This isn't the first time a person has been caught perpetrating a lie by claiming to be the victim of racism when in reality they staged the alleged racism themselves. Last year, a black sailor staged racist graffiti against himself by scrawling racist words on his bunk.
The U.S. Navy investigated the incident and found it was the black sailor himself who wrote the graffiti. Another similar incident occurred at the Air Force Academy where five black cadet candidates were targeted with racist graffiti. A subsequent investigation revealed it was one of the five black cadets who wrote the graffiti.
Now, yet another case of a faked racist attack has been proven after a student at Goucher College in Maryland was arrested for two separate racist graffiti incidents targeting himself and other minority students. 21-year-old Fynn Ajani Arthur from Brunswick, Maine, was arrested Thursday and charged with two counts of malicious destruction of property, according to Baltimore County police. I wonder why he hasn't been charged with a hate crime? Indeed, if this suspect were white, he would be facing hate crime charges.

What could be the reason that so many individuals target themselves with racism? Oh, that's right, we have a left-wing dominated media that promotes victimhood. That means anytime an alleged "hateful, or racist" attack occurs the mainstream media jumps on it and suddenly the so-called victim is getting national attention.
Baltimore County Police Department released a statement
"The first incident was reported on November 14 when a student found racially charged graffiti written in permanent black marker in a first-floor bathroom stall around 4:30 a.m., including a swastika symbol, a racially motivated threat, and three dormitory room numbers which were occupied by black male students. The students in those rooms were interviewed at the time, and none could provide any suspect information or motive for the graffiti. One of those students was [Fynn Ajani] Arthur."
"Yesterday, around 2 a.m., a student reported more racially charged graffiti in a second-floor bathroom stall in the same building, including swastikas and “KKK,” and appeared to include the last names of four black students, including Arthur."
Although the statement refers to Arthur as black, I'm not sure if this was intended or if it was an error. He doesn't appear black to me, but he could certainly qualify as a minority.

Arthur must not have ever dreamed in a million years he would get caught because he included his own name in the list of targets. There were two incidents over the last month at Goucher College involving the racist graffiti. Both incidents targeted specific individuals by name and included a backward swastika, according to the college's vice president, Jose Bowen.
