Racism in America is one of two things, and they are both complete and utter bullshit. The first is that rules that apply to all people equally are racist because they disproportionately affect minorities because of their anti-social behavior. The second is, people making up acts of racism that never happened to prove they are victims of imaginary racism. This story is about the latter.
Kathy Mirah Tu, who is Asian, posted her harrowing brush with racism on FaceBook. She has since deleted the post because she is a lying sack of crap. Tu is an undergraduate at the University of Minnesota and before she deleted her FB post, it received 20,000 shares and over 5,000 comments of sympathy.
City Pages reports on the content of Tu’s deleted FB post:
According to Tu, she was walking across the Washington Avenue bridge on the University of Minnesota campus Wednesday when she was accosted by a white man, who was accompanied by a group of friends.
Tu says the man yelled that she should “go back to Asia.” Tu was “shocked,” and tried to walk away from the man, who she says pursued her, telling her she was being disrespectful.
Tu says the man’s call for her to leave the country was especially insulting to her, since she’s an American citizen. She also wrote that he blamed “affirmative action” for her getting into the University of Minnesota.
Tu writes she again tried walking away from the man, who grabbed her by the wrist. She told him to let her go, and he refused, despite Tu warning that he would be “injured” if he didn’t.
City Pages actually managed to capture some of Tu’s words before she deleted her FB post:
“He took my warning as a joke, and said ” okay, lets fight then, you can’t beat me anyways look at how small and shrimpy you are”, and he actually dared to punch me ( more than once). Things got serious really quick cause kathy doesn’t mess around with that stuff. Before he could attack me again I used my self defense skills and got out of the hold he had on my wrist and punched him straight up in the throat ( Which honestly I am not apologetic for what so ever),” wrote Tu.
Tu then says the man’s friends rushed to his aid, accused Tu of “assaulting” her bully, and called the police on her. (Tu’s story doesn’t specify which police department was called to the scene.) When said cops arrived, they initially took the side of the man and his friends, Tu writes, and she was placed in handcuffs while waiting for them to “check [her] information.”
She writes she was eventually taken out of handcuffs, and after hearing a warning delivered in “police jargon” was allowed to leave on her own volition.
But see here’s the thing, this never happened. No police agency that would have responded to this has any record of the incident:
Neither the University of Minnesota Police Department nor the Minneapolis Police Department has any record of responding to a call on the Washington Avenue Bridge.
Remember, Tu said that police responded to this, but clearly they did not.
“Many people have contacted us about a social media posting about an incident with a female on the Washington Avenue Bridge yesterday. At this time we have not been able to find a record of a police call relating to this incident. If anyone has information please contact us, we would like to talk to the person who posted this on social media,” said the Minneapolis Police Department.
The University of Minnesota campus police are also in the dark on this incident. They never heard a thing about it until people contacted them regarding Tu’s FaceBook post.
This has to be one of the worst hate crime hoaxes of all time. If you are going to make up some bullshit, don’t claim that the cops were involved when they weren’t. The police keep pretty good records of the calls they respond to.
Rest easy America. There is no anti-minority racism or hate crimes. The only racism in this country is black people attacking whites because they don’t like Donald Trump winning the election. Since the media doesn’t consider black-on-white assault racism or hatred, we have nothing but racial harmony in this country.
