Demetrius Nathaniel Pitts, above, who also goes by Abdur Raheem Rafeeq, and some other Arab names, just pled guilty to planning a bombing attack like the one that actually happened at the Boston Marathon. This attack, if it had happened, would have taken place on the Fourth of July last year.
News headlines about Mr. Pitts say that he's an "al-Qaeda sympathizer" (Yahoo), a "Maple Heights Man" (WKYC), an "Ohio man" (Fox), and a "Man."
These are actually true things, although leaving out black and Muslim. Many times when you hear a terrorist is a "Queens Man" he's actually an immigrant from Afghanistan or something. Not Mr. Pitts, he's a regular (black) American who likes Islam and hates America. When he was arrested last year, I blogged that "Man Accused" Of Plotting To Attack Cleveland 4th Of July Is American Black Muslim (Demetrius Pitts AKA Abdur Rafeeq).
I also explained that the most likely person to commit Arab terrorism is, of course, an actual Arab. However, black Americans, with their hatred of whites and attachment to various forms of Islam, are the next most likely.
There's always a suspicion in undercover cases like this that some harmless person has been tricked into committing a Federal crime by an undercover agent.
But black Muslims aren't harmless—see my blog American Black Muslim Shooter In Muhammad Cartoon Attack, which featured regular black American Elton Simpson (pictured) as one of two terrorists who attacked Pamela Geller in Texas, and were stopped by the "militarized" police people keep complaining about, i.e. police with military rifles and heavy-duty bullet-proof vests.
Then there's this guy—born Rondell Henry, claimed to be inspired by ISIS.
