Police Investigate Hate Crime at University of Arkansas

Emily Maher, 4029 TV, July 22, 2014

Officers from the University of Arkansas Police Department are searching for clues they hope will lead them to the man who they believe committed a hate crime on campus over the weekend.


Authorities said someone made racist comments through an open window to two people inside the Garland House.

The Garland House also serves as the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity house during the school year.

“This is considered a hate crime,” Capt. Gary Crain said.

Crain said the man’s comments were “based on his idea of what their race was.”

Crain said the Garland House is currently serving as home for a group of about 25 young professionals from Africa.

They are part of the Young African Leaders Initiative, a six-week exchange program.

“It was dark outside,” Crain said. “They didn’t get a good look at the individual.”


The university issued a statement on Tuesday:

The University of Arkansas was surprised and saddened to learn of this harassment and hope that this single act of intolerance doesn’t negatively impact what was otherwise a valuable and enriching opportunity for both the fellows and the university. This attitude is not reflective of the U of A community or our community at large. We believe in inclusion and tolerance and regularly welcome guests from near and afar.


Police said if a suspect is found, he could face criminal mischief and harassment charges.

    You can’t have a “Young African Leaders” conference without a fictional hate crime.

    • me

      Words are a ‘hate crime’. Next, it will be ‘thought crimes’. What thin skin these darkies have! OOPS!

  • Einsatzgrenadier

    “Hate” crimes are good for blacks because it allows them to milk white guilt for free gibsmedat.

    • LHathaway

      I liked your comment, but I’m not down enough with the brothers to know what ‘gibsmedat’ means, without guessing.

      Whether I’m offending that you are so down with black folk, and know all their secret words and rituals, or whether I’m offending because your bigotry (at least your ‘gibsmedat’, is so crude as to be self defeating toward whatever point you are trying to make beside it), which of the two offends me, or offends me more, I’m not sure.

      I’ve lived long periods in very poor black neighborhoods. I’ve never heard a black person of any socioeconomic background use the term ‘gibsmedat’ or utter any thing, that to me, sounded anything like, ‘gibsmedat’. Maybe I’ve heard, ‘Give me a beer’ but it did not sound to me anything like ‘gibsme’, let alone ‘gibsmedat’.

      I come here to get away from Ebonics. I come here to try and be a ‘respectable’ racist. From either angle, your ‘gibsmedat’ took away from an otherwise nice post, from my perspective anyway (I suppose most of us in reality are performing for the regulars and not trying to gain more converts). But that’s just me. And they Are just words. Or they were.

      • LHathaway

        ‘gibsmedat’ isn’t that bad. It’s simple. It beats the endless serious of words in ebonics one sometimes reads here. Thankfully, that’s been toned down by a lot of contributors. I might add that perhaps my complaints had something to do with posters using ebonics less and less.

        I’ve actually read one poster who trailed off into ebonics that her post was quite effective. gibsmedat comes close to be effective, I would imagine. Perhaps it is effective. Sorry if I complaining too much.

          • Wholly Unconvinced

            Hahahaha, Thank you so much for that, I keep typing up a couple paragraphs in response to these idiotic “wannabe intellectual” posts this person keeps making all over, and then not posting them in an attempt to stay civil, but this one was just too much, and I gathered my determination to actually just tell them to quit with the airs of intelligence while they were behind, only to see this, a single word that sums it up beautifully.

            So again, Thank you, and I’d like to second your statement, for it bears repeating,…


          • LHathaway

            “wannabe intellectual” posts

            That’s called talking. But I suppose, to you, anyone who doesn’t have ‘gibsmedat’ as part of their active vocabulary is an intellectual.

      • kjh64

        “Gibsmedat” is ebonics or Black speak for “give me that” as in “give me all the government freebies I’m entitled to YT.

        • LHathaway

          I think it more likely ‘gibsmedat’ is a phrase used by WN types to describe what the think are African American attitudes.

