A black student at Goucher College in Maryland has been arrested for a hoax “hate crime” scare after police found he was the one leaving KKK graffiti at the school.
Police arrested Fynn Ajani Arthur, 21, on two counts of malicious destruction of property on Thursday in Baltimore County.
He was arrested after an investigation was launched when KKK graffiti purportedly aimed at black and Latino students was found on two occasions in the school.
Naturally, with both incidents, students began caterwauling about “racism” on campus and claiming to feel “unsafe.” And just as unsurprisingly they held all sorts of self-righteous rallies to scream out their outrage.
But, like many of these incidents, this one also turned out to be a hoax perpetrated by one of the college’s own black students.
That did not stop the faux outrage from continuing, though.
According to the Daily Mail:
Goucher vice president and dean Bryan Coker condemned the racist incidents during a Friday press conference, according to the Baltimore Sun.
‘These acts of hate have consumed our community and we feel strongly that the suspect should be prosecuted with the strongest charges, which reflect the seriousness of these crimes,’ Coker said.
He criticized Baltimore County police for not charging Arthur with a hate crime, though in Maryland the specific charge of ‘hate crime’ does not exist, Officer Jennifer Peach, a department spokeswoman, said.
The faux outrage is continuing among the snowflake student body, as well.
Officials said the college has reached out to the individuals targeted in the graffiti to offer support, yet many minority students have expressed ongoing concerns despite Arthur’s arrest.
Senior Cydnii Jones told the Sun the graffiti incidents were merely symptoms of Groucher’s larger issue of racism on campus.
Some black students recently started a buddy system for walking in pairs around campus at night.
All this for a hoax and in the face of not one real incident or proof of any “racism” on campus.
The fact is, they just want the issue to pretend over. They aren’t really worried about real racism at all. It’s all just an act employed to make themselves feel powerful.
