Media “Forgets” To Mention That University Of Maryland Hate Crime Suspect Is Black
The media only reports what is convenient to its agenda.
A man who has been charged with vandalizing the University of Maryland campus with a swastika is an African-American man who once worked for the college. But if you read the student newspaper or any of the local papers, you wouldn’t guess he was black.
On October 6, the campus newspaper The Diamondback reported the following:
Police issued Ronald Alford, 52, from Hyattsville a criminal summons for one count of malicious destruction of property and one count of disturbing the operations of a school, according to a news release. He was served the summons on Thursday and issued a denial of access to the campus.
A follow-up on The Diamondback describes Alford as a former employee of the university, stating that he has been identified and charged with spray-painting a campus trash cart with a swastika.
“Diversity and inclusion are core values of our institution, and these values will and must be upheld,” read a statement from the university. “We are currently leading forward a campus-wide action plan to combat hate and create a safer campus for all.”
The University of Maryland has been active in its efforts “combating hate” by replacing its state song due to its history with the Confederacy. Among other things, The College Fix reports that the school has even responded to student demands to classify “hate speech” as a cult activity.
As The College Fix pointed out on late Sunday, local news from CBS and an Associated Press report offered the same story, all of which missed the detail about Alford’s ethnicity—a key component of the news story that turns an alleged “hate crime” into a “hate crime hoax.”
The only outlet to identify Alford’s race at all was Fox 5 DC, which wrote:
“Court records show the man accused of spray-painting a swastika inside a residence hall at the University of Maryland in September is African American.
Students were surprised to learn someone who is a member of a race which has been historically oppressed is accused of the hate-related incident.
“I guess it proves that you don’t have to be a certain race to hate people, but I mean, it’s just you would think that someone, especially from a race that has been subjected to hate before, you would think why would you want to reciprocate that to somebody else,” said student Abby Gorun.
It must be more than a little disappointing to them that Alford wasn’t an actual white supremacist. It’s almost as if they want white supremacism to be on the rise.
