fake hate crimes: a database of hate crime hoaxes in the usa



The purpose of this site is to compile a comprehensive database of the false reports of "hate crimes" committed (mostly) in the USA. It builds on the work of Laird Wilcox, whose Crying Wolf (PDF) is the original book on this subject. The books Hate Crime Hoax and Hate Crimes: Criminal Law & Identity Politics are recommended, as are the websites Watching the Watchdogs and Fake Hate Map.

summary
"I graduated from Oberlin in 1988; there was an incident my senior year, a hate filled banner hung from the student union. An investigation followed and it was found to be not a hoax but a ‘conscienceness’ raising exercise by a group of black students. Don’t know if the current events were hoaxes or meant to start a discussion, but it’s happened before."