          I’ve mentioned it before, most rank and file whites, who aren’t themselves nearly completely immersed in ebonics, adopt black mannerism and modes of speaking in a joking way, because on some level they think this allows them to intimidate other whites.

          We have to use one such ebonics phrase here on AmRen (even if it is our own made up one), right?. Yes, one such word or phrase is not too much for WN’s, I’ll give you that. ‘Gibsmedat’ wouldn’t be a bad one to adopt as our one silly phrase. I can be a jerk sometimes.

          • 2eRep

            Nobody here cares who you think troll.

  • Calling some porch-monkeys what they are is a hate crime. Gang-raping Channon Christian is not. These cops need dirt-naps. I hope I get to sit on a jury someday, just so I can walk a cop-killer.

  • Truthseeker

    At one time I would’ve thought this was sad and unfortunate. Now I just don’t care. These stories are a dime a dozen, and as long as we’re suck with unwanted diversity, they’ll always show up.

    • Publius Pompilius Quietus

      Because of something rude said to Blacks, police have started an investigation. This story reaches the level of self-parody. Someone who shouts rude things out a window to people of another race is a troll, but not a criminal. In fact, I’m sure if the races were reversed, neither the newspaper nor the police would care.

      • Black Swan

        What is outrageous is that valuable police man hours are devoted to such utter and sheer nonsense, instead of robberies, rapes, murders, carjackings, shootings, etc.

        One more of a million reasons why the Second Amendment must be defended with everything we’ve got.

        • A fair question: How many campus thefts of bicycles, laptop computers and other valuables are being ignored while the cops indulge in this wild goose chase?

    • Kenner

      You misspelled ‘stuck’, or perhaps not.

      • Truthseeker

        Thanks for catching that. I did mean “stuck,” but the typo wasn’t completely inappropriate either.

  • MekongDelta69

    I’m thinking (I know – a dangerous prospect)…
    How many black on White crimes have been committed in the last 50 years?
    Just wondering…

    • propagandaoftruth

      “It was dark outside,” Crain said. “They didn’t get a good look at the individual.”

      Sounds like it was pretty “dark” inside. Oh man…this is rich…too many angles of ridicule to choose from…

    • LHathaway

      How many black on white crimes were committed this same weekend in Little Rock? We don’t even need to count up racial slurs or aspersions.

      • bilderbuster

        Yup. But the University of Arkansas and the campus police along with their friends in the media know that a possible racist comment from the boogieman in the bushes is a much bigger menace to society.

    • Den Christe

      p { margin-bottom: 0.08in; }

      those cases in which the race of the killer is known, blacks kill
      twice as many whites as whites kill blacks. Black-on-white robberies
      and gang assaults are twenty-one times more common than white on
      black. In the case of gang robbery, blacks victimize whites fifty-two
      times more often than whites do blacks. [318]

      The contrasts are even more
      stark in the case of interracial rape. Studies from the late 1950s
      showed that the vast majority of rapes were same-race offenses.
      Research in Philadelphia carried out in 1958 and 1960 indicated that
      of all
      rapes, only 3.2 percent were black-on-white assaults and 3.6 percent
      were white-on-black. Since that time, the proportion of
      black-on-white rapes has soared. In a 1974 study in Denver, 40
      percent of all rapes were of whites by blacks, and not
      one case of
      white-on-black rape was found. In general, through the 1970s,
      black-on-white rape was at least ten times more common that
      white-on-black rape. [319]

      Because interracial rape is
      now overwhelmingly black on white, it has become difficult to do
      research on it or to find relevant statistics. The FBI keeps very
      detailed national records on crime, but the way it presents rape data
      obscures the racial element rather than clarifies it. Dr. William
      Wilbanks, a criminologist at Florida International University, had to
      sift carefully through the data to find that in 1988 there were 9,406
      cases of black-on-white rape and fewer than ten cases of
      white-on-black rape. [320] Another researcher concludes that in 1989,
      blacks were three or four times more likely to commit rape than
      whites, and that black men raped white women thirty times as often as
      white men raped black women. [321]

      Interracial crime figures
      are even worse than they sound. Since there are more than six times
      as many whites as blacks in America, it means that any given black
      person is vastly more likely to commit a crime against a white than
      vice versa.

      how many black on White crimes are ignored b/c police are busy chasing down perps who may have shouted something silly at a window.

