Another week, another alleged race hoax. This time, the actions not only involve alleged fake hate crimes, but also alleged insurance fraud.
Suspect Trumaine Foster is being charged with insurance fraud after his own allegations that his vehicles had been spray painted with racist language. One of his vehicles had the “N****r” spray-painted on it, while another car had “Leave N****r’ and “Trump” along the side of the automobile, according to WREG-TV.
The Mississippi man reportedly has his own body shop where he “specializes in painting cars.”
The Southaven Police wouldn’t say whether Foster was directly responsible for the graffiti, but they did take the man into custody last Friday for “tampering with evidence,” along with the aforementioned insurance fraud.
When local residents heard about the fact that Foster owns a body shop specializing in painting vehicles, they couldn’t believe it.
“That’s just embarrassing,” Shelby Littleton said. “That’s absolutely embarrassing.”
It’s not clear whether Foster was trying to drum up business for this body shop, but it’s pretty clear that if he did in fact spray paint those phrases on the vehicles, he was trying to paint President Donald Trump and his supporters as racists.
