Another Hate Hoax: Woman Arrested For Carving “White Pride” Into Sidewalk of Black-Owned Gym
Another day, another hate hoax.
The words “white pride” were carved on the ground outside of a black-own gym in Johnson, City Tennessee last week.
The local community was outraged and rallied around in support of the business after another suspected white devil defaced the property of a black-owned business.
However, following a police investigation, Mahagany Teague was arrested and charged with vandalism after she used a rock to carve “white pride” into the sidewalk.
A woman has been charged with vandalism under $1,000 after authorities say she used a rock to carve “white pride” into the sidewalk at a Johnson City business.
According to the release, 41-year-old Mahagany Teague vandalized the DC Fitness on Bobby Hicks Highway in Johnson City.
Authorities say she was arrested on Tuesday and has been booked into the Washington County Detention Center. She’s being held on a $1,000 bond.
The business owner told local reporters that when he first saw the words “white pride” carved into the sidewalk, “It hit me in the heart more than anything.”
The gym owner then reviewed surveillance footage and figured out who vandalized his business — and it wasn’t a white person.
It turns out it was just another hate hoax.