  • David Ashton

    Do you now have “hate speech” laws in the Land of the Fee & the Home of the Rave?

    • No, it’s just the officials mouthing off. Notice at the end the charges he could face.

    • Black Swan

      Yes. Just like in merry olde England where the police are diverted to chase down major crimes such as offensive speech by Whites to blacks or Asians.

      If or when caught, expect major jail time and heavy fines. England, the land of Orwell, has no Free Speech; it is already a police state.

  • TruthBeTold

    I’m just thankful it wasn’t a group of blacks physically attacking a White student.

  • Looks like I pushed the envelope a bit far, but my point still stands, and the whole “Just following orders” excuse was laid to rest at the Nuremberg Trials.

    • dd121

      The principle of law that the Nuremberg trials established, is that the winners hang the losers. See also, Iraq.

      • Soddamn Insane was hanged by his own people. It’s one of the occupational hazards of running a police state, as the Ceausescus earlier discovered in Romania and Ghadaffy Duck later did in Libya.
        Being a dictator might make for a very pleasant living, but the retirement plan often really sucks.

        • dd121

          The world would be better off if Saddam were still alive and in power. He kept all the religious groups in line.. but that’s another story. We didn’t pull the lever but we set the stage.

        • Black Swan

          Killing Soddamn Insane destabilized the country which was the prime objective. There was never any agenda to democratize the Middle East.

          Inciting Civil War, which is the new normal in Iraq, in perpetuity as far as I can see, keeps the Iraqis busy fighting one another rather than uniting against the most favored ME nation.

          Now on to Libya, Syria and the big prize: Iran.

          Not one White American life is worth so much as an inch of those hell holes, including Israel.

        • Wholly Unconvinced

          The retirement plan really sucks when a meddling foreign power decides to cut off your monthly payments by force.

          Saddam was exactly who, and what the shiftless, backwards, perpetually lazy Muslims in Iraq needed and deserved. Removing him was absolutely asinine.

      • Black Swan

        Amen and thread winner, dd.

        The war criminals who should have been tried and hanged by the neck were Stalin, Churchill and FDR.

    • bilderbuster

      The Nuremberg kangaroo court show trials should never be used as an example of a legal or any other kind of justice system.
      Aside from massive torture and false confessions most of the ridiculous “crimes” like “Crimes Against Peace” were ex post facto “crimes” that didn’t even exist when they were supposedly committed.
      the National Socialist government was elected in 1933 by the German people in free and internationally observed elections where communist and even Jews were allowed to vote and was the last legitimate government in Germany.

      • Those were still violations of the Hague and Geneva Conventions, as well as the rules and customs of land warfare.

        • bilderbuster

          You mean the conventions, rules and customs that Churchill, Stalin. Roosevelt, Truman and Eisenhower so strictly adhered to during and even after the war?

    • Weston

      I live in this darkening state, Sick. We put up with everything illogical like they do everywhere else. Here in Stuttgart, AR, a young white man, putting himself through college with two part time jobs was gunned down in the street by three worthless thugs earlier this week. Two streets over from me. This part of town is (was) halfway decent. This 20 year old kid walked his dog every day. They demanded his wallet and he didn’t have one on him so they demanded his phone. Instead of complying he ran for home and they shot him in the back. One of the scum (not the trigger man) is the chief of police’s son. The accomplices were questioned as witnesses and released. I mention this because I’d be grateful if Mr. Taylor or one his associates would pick this story up. Needs to be told. Let us imagine three white boys gunning down a black boy walking his dog and two of the perps going free…

      • Black Swan

        Mr. Taylor can’t pick up all the stories of black-on-White crime or even a few because there are so many.

        check here and count how many black-on-White crime stories there are just from today.

