Guy Who Shot Himself Blames Imaginary Black Guy in NYC

As a very smart colleague of mine notes, “not even imaginary black people can catch a break.”

 
When under suspicion or in trouble, just use a tactic as old as Methuselah—blame a black guy. Racism makes the explanation plausible, and even chief executives do it.
 
Anywho, the beat goes on. This time in New York City, a 20-year-old accidentally shot himself in the stomach at a Bronx park — and blamed it on a made-up African-American dude.

 

 

Naturally.

I read the article and I'm having a hard time understanding how you are seeing a 'Thread fail".

I was addressing another poster.

None of the Trumpanzee deplorables actually have the guts to explain why they believe it's a thread fail.

I will be very surprised if you get an explanation other than somehow blaming it on Calamari

Was it the same black guy that attacked the young Republican Ashley Todd and carved a B in her cheek?

Good for you, you found another nut!  When Calamari finds a nut it is always a story of National significance.

The OP, based on his history, must have not read beyond the headline. He assumed and desperately hoped the hoaxer was a white guy.

So no other explanation as to why it's a thread fail except to blame the person who started the thread.   :D  :D

At the risk of belaboring the obvious to everyone, some Hispanic dude shot himself and then made up a lie about how he was shot. And said it was a Black guy. A story of national importance? My God the humanity! Trump should have done something! But feel free to revel in your outrage. Maybe we should deport all Hispanics so they don't shoot themselves and blame black people! Or we deport imaginary Black people?

I hope it is clear how massive a failure this thread is. One nutty Hispanic did something stupid and lied about it. I am shocked this is not on the front page of every paper in the world!

It is not a thread failure just because it's not about Trump or Republicans vs Democrats.  It is a thread failure in the eyes of those posters who do not like Calamari and think the only reason she posted it was because she thought the guy was white not Hispanic. Of course, you never see those same posters say that about genghis, etc. for all the black crime stories he posts.  As a matter of fact, I don't remember you saying that they weren't news either.

Why does it matter so much to you that the hoaxer was hispanic?

See? Even you were able to figure out the likely motive for the OP starting this thread based on habit.

That wasn't so hard, was it?
