Another ‘Hate Crime’ Turns Out to be Fake

Fake hate crimes have basically become a daily occurrence in this country. We could spend every day here just reporting the hate crime hoaxes that ignorant, hate-filled people are using to try to get attention and divide the country.

Let’s take a look at several of the latest examples to get an idea of just how ridiculous this has all become. This story comes out of East Carolina University located in Greenville, North Carolina.

It’s a nice place, by all accounts, but recently something just awful apparently happened there. A student named James Edwards said he’d been the victim of anti-black racism while trying to pledge a frat.

What Did Edwards Say Happened?

According to Edwards, he was trying to get into the Theta Chi frat house at a rush event for newbies. According to him, there was a note on the invite to the rush event saying “no blacks.”

Edwards made the accusation on Yik Yak, an app for posting messages, and it created quite a stir. People were upset that a frat was discriminating. It turned out they weren’t discriminating; Edwards was just lying.

He was arrested for cyberstalking several days ago. This is all kind of silly because Edwards actually heads up the competing Pi Lambda Phi frat house, so it was probably just a prank to give their rivals a bad name.

However, it shows how easy it is to spread racist rumors and get people riled up online. It also shows if that’s what you want to do, more and more people are deciding that the race card can be a big winner if needed.

More Fake Hate Crimes

Several more examples of fake hate crimes are also worth reporting here. These are more “serious” incidents that also turned out to recently be fake.

One involves a black woman called Terresha Lucas from Georgia who was arrested two days ago for pretending to be a KKK member and leaving threatening notes in black neighbors’ mailboxes.

She frequently referred to them by the N-word and said they should be hanged, causing neighbors in the Atlanta suburb to get pretty freaked out. Of course, as it turned out, it was all Lucas doing it and she’s now behind bars.

More Hate Crime Hoaxes

As if you needed more examples, a week ago a black janitor at Emory University got canned for scrawling swastikas and writing the N-word all over the autism support area at the university.

In Missouri, recently, a high school had all the students protesting racism for hateful graffiti in the bathroom that turned out to be done by a black student. The list just goes on and on.

This is the environment the liberal media created. It’s disgusting and we need to stop giving so much attention to every hurt feeling that exists so the attraction of doing fake hate crimes fades away.