        • Weston

          Thank you for the link Swan. I see that you’re right. That site is nauseating. It’s no wonder that people would rather be blind to something so hideous as these people. The public needs to know though. My third term pregnant wife was walking a mile around the block trying to induce labor just a week or so before. She would’ve made an easy victim and these savages don’t care. It could’ve been her. There had been muggings all over the area in the weeks prior but it was hushed up by our local paper. These media people censoring life saving information from the public need to be strung up. They’re killing our decent citizens and letting the monsters run wild with impunity.

      • Sick of it

        I’m truly sorry to hear that. We have a black mayor who has yet to be imprisoned for massive theft. Her husband is the chief of police in a nearby town…he was involved and isn’t even being charged. Criminals cannot be dealt with through the corrupt legal system in this country.

        • Weston

          Are we just too lazy to bring these people to account for what they’re doing? Are we too comfortable and complacent to get in an uproar about something that doesn’t directly effect us right now? When the DEA comes to do a bust here in the ghetto after months of setting up they can’t notify the city police. The first time they were notified and when they did the raid everyone was clean as a whistle after months of surveillance. Tipped off from the people supposed to be protecting us. Race realism helps me protect my family. Liberalism is deadly.

          • dd121

            He did have a tendency to use a flame-thrower at times. Would the moderator folks let him conditionally return if he promises to behave himself? I did admire his passion.

            The reference to “I am Spartacus” comes from the 1960 movie Spartacus starring Kirk Douglas. At the end of the movie when the Roman army defeats the slave Spartacus army, they demand to know which one was Spartacus. In turn, after Douglas admits to being the leader of the revolt, they all in turn defiantly claim to being Spartacus. It’s saying “we’re going to hang together with out leader, if case you didn’t know the reference.

            In reference to this article when I say “I am Spartacus” I’m symbolically admitting to being the “hate crime” perp.

            Love that flick. Especially the Tony Curtis character’s poetry recitation in his native Brooklyn-ese: “yonda lies the castle of my fodda.”
            No way could Curtis live that down, so
            the new releases over-dubbed his voice in non-Brooklyn-ese.

Doesn’t matter, usually you can just re-post your deleted comment in another thread and it slips through. Here’s a toast to all the posters on AR: you’re all cool kids.

          • Diana Moon Glampers

            When I first discovered AmRen, it was Spartacus whose comments I most looked for. I understand that the goal is thoughtful & intelligent commentary, but this is a website that specifically reports articles that are about controversial subjects. At least half of them should induce outrage in any aware white person. Spartacus expressed that outrage really well, and from an interesting perspective (as he is in Eastern Europe). While it is my understanding that he regularly wrote of his desire to eliminate certain people, and this is a violation of the standards here, I feel that AmRen’s community of posters is missing out on valuable contributions.

        • Black Swan

          I cannot repeat what Spartacus wrote when I asked if he wanted to come back.

    I might be tempted to call out a word or two myself if a group of 25 aspiring Idi Amins and Robert Mugabes strolled past my window.

    • Who Me?

      U of A, presently University of Arkansas, soon to be “University of Africa”. But look on the bright side, they won’t have to change the initials…….

  • Rhialto

    Also the “police” were the university security types, not a governmental police force. The perpetrator would face, at most, expulsion from the University of Arkansas. More likely she or he would be forced to make a contrite apology to all those offended.

    • Lots of university police are real cops, city, county or state, and not just Pinkerton employees.

  • Who Me?

    Well, does anybody remember the “Wichita Massacre”?

    ***Jonathan and Reginald Carr were sentenced to death in 2002. Their December 2000 crime spree, known as the Wichita Massacre, included the kidnapping of three men and two women in a home invasion that included rape and sexual humiliation.
    The five victims were shot in the head; one survived.***

    Yep them. Now their death penalties have been overturned due to some BS about how “they should have been sentenced separately” or something like that.
    Forget that they should have long since been worm food. Give the damn courts another few years and their new ‘life w/o parole’ sentences will be overturned and they will be walking the streets, free as birds.
    I guess this came up too late to get on AmRen, until Monday, but you know what? Just wait awhile, and the same thing will happen with the “Knoxville Horror” killers. You know it will.

