A black student at Goucher College in Maryland has been arrested and charged after police said he targeted himself and other minority students with racist graffiti.
“Fynn Ajani Arthur, a 21-year-old from Brunswick, Maine, was charged with two counts of malicious destruction of property on Thursday night in Baltimore County,” said a Daily Mail report.
Arthur, a lacrosse player at the school, allegedly graffitied a campus dorm with racial slurs a month after the same dorm was similarly vandalized. The graffiti included swastikas and targeted specific members of the campus.
“Thursday’s graffiti depicted swastikas, the letters ‘KKK’ and appeared to include the last names of four black students, including Arthur. The previous graffiti reportedly said all ‘n*****s’ on campus would be killed,” Daily Mail said.
Arthur was reportedly released on bail and has been banned from the school’s campus pending a review by a student conduct board.
According to the report, the incidents sparked action from Goucher’s black student union.
“A number of students flocked to the space on Friday afternoon to sign a list of seven demands,” the report said. “The demands included the hiring of more black staff on campus, the installation of security cameras in residence halls and the requirement that incoming students take a class on cultural competency.”
Members of the black student union reportedly insisted that Arthur’s actions were only the “tip of the iceberg” of the racial strife on campus, despite the fact that the racial strife was created by a black student. Minor details like these matter not at expensive daycares for adults – commonly called colleges – where victimhood is valued as currency.
