Looks like someone wants to give “French actor” Jussie Smollett a run for his money when it comes to alleged hoaxes.
A couple of weeks ago, a mural of Philadelphia civil rights leader Cecil B. Moore was defaced with vulgarities, including the “F” word and the “N” word.
Chris Jackson, a local resident, told CBS Philly that the “timing” and the makeup of the area make him skeptical of the racist defacement of the civil rights mural.
“The timing, it’s Black History Month. It’s crazy,” Jackson said. “It’s a nice black area. It’s just not adding up.”
Jackson’s suspicions might be well warranted considering Philadelphia Police Department (PPD) released surveillance video of a someone they’re saying not only “spray painted racial slurs” on the Moore mural, but also the Brightside Academy and Habitat for Humanity.
Ironically, the suspect at the heart of the racial graffiti is reportedly a “black male, 25-35 years old, medium build, wearing a black jacket, gray sweatshirt, blue jeans, brown shoes and a carrying a black duffle bag.”
You can take a look at the video below:
The motive isn’t yet known, but why would a black man spray paint racial epithets towards other black people on a civil rights mural during Black History Month? The alleged suspect either was trying to frame the people of another race of being racist towards black people or the suspect is just out of his mind. Heck, maybe it’s both.
Either way, there’s no room for this kind of childish behavior. Needless to say, in today’s technological age, someone is always watching.
