OT: LA Times puff-piece/sob-story on poor, struggling immigrant Berkeley student fails to mention history of anti-white vandalism.
He attends elite UC Berkeley but lives in a trailer with no heat or sewer hookups. Soon, he’ll be scrambling to find new shelter

But, unmentioned is Mr Chamu’s skeleton in the closet from the Daily Cal student newspaper:
BY BOBBY LEE | SENIOR STAFFLAST UPDATED JULY 14, 2017
Berkeley Police Department arrested Ismael Chamu on Thursday evening in connection with vandalism that recently appeared on the south side of campus. Chamu is a campus student who alleged BPD officers racially profiled and unlawfully detained him this June.
In the first incident, when Berkeley policemen looking for a burglar stopped him, he tried to ditch a knife he was carrying. He got a popular Facebook post about racial profiling (in which he forgot to mention the knife part) for his inconvenience.
Chamu was arrested Thursday about 9 p.m. at his residence in San Francisco on charges of alleged felony vandalism, misdemeanor hate crimes, hate crime enhancement and conspiracy, according to BPD spokesperson Sgt. Andrew Frankel. …
Thirty cases of vandalism — including slashed vehicle tires and spray-painted messages — were reported to BPD on the south side of campus June 28, according to a Nixle message issued by BPD on July 3.
Oh wait, I meant “skeleton on the front porch”. It’s only in the top 5 results when googling Chamu, after all. Funny that the reporter on the first piece missed it.
Why is it that social justice’s poster children (e.g. Michael Brown, Jackie (UVA)) are so often fraudulent? Is there really no financially struggling Mexican student at Cal more sympathetic than this dishonest and entitled communist?
Berkeley students hoping to obtain professional sinecure in the highly competitive SJW industry can’t just rely upon their GPAs, they have to be proactive! Otherwise, the Tiger Daughters who were raised to make sure their resumes check all the right boxes will get all the good jobs. Poor Mexican male SJWs need to do something to stand out, such as referring to themselves as “They” or committing felonies.
Remember, it’s not Fake News if the Los Angeles Times leaves out of the article pertinent events that could have been uncovered by 15 seconds of online searching.
