The racial victimhood racket has taken off.
Marcus Owens, a black 19-year-old University of Iowa student, posted a picture of his bruised face and chipped tooth, claiming he was violently attacked by a group of whites for no reason.
The story went viral. Predictably, black students protested, demanding “justice” and an end to “racism.” They called out the University of Iowa (even though the incident occurred off campus). Law enforcement launched a major investigation. The media descended on Iowa City to get to the bottom of this awful “hate crime.”
Everything unraveled when surveillance video of the altercation revealed the truth.
The video showed that the black “victim” was actually the aggressor – shoving and punching people outside a bar. Owens instigated a brawl that left him bloody. But he lied so he wouldn’t get in trouble. He claimed whites hurled racial epithets and attacked him for being black.
Upon learning that their son falsely slandered the entire community, the parents issued the following statement:
“Marcus Owens and the entire Owens family would like to issue their deepest apologies to Marcus’ friends, the Iowa City community, the University of Iowa, and the Iowa City Police Department for the misunderstandings and anxiety stemming from Marcus’ involvement in a violent incident in downtown Iowa City on May 1.”
Misunderstanding? This was a flat-out lie. This guy should be expelled and should pay restitution to the city and people whose reputations he tried to destroy.
I wasn’t surprised to learn that Marcus Owens made up the story. Racial hoaxes made up by blacks and other “minorities” are now commonplace. We’ve seen an epidemic of racial hoaxes and lies that have been accepted as truth by the media, advanced by Black Lives Matter and the Obama administration.
Two black female college students who claimed to be victims of a “racist” assault were recently expelled from the University at Albany. Ariel Agudio and Asha Burwell were dismissed from the college. A third student, Alexis Briggs, was suspended for two years.
Agudio and Burwell were charged with misdemeanor assault and falsely reporting an incident, and Briggs was charged with misdemeanor assault. But the women, all age 20, claimed whites called them racial slurs and attacked them early in the morning while riding a bus – as other white bystanders looked on.
Student protests on erupted on campus against “racism.” Blacks joined the women to smear the university, student body, the surrounding community and police department as condoning a racially motivated attack on black female students. Hillary Clinton even sent out a tweet in support of these women.
Once again, video surveillance footage from the bus told a different story. Investigators say multiple videos of the incident showed no evidence the women were victims of any crime, nor subjected to racial slurs. In fact, police said the women were the aggressors, assaulting a 19-year-old white woman.
There are so few cases of whites attacking blacks, or so-called white “racism,” that spoiled black misfits must make up stories. To stop these black racial hoaxes, we must throw the book at these perpetrators and demand that anyone involved in racial hoaxes serve jail time and pay restitution to the people they’ve slandered.
The entire Trayvon Martin case was built on a lie. Despite the fact that George Zimmerman was found not guilty in the “murder” of Trayvon, he’s still treated like a murderer.
Trayvon’s mother has a foundation; his parents profit from his death. The lawyers, Al Sharpton, and the low-life “racism” accusers who exploited this case have profited. Evil is rewarded as the innocent suffer.
The city of Ferguson still has not recovered from the riots that ensued after the shooting death of Michael Brown. Despite the lies told by Brown’s friends and family, perpetuated by the media and the Obama administration, we now know that officer Darren Wilson shot Brown in self-defense. Eric Holder’s DOJ released a phony “Ferguson Report” discredited by John Lott in the New York Post and the Wall Street Journal’s Bret Stephens. Yet the city of Ferguson has hired a black police chief, believing that its problems are rooted in “racism.” And the entire Black Lives Matter movement and the modern-day race industry hold up Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown as civil-rights martyrs.
The reality is that Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown caused their own deaths. Their own anger passed down from failing parents who didn’t show them love caused them to lash out and got them killed. Both these young men were products of broken homes and selfish parents who never provided love or stability to their sons.
Whites have catered to black people for decades. Now blacks reject any responsibility for their actions or lives.
End this foolishness. Stop coddling pretend “victims,” and start telling the truth. Political correctness brings out the worst in blacks. I’m calling on those in authority to hold these false accusers accountable for their lies and actions.
