Major ‘Racism’ Episodes Were Fake

Quote:
Former President George W. Bush once famously said, “Fool me once, shame on you… fool me, we can’t get fooled again.” He was talking (or at least trying to) about terrorism, but by now the same rule of thumb should be used whenever there is an allegation of overtly racist statements being made, especially if it is in the form of graffiti in an academic setting.

For several years now those of us who actually pay attention to the details and follow the conclusion of these types of stories, have noticed a very discernable pattern. Something horribly racist is found on the campus of a college or high school, there is immediate outrage from the media and those in charge of the school, and then later it is quietly admitted, usually begrudgingly and with very little media attention, that the stories weren’t at all as they were first portrayed to be.

The “Poop Swastika” at Missouri, and the “Racist Bananas” in New Jersey and Mississippi will always be among my favorites, though NBA superstar Lebron James getting away with claiming one and then having the story inexplicably disappear forever may be the all-time champion. Already this week we have seen two more major episodes conclude after following a remarkably similar script.


...The news media, filled with politically correct liberals who love a good racism narrative, like Charlie Brown getting tricked by Lucy pulling away his football, fall for this every single time. Of course, part of why it keeps happening is that there is very little, if any, price to pay when it turns out these stories are false. The retraction is a minor deal, quickly discarded with no follow up, and with the general consensus/rationalization being their intentions were good and there was “no harm, no foul.”

However, these stories actually do extreme harm to race relations both as they are being fraudulently birthed, and again when they are ultimately quietly put in their graves. As is so often the case, the only winners are news media who get an easy ratings-friendly story, and the liberal white male academics who get to keep their jobs by falsely blaming the wrong people.

When they run the story 50 times on TV and place it at the top of their front page of their sites and keep it there for three days, THEN when found it to be a lie, run it twice on TV and put it as the 14th story below the top which requires scrolling to see it, I think "ignores" qualifies...

If you REALLY don't think so, maybe using "vastly downplaying" would be more to your liking?...

There is also no apologies or consequences on the media's part for pushing the false narrative by coming to conclusions without investigations...

Remember the Duke LaCrosse players?...

Coincidentally, I have just read this...

More at the link but I want to focus on this one aspect...

Air Force Says That Racial Slurs Written in Its Prep School's Message Boards, Which Provoked a Blistering Speech Against Racism and Viral Panic, Was a Hoax


Quote:
No, it wasn't a hoax, and we must stop calling it that. But I'll explain my reasoning there in a moment.



.....Now, as to why this is not "a hoax," and why we must stop using that word:

Why does someone write a real bit of hate-graffiti? For these reasons:

1. To threaten/worry a racial minority.

2. To stir up racial divisions.

3. To encourage others to express their own racial hatreds (for minorities).


Now, why does a member of a minority group write hate-graffiti?

1. To threaten/worry a racial minority.

2. To stir up racial divisions.

3. To encourage others to express their own racial hatreds (for the group presumed responsible for the graffiti, usually straight white Christian men).


Now, notice that in both cases, the motivations and the intent and the act and even the very words used are precisely the same.

So why is the same sort of hatred written by a white person treated a hate crime -- all prosecutorial tools deployed, minor crimes like vandalism pushed to the hilt, even possible charges of intent to make terroristic threats added -- and the hate graffiti, when written by a not-white, though with the exact same intentions of making minorities fear for their safety, stirring up racial divisions, and directing hatred and contempt at one racial group -- treated as mere mischief?

Why is that if a white guy had written this, we'd know his name and know the criminal charges against him, but now that it's revealed a black guy wrote the hate message with the same intent to cause fear and hatred, his name is concealed, details are withheld, no chargers are tendered, and he's merely asked to leave the school (which, based on this article, it seems like he was being asked to leave anyway)?

Why is a hate crime for a white guy to write a hateful message but just a bit of acting-up shenanigans when a non-white guy writes the same ****ing thing for the same ****ing purposes?

The only time people get charged -- and barely charged, at that -- in these situations is if they make the mistake of filing a false report with the police.

But when they just leave a noose on a door, or scribble some racial slurs a message board, they don't have to file a police report, because someone else sees it and (innocently, unwittingly) does the false filing of the police report on the malefactor's behalf.

This is not a hoax -- this is a hate-crime, or, more accurately, malicious vandalism with the sentencing intensifier of being committed with the intent to spread fear and hatred, just as it would be if a white guy did it.

The fact that a non-white did it does not change those facts
-- and neither should it change the criminal penalty nor the social opprobrium heaped on the miscreant who did it, unless our nation is prepared to officially declare, unconstutionally but with the authority of Spike Lee, that non-whites are incapable of racism and hence any laws regarding racialized crime apply only to one race.

This is not a hoax. This is a hate crime, just committed by a black kid.

Racism is such a tiny prob in this country. Libs and the media have grossly exaggerated what is basically a non-issue.

Truth be told, blacks are far more racist against whites than the other way around.

I heard about it when it was supposed to be true. I did not hear the retraction till now. Be honest Wally, you didn't hear about it till Redd posted either, did you? That being said, shouldn't they be outed to the same degree as when it was supposed to be true?

That is because they have lower the bar for racism to the point where, anything and every word is twisted to be racist. I remember the two black ladies on the Southwest flight. A stewardess got on the PA and said. "eeny meenie miny mo, take a seat we gotta go. Both women tried to sue the airline, and they quit their jobs because of some type of PTSD.
