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
The Southern Poverty Law Center describes as a hate group one whose words inspire violence. It labeled a Christian conservative group as such. This inspired a man to attack the group with a gun, so the SPLC is a hate group by its own criteria. Fortunately, no-one was killed.
