A cursory glance at any number of alleged racially motivated incidents around the country shows that in many cases, the stories are manufactured from whole cloth, or that the complainant was the person responsible for the acts they reported — actor Jussie Smollett being a prime example here. Other cases, like the pull rope in a NASCAR garage, are an example of people seeing what they want to see, lending credence to the old saying that to a person walking around with a hammer, everything looks like a nail.
The overriding question here is if racism is so rampant in America, as the left insists, why do they have to go to such great lengths to fabricate examples of it.
The latest example of this occurred in an Atlanta area community, where a black woman allegedly terrorized her neighborhood by presenting herself in letters as a member of the Ku Lux Klan, according to the Douglasville Police Department. The town is located 20 miles west of Atlanta.
In a statement shared on Facebook, the DPD said residents “began receiving the notes last December from a person who claimed to be a white male member of the Ku Klux Klan, who threatened to burn down their homes and kill them.”
“The notes threatened to burn their houses down and kill them and said that they didn’t belong in the neighborhood,” detective Nathan Shumaker said in the statement.
“The letter is using the N-word, talking about the KKK, hanging people, killing kids, killing whole families, and setting houses on fire,” an alarmed father who received one of the notes told local CBS station WGCL-TV.
The woman, Terresha Lucas, got her desired result with the affiliate reporting, “Residents of a quiet and peaceful Douglasville neighborhood reported that lately, they have become the targets of a local racist who is hoping to spread fear.”
But the police would later state that their investigation led them to Lucas, a 30-year-old African-American female,
Lucas, whom police say described herself as a six-foot-tall white male with a long, red beard who did not live in the neighborhood, was charged with eight counts of making terroristic threats. The letters began appearing in residents’ mailboxes in Dec. 2020, and then again on Feb. 17, Feb. 22, March 1, and March 3, with the last note coming on Sept. 6, after a six-month absence.
Lucas had not been arrested when the Facebook post was shared, with police saying she was “expected to turn herself in to authorities this week.” According to various reports, she was arrested on Wednesday.
While the liberal media would have you believe that white supremacists and KKK members are rampant in America, the average white person can go their entire life having never met either. All of which may explain why stories like this continue to crop up.
Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story from Twitter, including an astute analysis at the end explaining the issue in the terms of a “social justice economy.”

It’s almost as if racism isn’t an actual problem.

Problem: The demand for extremist racism is far greater than the supply.
Solution: Pump counterfeit racism into the market.
This is the social justice economy.
