This is getting very redundant. It seems like every time something allegedly “racist” is executed on our college campuses, it turns out to be a hoax, and this one is no exception. Last fall black students at Eastern Michigan University protested against supposedly racist graffiti that was painted on the walls at the university.
This graffiti was found three times and now the police have solved the case. Instead of being a white supremacist or a Nazi, it was a 29-year-old black man. They never seem to learn that these hoaxes are counter-productive. People have become desensitized to the news of another racist incident because, quite frankly, it seems the hoaxes outnumber the real deal by a huge amount.
Colleges must be really hard pressed to find racism since many blacks have to commit the crimes themselves and in many cases they lose their lunch over the silliest things. For example, a young black woman claimed to be scared out of her wits when she found a noose outside her dorm. Police were called in and found that instead of a noose, it was merely a broken shoelace.
A black man has been arrested in connection with a string of racist graffiti incidents at Eastern Michigan University that were protested by students on campus last fall.
Eddie Curlin, 29, was arraigned Monday, Oct. 23, in Washtenaw County District Court on three counts of malicious destruction of property, four counts of identity theft and one count of using computers to commit a crime, reports MLive.
The charges are related to three incidents of vandalism that appeared to be targeting the black community at EMU. In September 2016, EMU discovered “KKK” and “Leave N***ers” spray painted in red, white, and blue paint on a wall in the courtyard of Julia Anne King Hall.
In late October, the administration found another “Leave N***ers” message painted in black on Ford Hall. A third incident took place last spring in a men’s restroom.
The first alleged incident occurred last September that led to student marches against racism and elicited a strong reply from the university:
“The deeper and systemic issues that are behind these incidents continue to be a focus for our student leaders, our faculty, our administration and all who care about this institution and the welfare of our students. These incidents run counter to the values and mission of the University and our actions over the past several weeks and going forth have and will continue to reflect that.”
The university says that even though it was a hoax, they will leave all of the new policies intact.
I’d like to take a moment to tell you about my son. My son has been in and out of Trident Medical Center and Summerville Medical for kidney and heart disease. I took him in to Summerville on Oct 16th and while there he suffered a mini heart attack. Then on Friday Oct 20th his heart stopped and it took them 12 minutes to get it restarted. Since then he has been kept unconscious with sedatives to give him a chance to recover. After leaving the hospital, he will need to go to a physical rehab center where he can get 24 hour care. Once he is allowed to come home, he will need to have a nurse come in.
He had to quit working 4 months ago and I am told he will never be able to work again because his heart is too weak. I am on disability and have no extra money to help him out with. I can cover the household bills but no more than that.
He can’t get Medicaid without first getting SSI disability and that takes up to two years in South Carolina.
The money raised will go to expenses he incurs and for medicine and any equipment and any medical care he might need.
