Racism is alive and well in 2016, five white teens have been arrested for racial and homophobic vandalism at a rival school. The popularity of Donald Trump in his presidential run has unleashed the bigots of the world. They hear such bigotry coming from a man running to be the leader of this nation and see votes flying in for him, they must feel validation.
I’m sure that this happened in Texas doesn’t surprise anyone, Arlington to be exact. Of course many are trying to downplay the incident as simple school rivalry, but school rivalry doesn’t have race and anti gay speech included. The teens have confessed to writing “Whites Only” over a school drinking fountain and “Trans Only” near a school locker room door. They also drew vulgar things and wrote profanities totaling close to $20,000 in damages.
“They were pretty remorseful. I don’t think they gave a lot of thought to the ramifications, unfortunately, you’re held accountable for, and there’s consequences when you engage in this sort of behavior,” Arlington Police Lt. Christopher Cook said.
“The hate crime statute will be presented to a grand jury,” Lieutenant Cook also told reporters “Since they’re felonies, there will have to be a hearing for indictment.”
This story is ten times worse when I have to tell you that there are plenty who share the same mindset of these youth and the GOP front runner, Donald Trump and are praising this behavior.
Stormfront.org with it’s White Pride World Wide logo, lauds itself as the “voice of the new embattled white minority.”
Freedom of speech is great but let’s look at some of the comments shared in this thread on the racism vandalism:
“20 grand in damages?
A wetback with a pressure washer will have it gone in 10 minutes.
That “cost in damages” is about as insane as charging these young men with a “hate” crime. Vandalism, yes.”
“Negros are actively, deliberately, viciously assaulting whites, permanently debilitating and even killing them, and later posting their assaults online, bragging with their activities, and have yet to hear that one of them got arrested, let alone convicted.
It must be all that white privilege, alright”.
“I see, and how many illegal aliens came over the border today? How much dope came over? Obama has destroyed America.”
Don’t think they are the only ones who feel this way, think about your neighbors, friends, family members and co-workers who are throwing their support behind a man who has ran a campaign of racial religious and economical division. A man who has stereotyped every minority, insulted religious groups and spread his misogynistic views via the GOP.
Ryan Westbrook, 17, Ethan Sigmund, 18, Christian Joeckel, 18, Hayden Honoloka, 17 and Cameron Bodenstab, 18, are all facing felony charges and were given $2,500 bail for their hateful vandalism. Hopefully the proper hate crime charges will be additionally filed.
