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!
British Police Officer CRIMINALLY CHARGED for Sharing George Floyd Meme in WhatsApp Group
Free speech is dead.
A British police officer has been criminally charged over a George Floyd meme he allegedly shared with his colleagues in a WhatsApp group.
“Sergeant Geraint Jones, aged 47, is charged with sending the image on 30 May last year by means of a public electronic communications network, an offence contrary to section 127 of the Communications Act 2003,” a watchdog from the Independent Office for Police Conduct announced. “An altered image of George Floyd’s arrest in Minneapolis was shared within a WhatsApp group that included a number of other police officers and staff.”
“Our investigation began in June 2020 following a referral from the force,” the watchdog continued. “At its conclusion in October we sent our investigation report to the Crown Prosecution Service, which has authorized the charge.”
Sergeant Jones is scheduled to appear in court on January 28. He has been suspended from duty since June.
It’s no secret that free speech is all but dead in the United Kingdom. British elites stand out in particular for their fervent belief in neoliberal globalism and veneration of its secular saints. Their society encourages people to snitch and tattle on their fellow citizens to a higher degree than most any other Western nation.
George Floyd is also one of the neoliberal order’s foremost secular saints. Anything you say about him that isn’t equivalent to hero-worship will get you put on notice. Criticizing the intensity of his veneration and the Black Lives Matter movement itself are sufficient to get you labeled as a depraved racist and fired from your job—even in the United States.
Don’t think that hate speech laws aren’t possible in America either. If a majority of Americans and legal scholars in a decade or two come to believe that the First Amendment doesn’t protect “hate speech,” who’s to say that the laws won’t be changed to reflect that?
