Hey fam – if you’d like to support Turtleboy and what we do here, feel free to hit the donate button at the top. We basically have to run this site like a Bernie Sanders campaign now since we’ve been blacklisted by Google and Facebook, due to the fact that rabid SJWs keep reporting our posts. Getting blacklisted by Google is a death sentence for most websites, since it’s much harder to monetize. And we all know the damage Facebook has done. We’re never going to stop fighting for free speech, but in the meantime the best way for turtle riders to fight back is to donate to the cause. Without you people none of this is possible. We love you all.
We’ve got another potential fake hate crime out of UMass…..
A racist message was found written in a Melville Hall bathroom at the University of Massachusetts on Saturday, Sept. 22. “Hang Melville n******” was allegedly written on the bathroom mirror, according to freshman Melville resident Kiara Batista. Trevor Dority, a UMass residence director, emailed Melville residents at 11:56 a.m. on Monday informing them of a meeting held later that day at 7 p.m. regarding a “bias-related incident that occurred Saturday, September 22 in the Melville lobby bathroom involving the writing of a racial slur.”
UMass Police Department officer, Dean of Students Cara Appel-Silbaugh and a residence director were present at the meeting, which was attended by approximately 50 Melville residents. Batista, a social and behavioral sciences major, said many of the students at the meeting were unhappy with the wording in the email that was sent out.
“It shouldn’t have been called biased, because that makes it seem like it’s not as important as it is. It was literally targeted toward the Black people of this residential space,” she said.
“I understand the position of the administrative staff in wanting to protect the students, but in my opinion, if you’re going to talk about a racial incident, you shouldn’t say specifics, but you should at least allude to what it was and who could be affected by it,” freshman African-American studies major Zach Steward said.
At the meeting, students were told not to speak about the incident outside of the residential building, according to Batista.
“They wanted us to keep it just in our area, but we thought that it was important to reach out and talk to other people because there’s a possibility that the person who wrote it could’ve been from another residential area,” she said.
“Now that I know the language that was written on the mirror, I’m extremely upset. I’m frustrated and I’m hurt, I’m angry, I’m disappointed and frankly, I don’t know what my next steps are, to be honest,” Steward said.
“It’s disheartening to think this is happening in 2018 on a college campus, what is supposed to be considered the flagship campus of the UMass system,” he said. “I thought I was done with this crap in middle school and high school.”
“This incident left many of us feeling really unsafe and we do not feel that the faculty is really dealing with this issue in the best manner. This was a racist threat and we are demanding that more concrete steps be taken,” said freshman legal studies major Sazia Patel.
Don’t worry kids, you have nothing to fear. There’s a really, really, really good chance this never actually happened. Ya know how I know that? Because there’s no picture. Anywhere. I’ve searched high and low for one. Can’t find it. They apparently want us to believe that a young woman of color walked into the bathroom and saw
“Hang Melville n******””written on a bathroom mirror, in a dorm that is apparently predominantly people of color. She then went and got her white ally who was equally as horrified by it. Presumably other students walked in and out of the bathroom and must’ve seen it as well. Yet none of them thought it was worth documenting with a picture?
Even with the Westfield State fake hate crimes last year they at least took pictures:
Are you telling me that multiple millenials, who more than likely have their cell phones glued to their hands and are always on the lookout for racism, found the most insanely racist and threatening message possible in their bathroom, and neither of them took a picture of it or posted it to Instaface?
And honestly, if it was real, who cares? It’s just some dumbass writing words. Their goal would be to get a rise out of you, which is exactly what they got. No one is actually going to lynch you. That’s not how any of this works. If you wanna see death threats then check out our inbox. Guess how many people have actually followed through on these threats? Zero. Because ultimately it’s just words. And words cannot hurt you.
But of course it probably never really happened to begin with. Now comes the payoff. The University will contract with some diversity training company, pay them to come in and brainwash impressionable 19 year olds about their institutional bias, and then we’ll have a new fake hate crime next semester to do it all over again.
