Hate Crime Hoax

 

Hate crime hoaxes, like Jussie Smollett's alleged attack, are more common than you think

"A great many hate crime stories turn out to be hoaxes. Simply looking at what happened to the most widely reported hate crime stories over the past 4-5 years illustrates this: not only the Smollett case but also the 
Yasmin SeweidAir Force AcademyEastern MichiganWisconsin-ParksideKean College, Covington Catholic, and “Hopewell Baptist burning” racial scandals all turned out to be fakes."

"Doing research for a book, Hate Crime Hoax, I was able to easily put together a data set of 409 confirmed hate hoaxes. An overlapping but substantially different list of 348 hoaxes exists at fakehatecrimes.org, and researcher Laird Wilcox put together another list of at least 300 in his still-contemporary book Crying Wolf. To put these numbers in context, a little over 7,000 hate crimes were reported by the FBI in 2017 and perhaps 8-10% of these are widely reported enough to catch the eye of a national researcher."
