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.

Campus officials said someone posted a note with an anti-Semitic message on a student's locker. The note was found Thursday morning in its School of Architecture and Allied Arts, and University of Oregon's Dean sent out a student-wide memo about it later this week. However, Senior Director of Communications Phil Weiler said the student destroyed the note.
