Kenneth Eng Threatened a 'White Pussy' With Violence

We told you last week how Kenneth "Why I Hate Blacks" Eng was sentenced to counseling for attempting to assault his neighbors with a hammer, only to be picked up moments later on federal charges.

The feds say Eng, a 23-year-old from Queens, made threatening phone calls to an NYU classmate. Eng "did transmit in interstate commerce a communication containing a threat," according to sworn affidavit from an FBI agent who investigates hate crimes.

The criminal complaint contains references to the Voice's reporting on Eng, spit attacks, and bigotry of all varieties.

"Eng is a self-proclaimed racist who hates whites and blacks, and believes that Asians should rise up against them with violence," the complaint states for starters.

It then lays out the incidents at NYU that got Eng into this latest round of trouble:

"In the fall of 2003, Eng's second year at NYU, he was enrolled in an Advanced Production class. On or about September 12, 2003, during this class, Eng stated, in response to a presentation by a female African-American student, that the students should tell the "Negro" that the work was bad. The professor and several students in the class, including John Doe, told Eng that his comments were inappropriate. Shortly thereafter, Eng was expelled from the course. In response to the expulsion, ENG sent an email to the professor, stating in part and substance: 'I was recently pondering whether I should continue to think of jews [sic] as equals, but I think your actions have made up my mind.'"

In the summer of 2004, Eng encountered the John Doe in an editing room and spit in his hair. "Eng then moved closer and spit directly into John Doe's face two times. Eng called John Doe a 'white pussy' and told John Doe, in substance that he recently published an essay advocating militant violence against whites to protect Asian rights," the complaint states.

NYU security escorted the John Doe out of the building. A fews days later, the John Doe was again escorted out by security.

Eight months then passed, and the John Doe received a call from Eng who repeatedly said words to the effect of "Remember me? I'm the guy who spit on you." Eng kept calling the John Doe, intimidating him to the point that he did not show up at the university when the school screened his own movie at an event called "First Run."

Eng's parents posted $500,000 bail. No word yet on when he is due back in court.
