The 32-year old “student” Dawit Bezuneh was arrested for scrawling “Death to America” and “Cracker is inferior race” on the walls of his school—Montgomery College/Takoma Park.
This is hilarious! Takoma Park is the hometown of Thomas Perez soon to be Obama’s Labor Secretary, the birthplace of CASA de Maryland (scroll down to second half of this post), and it’s a town that allows non-citizens to vote—hardly a town whose residents could be called ” white crackers.” They “welcome” immigrants there, just like Cambridge, Mass does!
I’m guessing Bezuneh is an Ethiopian refugee or asylee (DC area is loaded with them), but of course no media accounts (I read several) mention his immigration status or his nationality.
Here is the story from Scott McCabe at the Washington Examiner (last Friday):
A 32-year-old District of Columbia man has been accused of vandalizing Montgomery College’s Takoma Park/Silver Spring campus with racist graffiti.
Takoma Park police said 32-year-old Dawit Bezuneh used spray paint to tag “Death to America” and green and red markers to write “Cracker is inferior race,” “white crackers” throughout the school.
Cracker, sometimes “white cracker,” is sometimes a pejorative expression for white people, police said.
The vandalism occurred between October and April and appeared to be racially motivated, [duh!–ed] police said. Graffiti was written inside classrooms, bathrooms, in the library and on computer equipment.
Bezuneh was charged with malicious destruction of property, malicious destruction of property scheme, and race, religion ethnic property damage. More charges are pending, police said.
Readers, assuming he is Ethiopian (but even if he isn’t, this is interesting anyway!), check out this post about an Imam in Northern Virginia stirring up Ethiopian Muslims with “jihad talk.” We have many more posts on Ethiopian refugees so just type “Ethiopians” into our search function for more.
