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 campus officer brought KKK flyers to San Bernadino Valley College to make others aware that such material was being circulated. Arthur Johnson, a black security officer, took one of the flyers, put it in his own mailbox, and claimed to be a victim of racism from his colleagues. Then he confessed. However, he said "You know I'm no fool or anything. You know I had a reason". The chancellor of the college said the college board of trustees had been totally demoralized by being accused of racism.
