“I do not believe they were hate crime or hate speech. Part of it quite honestly is because the admitted perpetrator is a young African American woman.”
A black female high school student was identified on surveillance video writing “white” and “colored” over water fountains at her Sacramento, CA high school. Upon seeing the video, she admitted to the race hoax but claimed it was some sort of prank. What sort of “prank” this could possibly be is not clear.

The stunning thing about this particular hoax is the response by the ::: checks notes ::: “community liaison,” Mark Harris. He claims that because the perpetrator is black, the hateful, racist graffiti is not racist, nor is it hateful. I kid you not.
A black female high school student has admitted to scrawling racist graffiti over the drinking fountains at her high school, district authorities said Friday, telling them that it was a ‘prank that went sideways.’
The vandal inked the words ‘colored’ and ‘white’ over two water fountains at McClatchy High School in what appeared to be a reference to segregated drinking fountains found during the era of segregation in the Jim Crow South.
The unnamed girl was caught on video and confessed to the act. The school district has said she will still be disciplined.
It was a prank that went sideways is my characterization of what the young woman said in her confession,’ Mark Harris, a community liaison for the Sacramento Unified School District, said at a press conference.
He said that he didn’t think that the girl was motivated by racism or hate.
‘I don’t believe those words that were on those water fountains were racist,’ Harris said. ‘I do not believe they were hate crime or hate speech. Part of it quite honestly is because the admitted perpetrator is a young African American woman.’
Apparently, there are numerous instances of racist graffiti under investigation in this school district. Any bets on these being similar non-racist, non-hate crime pranks?
