Racist Mom Caught Committing Hate Crime Against Kid

by Rebecca Stokes

FootballA middle-school football team in Massachusetts was forced to bring their season to an early close when one of their players' homes was spray-painted with racist graffiti. The attack also included slashing the boy's tires. Initially investigators believed that other members of the boy's team were to blame. The graffiti message said, "Knights don't need *n word*", and during their football games, some members of the team had been known to yell racially charged hate-speak. 

Eighth grader Isaac Philips, the boy in question, is of mixed race, and out of concern for his safety, the school ended the team's season early. What seemed like a cut and dried (if awful) story of racism and hatred came to a close. Now it has come to light that it is more complex than we ever thought possible. 

Currently, it is being reported that the boy's own mother, Andrea Brazier, is responsible for these heinous acts. His mother, who is white, has been a suspect since the beginning of the investigation. This is because her story contains wild inconsistencies. She changed her account of events many times throughout the investigation and finally stopping agreeing to cooperate with police. When eventually pressed by the FBI, she copped to the idea that she was involved but said her son and her husband had nothing to do with it. She gave no reason for her actions, saying cryptically that no one could ever understand why she's done what she's done. 

This story is proof that the face of hate is more complex than we ever knew it to be. We think of sneering ignorant bullies, villains who are easy to identify. But the truth is always more nuanced. Who knows what her reasons were for perpetrating a hate crime on her own son. What matters is that it happened and that this shocking display of hate only further proves the pernicious nature of racism.

Why do you think the boy's mother could have done it?

That's extremely sad if she did do it. =( People have enough worries outside the home, your home should be a safe haven from all of that.

Maybe she did it to get the people who did say racist things during the football games in trouble. It's a possibility the school wasn't doing anything and that was her way to get the attention of someone and pin it on the other kids.

It was probably for attention.

It isnt like this is the first time someone has pulled the race card to get attention (or whatever else they want for that matter...)

So, how many lives were disrupted by this idiot? All those players will never get those games back, their reputations were tarnished because of HER allegations!
How many times did the football coaches throw the" who dunnit" questions at the team?
This lying crap needs to be dealt with harshly !
The lesbian waitress LYING about Christian diners!
College students faking transgender hate crimes the same way!!! 
Seems the only physical evidence of hate crimes is created by the "victims"!!!!  Apparently the need to be/feel like a victim has to be satisfied by manufactured means.... because the thing is, most people in this country are not even close to being racist.  The race card has been played so often in the past 5 years that it is really wrinkled and worn out.  After so many incidentslike this, and they are coming more and more often, I now assume that they are fake.
