Student Threatens To Shoot Every Black Person On Campus. And Then It Turns Out He’s Black.

Miss CJ

This probably classifies as black-on-black violence, so I’m sure the media’s just going to ignore it.

According to this, a threatening message was posted on the social media app Yik-Yak directed at black students at Michigan’s Saginaw Valley State University. The message said that the poster was going to shoot every black student on campus the next day (the message was posted last Friday). Authorities investigated the threat and discovered that the person who posted the message was 21-year-old Emmanuel D. Bowden (who actually goes to a different school, but was living in SVSU student housing). From the article –

Police at Saginaw Valley State University say a threat posted on the social media site Yik Yak read, “I’m going to shoot every black person I can on campus. Starting tomorrow morning.”


The message triggered an investigation and police security response that led to the arrest of a Delta College student living in SVSU housing.


Emmanuel D. Bowden, 21, is charged with making a false report or threat of terrorism, a felony that carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.


According to SVSU University Police reports, a user on the social media application Yik Yak, just after midnight Friday, Nov. 13, posted the message about shooting black people.


The police reports state that, after the post received multiple “negative replies,” the original poster replied with four additional messages that read, “Its [sic] a joke,” “I’m black,” “I was going to give it an hour to see how you all would react,” and “Right. I could be angry and just expressing myself lol.”

So, posting threatening messages on the internet is “just expressing myself.” And the “lol” is supposed to make it okay?

Yeah. Right. Just another attention-seeking idiot trying to cash in on all the protests and racial tension on college campuses.

    So he thinks he can yell “FIRE!” in a crowded theater and then after people have trampled one another to get out, he can say “I was joking” and LOL? I think someone needs to make an example of him by charging him with terrorism and then throwing the book at him (both figuratively and literally).

  • CatoYounger

    It really is amazing how many of these “threats” turn out to be hoaxes or actually perpetrated by black people.

  • Margaret Price

    The classic defense of everyone ever caught having made a criminal threat. “I was only joking!”

    Now, tell me the one about Goldilocks and the three bears.

    Black threats matter.

  • bikerdogred1

    Well, he knows black people maybe thats why he hates them.

  • Scott D

    They need to reat him like they would a white person who made the same threat. Because a white couldn’t claim he was “expressing himself lol”.
