Black Posed As A ‘White Supremacist’

A shocking (albeit belated) revelation from CNN:

Man pleads guilty to racial threat using fake Facebook account

(CNN) — An African-American man has pleaded guilty after being accused of impersonating a white supremacist in a fictitious Facebook account to make death threats against an African-American university student.

Dyron L. Hart, 20, of Poplarville, Mississippi, pleaded guilty Wednesday before U.S. District Judge Kurt D. Engelhardt to one count of communicating threats in interstate commerce, according to a Department of Justice statement.

Hart admitted creating the fictitious account in November, pretending to be a white supremacist outraged by the election of Barack Obama as the nation’s first African-American president, the statement said.

He then transmitted a death threat via Facebook to an African-American student at Nicholls State University in Louisiana, saying he wanted to kill African-Americans because of Obama’s election, according to the statement.

A court document provided by the U.S. attorney’s office said Hart told an FBI interviewer that he intended the threat to be a prank "to get a reaction."

The document said Hart admitted creating the Facebook profile under the name "Colten Brodoux" and used a photo of a Caucasian man that he found on a white supremacist Web site.

"This is an extremely odd case, a very unusual case," said U.S. Attorney Jim Letten of the Eastern District of Louisiana.

"The contents of the messages were extremely troubling and provocative and very threatening."

Hart will face a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine when sentenced November 18, the statement said.

Faithful readers will recall that we reported this back in November.

At that time we noted that the story was only reported by the local news. And even now with this admission of guilt, it is only being reported by CNN and none of the others in our watchdog media.

Even so, CNN leaves out some of the more piquant details about Mr. Hart’s emails.

Here are some excerpts from that earlier article from the Associated Press:

FBI investigators trace messages to phony Facebook profile

Nov 14, 2008

A 19-year-old Mississippi man is facing federal charges after allegedly sending threatening e-mails with racial overtones to students at several universities, including Nicholls State University and LSU, according to an arrest affidavit.

On Wednesday, FBI agents arrested Dyron Hart, of Poplarville, Miss., and booked him with sending threatening e-mails, stemming from messages he sent to three black students attending Nicholls State, in Thibodaux.

Hart is black.

Hart told the FBI that he wanted to “to create a reaction” after Barack Obama was elected president, according to an arrest affidavit…

Hart allegedly created a false profile of a white man on Facebook, a social networking Web site. He is accused of using that profile to send e-mail messages to people listed as his own friends.

The affidavit included the entire text of the identical e-mail messages sent to two women students and one male student at Nicholls State, along with students at LSU, at universities in Alabama and Mississippi, as well as other recipients in the Poplarville, Miss., area.

It included four racial epithets.

Hart allegedly wrote, “I bet your all proud that you just got a black president huh. Well im here to tell, Barack just maid me your worst nightmare. … Because of him I have to kill you. I have plans to off over three thousand (racial epithet deleted) in a months time because of Barack.”

Hart allegedly went on to say he was debating whether to start off by killing the people he selected to receive his messages.

“By the time you’ve read this I will have already planned on how I will kill you,” Hart wrote, according to the affidavit. “I’m just letting you know so your not surprised when a random white man is walking down the street just split your (expletive deleted) head wide open.”

The e-mails were sent to the Nicholls students in the early morning hours of Nov. 5, just hours after Obama was declared president-elect

Funny how CNN neglected to mention these “racial overtones.”

And just imagine the uproar if a real white supremacist had really sent such threatening ‘hate speech’ within hours of Mr. Obama’s election.

The Southern Poverty Law Center would finally have had a real story.

Funny how they only hammer on the BLACK STUDENTS that were threatened and not the white / other students that were also emailed.
