FAKE HATE: Swastika at UMD Campus Was Drawn by Black Former Employee #HateHoax
Police announced this week they found the racist vandal who spray-painted a swastika at the University of Maryland campus.
The man is a former employee — and he’s black.
Racially charged graffiti—including a swastika—was found in a men’s bathroom at the University of Maryland last fall and reported to the authorities as a hate crime.
That case is now solved. The perpetrator was Terrell Demonte Alexander, an 18-year-old former university employee. According to The College Fix, Alexander is black—which suggests this incident was a hoax, or at the least an act of intimidation committed by a member of the targeted minority group.
It’s the second such deceptive case at the university in the past few months. Last October, police arrested Ronald Alford, a 52-year-old black former employee, for spray-painting a swastika on campus. At the University of Maryland, workplace grievances seem to be more important motivators of bias incidents than racism.
In October another black man was arrested for spraying a another swastika on the UMD campus.
