Woman charged with fabricating threats against blacks at New Jersey college – Yahoo News http://news.yahoo.com/woman-charged-fabricating-threats-against-blacks-jersey-college-211019235.html
A lie about phony race threats overshadows real racial threats.
“Kayla-Simone McKelvey, 24, was charged with third-degree creating a false public alarm with the postings, which led to heightened campus security and criticism of school leaders for failing to protect students, the Union County Prosecutor’s Office said in a statement.
McKelvey, a former Kean student from Union Township, New Jersey, attended a Nov. 17 demonstration at the school to raise awareness about racism at U.S. colleges, prosecutors said. She is accused of sneaking away to a campus computer lab midway through the protest and posting messages on Twitter.
“I will shoot every black woman and male I see at Kean University,” read one of the messages McKelvey is accused of posting on Twitter with the username @keanuagainstblk.”
As I have noted before, white feminism and the strategic lie has crept into other social movements.
While these types of lies are effective, they are short sighted, and perpetuate the narratives of injustice.
Another attempt to say it plain, which is, even then not simple.
