K-State Black Student Union wants charges over racist graffiti hoax

— The Black Student Union at Kansas State University is calling for criminal charges against the 21-year-old black man who defaced his own car with racist graffiti in what he described as a Halloween prank that got out of hand.

The group posted on its Facebook page late Monday a statement saying it was "appalled, disgusted and hurt" by the false report. Police earlier had announced that Dauntarius Williams admitted that Wednesday's incident was a prank. Police said they thought charges wouldn't be in the community's best interest.

The union said that the fact that an African American man was involved should not diminish its effect on students. It urged Riley County authorities to reconsider pressing charges. Reports of the graffiti fueled racial tensions at the university and in the community.

Yup, another hoax hate crime. I agree that the miscreant should be facing charges.

It was on this day in 1917 that the People's Commissars gave power to Lenin, Trotsky and Stalin. Didn't work out so good for Russia or the rest of the world in the long run.

This reminds of the time the congenital Liberal created a dossier out of thin air.

It is too funny the fantasies created by people with the condition.

Is it any wonder they own Hollywood?
