A 12-year old boy from Ansonia, CN is in deep trouble after he falsely claimed that he was abducted and assaulted by white men wearing robes. He claimed he was the target of racism when white men abducted him while he was walking home, took him to a local park and sprayed his face with a flammable liquid and set him on fire.

The police quickly determined that it was a complete lie, but not before the boy's mother called the NAACP! That's right; they had barely hung up the phone with the cops and already had the NAACP on the way over to their house!

All of this took place in less than an hour.

The NAACP issued a statement: "We're pleased the Ansonia Police Department performed a thorough investigation and determined the charges were false. However, as a historic Civil Rights organization, the NAACP takes claims of racism very seriously."

It turns out that the child's injuries occurred while he was at a friend's house. The boys were apparently playing with lighter fluid and matches, and the story was made up to explain away his injuries. The tactic has backfired, however, because now the boy may be charged with filing a false police report.

The boy's mother, on condition of anonymity, told the local news she has required her son to personally apologize to everyone affected by his lie, and stressed that her family has no ill-will toward any race. She says she is glad her boy wasn't attacked, but is very upset by the pain he has caused.

OK, so let's give this mom the benefit of the doubt and assume that she has raised her son in a racism -free home. This kid had to learn such deplorable behavior somewhere...and my money is on Cynthia McKinney. Hear me out; I don't think it's that much of a jump!

Not even a week ago, this 12-year old kid watched the news, and saw that if you are a minority and you get in trouble, the race card can be used as a tool to get out of trouble. So, thank you, Cynthia McKinney, and your ilk! Thank you for perpetuating a culture of segregation and real racism!
