Hamza Warsame: Killed by Marijuana, not Whitey

A young Muslim from Somalia gets stoned and falls off a balcony to his death. Naturally, white people are blamed.

The headline in last December’s New York Times story was certainly ominous: “Assertions of Hate Crime in Seattle After a Somali-American Teenager Falls to His Death.” The paper said, “The death of the boy, Hamza Warsame, has prompted outrage among members of the Muslim community here, amid assertions—it is not clear from whom—that he was beaten and pushed to his death by a white man.”

Notice how a “white man” was blamed, despite the complete lack of evidence. Where did the allegations come from? The Times seemed not to know.

We now know that the black Muslim teen, a student at Seattle Central College, died from a fall after smoking dope for the first time. In fact, “relatively high levels” of tetrahydrocannabinol, the main psychoactive constituent in marijuana, were found in Warsame’s system, The Seattle Times reported. It said that after smoking the legal dope on a smoking device called a bong, the teen “started talking in agitation about his religion and how he might have put himself in bad standing,” and then said he “needed air.” The Muslim youth “opened the door and was off the balcony before his schoolmate could react,” a report found.

The death of any black Muslim is a golden opportunity for the cultural Marxist grievance industry.

Seattle City Councilwoman Kshama Sawant had written, “Some reports suggest he was beaten and thrown from the building in an Islamophobic attack by a fellow student.” The Washington state chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations called the death “suspicious.” A protest against Islamophobia was held on December 9, 2015, at Seattle Central College over Warsame’s “unexplained” death. Picket signs included “Justice For Hamza,” “Black Lives Matter” and “Unite and Fight Islamophobia.” One photo showed a “F— the Police” sign being held by some Muslim demonstrators.

The death was also an opportunity to attack capitalism.

In the same statement suggesting the Muslim teen was murdered, Councilmember Sawant, an open socialist, put the case in the context of the oppressive capitalist system. “We are struggling for democratic socialist change, where the working people have the control, not the corporations, and where we can finally end the exploitation and oppression that drives Islamophobia, racism, and sexism within our communities,” she said.


Sawant and her comrades on the city council are now considering making Seattle the first city in the U.S. with a “safe-consumption site,” allowing people to use illegal drugs like heroin and cocaine.

Chances are slim that Warsame was killed by racism, Islamophobia, or capitalism. Given his final words, it is more plausible that he was driven to suicide by Islam. More likely still, he was foolishly attempting to jump to another balcony on an adjacent building, as local TV news reported, his mind having been addled by marijuana intoxication. All we know for sure is that on behalf of those attempting to exploit his death by blaming some nonexistent white guy, Hamza Warsame has been added to the Hate Hoax List.

    It’s the new wave of journalism. There is another dimension beyond the bias. A primary object is getting clicks and mentions and shares – almost regardless of whether most are negative or positive in intent. Stories that reinforce narratives best serve these goals when they are first created in a controversial and inflammatory way. Some media outlets eventually do more ‘in depth’ pieces as a follow up. Others just let them stand with their inaccuracies as long as the meet the click and narrative goals.

    It’s no longer about reporting. We are in the internet tabloid era. More “journalists” strive to compete in some ways with TMZ and Perez Hilton than with Woodward and Bernstein from the past era. The bias is the same. The business objectives are different.

    Well, unfortunately…
    Truth, took a “hike” after being totally dissed and “insulted”, by the agenda of political expediency and “artful” deception!

    It looks like they are learning to be another useless victim class. Monkey see monkey do.

    Seattle, a “safe consumption city.”

    Makes sense. Poor folks can’t find jobs due to the $15.00 minimum wage there. Keep them pacified so they don’t revolt.

    Of course no mention of where their money for drugs might come from. EBT cards?

    Doesn’t make ya’ wonder???
    What kind of people, would exploit such a situation?
    The kind that probably, should be here, in the first place.
    Like wow! Look how the family, really screwed the memory of this guy over, in the “AGENDA”, of self promotion and self ingrandizement!
    Lucky for them, huh?
    Maybe, they even got a “few” bucks!

    Boy? BOY? 12 inches of meat swingin’ between my legs and you call me ‘BOY?

    Steny Hoyer does as well, oh my, he is old and white, but hides it well! How I know……. just ask and I will tell! It’s not just the negros that grow it between their legs! Additionally, it is more of a CAN ONE USE IT PASSIONATELY! I understand you are fond of the 12 inchers of dark color, but if a sexy white man, or a cucumber for that matter, were only 10 inches and passionate, which would you like better? You seem fascinated on black size only. Does that mean you are a size queen? You are not making things quite clear, but you are promoting dark skin racism and that is a fact. Try a white boy out that is passionate, perhaps they can put a stiff one in your hole to satisfy you, although it might already be known that you have the loosest hole in ____________________ Perhaps from IBS? Or just you get around too much? Up vote me bro! Damn size queen with a VERY open hole!
