Blue Check Mark Nobody Deletes Racist Hurricane Florence Tweet After Backlash

Published

on

A relatively unknown science fiction author was forced to delete a racist Tweet about Hurricane Florence after he was hit backlash and facts from Twitter users, including this reporter.

“The one good thing about Hurrican #Florence is that it’s going to hit an area full of white poeple,” said Wesley Chu in a now-deleted Tweet. “I’m sure FEMA will get right to work restoring power and rebuilding the area.”

After being provided with factual information and rightfully getting chided for turning a natural disaster into a racial debate, Chu decided it would be best to stop displaying his ignorance publicly.

“North Carolina’s black population is double that of the national average. But don’t let facts get in the way of your white hate!” this reporter Tweeted.

North and South Carolina will be heavily effected by the storm. To coastal elitist know-nothings like Chu, who lives in Los Angeles, the Carolinas are just hick towns “full of white people.”

As noted in the Tweet, North Carolina has a black population nearly twice as high as the national average, at 22 percent. South Carolina has a black population of 28 percent, which is more than double that of the national average. Black Americans make up about 12 percent of the population.

Upon learning this, Chu backed off and deleted his Tweet. But any reported worth his salt stays on the beat, so I made sure to document Chu’s ignorance and hatred for white people, which will now remain on the internet forever.

There is nothing good that can come from politicizing what will surely be an enormous natural disaster, and certainly nothing good about being a pathetic anti-white racist.

Oh, and for the record – FEMA does not play a role in restoring power after a hurricane. Thanks for playing, Chu!

SICK: American Icon Plymouth Rock Vandalized, Spray-Painted in Massachusetts

It’s likely the vandalism is an anti-American hate crime.

Published

on

An icon of American heritage and civilization, Plymouth Rock, was found vandalized and spray-painted upon Monday morning by criminals at its namesake in Plymouth, Massachusetts.

Plymouth Rock symbolizes the first arrival of the pilgrims from England in North America in 1620 A.D. The vandalism was found just weeks before a ceremony intended to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the pilgrim’s arrival in Massachusetts.

The large boulder is marked with the characters ‘1620’ to symbolize the pilgrims’ arrival. The rock was the first sight of those who disembarked from the Mayflower in the New World.

It’s unclear what the red spray-paint on the rock is intended to convey, but there’s a strong possibility the vandalism is motivated by hatred towards the icon of American culture.

In addition to the rock, the spray-paint vandals also targeted a nearby statue intended to commemorate the first pilgrims to arrive in North America.

It’s also noteworthy that the vandalism was found on President’s Day, suggesting a further possibility of anti-American hatred as a motivation.

400th anniversary celebrations of the pilgrims’ arrival are scheduled for April, and to this day are a point of pride for many of their descendants who live in Massachusetts.

The director of a Plymouth cultural and tourism agency, Lea Filson, expressed her disappointment to see the icon of America so disrespected.

“Seeing this type of disrespect for the historic reminders of the Mayflower story is both sad and unsettling. The outpouring of concern and anger over the incident has been a positive ending to a thoughtless gesture.”

The town of Plymouth has already removed the vandalism from the rock, and local police are investigating to locate the culprits.
