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
A resident of Hawthorn Hall at the public Ohio university “contacted the Emergency Communication Center (ECC) in regards to speaking with an Officer about her white board being knocked off of her door and a racial slur [the N-word] being written on her door in black marker,” a police report for the November 29 incident stated. The photo evidence is pictured. The alleged victim, who remains unidentified, “stated that the slur was removed from her door prior to Officers responding to the scene.” The female student said it likely happened while she was away on Thanksgiving break. She only learned that her door had been vandalized due to a group chat shared by members of the residence hall floor. A student at Wright State University who said she is the victim of a racist act no longer wants to speak to the police. Campus law enforcement has also closed the investigation due to a lack of suspects and video evidence, according to police reports obtained by The College Fix through a public record request.

She only learned that her door had been vandalized due to a group chat shared by members of the residence hall floor. The police report says another person also allegedly had a whiteboard knocked off and a racial slur written, though it does not specify which one. The report lists a “V1,” presumably for “victim one”, who is black. Curiously, the second alleged victim is listed as white. The police report refers to “the racial slur” written, implying that the N-word was written on both a white girl’s door and a black girl’s door. The alleged first victim identified only one person she has had conflict with but said it is not likely that student would do it. The police closed the investigation on December 11 after the primary victim refused to talk to the police any further. The report is difficult to interpret at times due to the use of redaction.
