A black Bronx man feels he’s being forced out of his luxury high-rise in predominantly white Riverdale after waking Friday to find racially charged graffiti scrawled on his truck for the second time, he told the Daily News.

Menuhin Hart, 54, said he discovered the hateful message: “U Shood Move” spray-painted on his 2011 Dodge Ram pickup truck as he left to run errands with his Army vet brother.

In 2013, his truck was keyed on every panel, and the words “black n-----” were clearly scratched into the paint, he said. …

Something fishy here. Riverdale has a steady percent of black population just under eight percent, and this fellow is somehow “targeted”?

Maybe. But there are still genuine racist @$$hole$ out there. Too bad the hoaxes place doubt on the real ones.

How the hell did the brother's military status get to be part of the story?
More 21st Century "journalism."

Not only that, but “Riverdale man moving after racially-charged messages are vandalized on his car” Now why, oh why, would anyone vandalize a racially charged message?

Our house previous to this one was in a very diverse neighborhood, 17 years ago. A young man I actually knew and his girlfriend lived in the back of the neighborhood. It was all over the news how someone broke into their home and painted racist comments on the walls. Turned out it was his girlfriend. I never did find out why she did it.

If this had happened to a WHITE person it wouldn’t even be news.

About 25 yrs ago we lived in a mixed neighborhood in Spring Valley, NY. At the time there was a nasty housing discrimination suit going on across the Hudson Riv in Yonkers. Some Jewish woman, claiming to be a “community activist” trying to end racism who lived in the “good” part of Yonkers claimed someone painted a swastika on the side of her house. It turned out to be yet another hoax, this was on the heels of the Tawana Brawley fiasco. One of our neighbors, a Black woman who recently moved from there told me she this bimbo has quite a reputation of being a nut job.

You're right of course, racists exist, exacerbated by the racist in chief obama but the race card has been so over played as to be rendered meaningless.

Why would someone vandalize messages? One would think the messages themselves are the vandalism but the headline implies otherwise.

This will get vast nationwide media coverage. Yet, daily, many elderly white folks, who are unable to move out of black ghettos are routinely victims of black racism/violence, with nary a word from the lib MSM.

It must be a hoax. Why would whites in the Bronx want to keep blacks out of their predominately white neighborhood.

“U Shood Move”

This reminds me of one of the details of the infamous Tawana Brawley case that never got any media exposure. Law enforcement officials who were investigating her case in the first few days after the alleged incident were sure it was a hoax from the get-go. Their rationale was based on the racial slurs that were allegedly scrawled on her body by an alleged attacker.

They knew it was a hoax because the word "N!GGER" was spelled wrong.

True story.

Might be a hoax, however isn’t the Bronx predominantly liberal? Given that fact there just might be something to it.

A recent history of hate-crime hoaxes

Includes links to trendsinhate.com(which contains accounts of several real hate crimes as well) and fakehatecrimes.org

Scores of hate crimes documented at trendsinhate.com.. you'd expect to find knockout games, right? Well you do find one. Using google (site:www.trendsinhate.com knockout) I found just this one knowckout game hate crime: "The 79-year-old African-American victim, known only in the press as R.C., sustained a broken jaw in the unprovoked race-based 'knockout game' attack on . . . ." A white man did it and was prosecuted for the crime.

There appears to be literally hundreds of day-to-day crimes classified as hate crimes at trendsinhate.com. They present a year's calendar and you click on a date to get that day's nationwide hate crimes year-by-year. If I had the programming skills to extract data from a mass of data I would look for proof bias.

fakehatecrimes.org appears to be balanced.

Strange. There's a NY comedian named Menuhin Hart that isn't this guy.

Link.

How many guys have a first name of Menuhin.

You are correct sir, but unfortunately, we live in Obama world, where up is down, in is out. I think it will get a lot worse. Sorry I can't be more optimistic, but this has been brewing for a long time, and the government will never allow any type of organized white backlash, no matter how loosely organized it is.

I believe its real racism.

Previously keyed on every panel and now moving from lux high-rise.

Doesn’t sound like the typical self-induced “victim” hoax.

Now...could the perp be a jealous Black?.....

Yes!
