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 recent book Hate Crime Hoax also adds to Wilcox's work. Watching the Watchdogs is very useful, and so is Fake Hate Map.
