Hate Crime Hoaxes – reddit

Hate Crime Hoaxes (HCH)

A subreddit dedicated to cataloging incidents where people have lied about being the victim of a hate crime.

Rules are few, but important:

Posts should primarily be direct links to news articles describing the incident.

Articles regarding hate crime hoax statistics are also welcomed, as are stories of HCH from other countries or articles examining the media’s role in promoting hoaxes.

Try to summarize the background of the hoax as best you can in the headline without editorializing. Try to be as clinical as possible this means refraining from vitriol and sarcasm.

Note the date of the article and the city/state where the hoax took place in the headline title. This makes it easier to search for duplicates.

Please do not submit duplicate of the same event without a good reason. Karma is not a good reason. Seeing that the existing article leaves out a ton of important details or comes from a questionable source are good reasons to submit a better one. Duplicate stories are subject to removal.

Local news sources are best. If an interesting topic is discussed in a blog, HuffPo, AmmoLand, etc. look for the link to the original news article. Mods reserve the right to replace posts with a more relevant link. Off-topic and opinion pieces will be considered for deletion.

Commenting is unmoderated, except in instances where the comment violates Reddit’s policies (giving out personal info, for example). Blatantly racist comments will result in an immediate ban. Terms like Jew, Jewess, blackie, whitey, chink, cunt, Pope worshipper etc are examples of descriptions that are unnecessarily inflammatory. Identity politics and attention whoring knows no limit based on race, gender or ideology.