  • JohnEngelman

  • LHathaway

    “University of Arkansas Police Department are searching for clues they hope will lead them to the man who they believe committed a hate crime on campus over the weekend”.

    ‘Racist comment’? I wonder how many whites were menaced this same weekend in Little Rock, let alone physically accosted? To say nothing of racist comments directed against them.

  • LHathaway

    “This is considered a hate crime,” Capt. Gary Crain said. . .“It was dark outside,” Crain said. “They didn’t get a good look at the individual.”

    You can’t make this stuff up. Maybe it’s only funny to me because I’ve been ‘drinking’.

    • Someone very likely *DID* make this “stuff” up. After all, what would a “Young African Leaders” conference be without a racial incident hoax?

    • bilderbuster

      No. It’s funny.
      Just not THAT funny 🙂

  • LHathaway

    What if one guy said to another, “You’re bigger than me”? Or something similar. Anything similar.

  • Not sure about here, as my only interaction with University of Colorado police was in the winter of 1990-91. I had driven to the lab to check on the progress of a chemical reaction, and was walking from my car when I heard another vehicle sliding along the ice. The “kaboom” of the collision was amazing. Fearing that it was my RX-7 that had been hit, I (carefully) ran back to see that the driver had hit one of the university’s “Suburban” 4X4s, caving in the driver’s door. They backed up and drove away, without leaving a note. I got their license plate and called CU cops from the lab. They met me there, drove me to the house the car was registered at, and I positively ID’d it for them. Unfortunately for the idiot driver, he was also drunk, so he got a DUI in addition to “hit and run” charges.

    Those university cops were at the very least genuine city cops.

    Some law-enforcement officers have multiple jurisdictions. One of the BATF agents here in Colorado Springs (a really nice guy in spite of that) is also on the county sheriff’s bomb squad. It means he is authorized to make arrests for things outside normal BATF duties.

  • LHathaway

    lol, Meanwhile the curriculum itself is hateful toward white men and no one has said a word. Except for one ‘Nazi’ in the state, who is paid by ‘HateWatch’. Another, guy out of state, with confederate flags all over his apartment, who maintains ties to ‘SPLC’, a third far-right separatist who is working with the FBI, one 80 year old guy who stands by ‘the real Democratic party’ although he maintains friendship with a few new Democrats, and another guy who is a member of Church of Odin and whose true sympathies with ‘ClanWatch’. All groups textbooks on campus sometimes advise student to join so they can ‘make a difference’. The ex-cons in Aryan Nations of Little Rock are more interested in a new import beer that’s reached the club. No one cares that the curriculum on campus itself is (likely purposefully) defaming white men. The only ones that care are the ones who think course should ‘disspell stereotypes and ‘increase social justice’ more than they already do. With everyone else on campus too afraid to object. They’ve seen how it works and that it would be unwise To object.

  • Viv J

    If this story is true … So what. When I was a white teen in a neighborhood of blacks and Mexicans, people (many of whom were adults) yelled racial stuff at me all the time. I just didn’t care. If I was in a playful mood, I’d yell insults back at them (I’m fluent in Spanish profanity), then move on with my day. Usually not even interesting enough to warrant mentioning to anyone. Minorities are such big babies.

    • Minorities have been encouraged in their pathalogical hypersensitivity by white cultural Marxists. The last time anyone told me that Scots are cheapskates and Irish are lazy drunks, I shrugged “So what?”

  • Paleoconn

    If the hate-speech gestapo could only hear the things I say at home, I’d probably get the electric chair. We are no longer living in a serious society, and no longer led by adults. I have to say that i feel some glee in being alive at the time it all goes down gne toilet. This is not the twilight of our civlization, night has fallen.
