A racial hoax is an instance of racism or "hate crime" fabricated in order to hype a phony threat of "racism," demonize or exact revenge on white people, and ensure that media-favored racial identity groups can secure the high-ground of victimhood and moral superiority.
The charges received widespread national attention because of her age (15), the persons accused (including police officers and a prosecuting attorney), and the shocking state in which Brawley was found after the alleged rape (in a trash bag, with racial slurs written on her body and covered in feces). Brawley's accusations were given widespread media attention in part from the involvement of her advisers, including the Reverend Al Sharpton and attorneys Alton H. Maddox and C. Vernon Mason.
After hearing evidence, a grand jury concluded in October 1988 that Brawley had not been the victim of a forcible sexual assault and that she herself may have created the appearance of an attack. The New York prosecutor whom Brawley had accused as one of her alleged assailants successfully sued Brawley and her three advisers for defamation.
Duke lacrosse case
The Duke lacrosse case was a 2006 criminal case resulting from what proved to be a false accusation of rape made against three members of the men's lacrosse team at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina. The fallout from the case's resolution led to, among other things, the disbarment of lead prosecutor Mike Nifong.
In March 2006 Crystal Gail Mangum, an African American student at North Carolina Central University who worked as a stripper, dancer and escort, falsely accused three white students, members of the Duke Blue Devils men's lacrosse team, of raping her at a party held at the house of two of the team's captains in Durham, North Carolina on March 13, 2006. Many people involved in, or commenting on the case, including prosecutor Mike Nifong, called the alleged assault a hate crime or suggested it might be one.
In response to the allegations Duke University suspended the lacrosse team for two games on March 28, 2006. On April 5, 2006, Duke lacrosse coach Mike Pressler was forced to resign under threat by athletics director Joe Alleva and Duke President Richard Brodhead canceled the remainder of the 2006 season.
On April 11, 2007, North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper dropped all charges and declared the three players innocent. Cooper stated that the charged players – Reade Seligmann, Collin Finnerty, and David Evans – were victims of a "tragic rush to accuse." The initial prosecutor, Durham County's District Attorney Mike Nifong, labeled a "rogue prosecutor" by Cooper, withdrew from the case in January 2007 after the North Carolina State Bar filed ethics charges against him. That June, Nifong was disbarred for "dishonesty, fraud, deceit and misrepresentation", making him the first prosecutor in North Carolina debarred for trial conduct. Nifong served one day in jail for lying about sharing DNA tests (criminal contempt), although the lab director says it's a misunderstanding and Nifong says it's weak memory. Mangum faced no charges for her false accusations as Cooper declined to prosecute her.
Oprah in 2013
Oprah Winfrey spent 2013 stoking the flames of socially engineered racism. First she makes up a fake story about a racist sales associate in a handbag store in Switzerland which turned out to be a lie, and later Oprah played it off like it didn't happen, “I think that incident in Switzerland was just an incident in Switzerland. I’m really sorry that it got blown up.” Then she went around perpetuating the myth that whenever Obama does a horrible job as a president, that not liking your president makes you racist. She also compared the death of Trayvon Martin to that of Emmett Till.
Slur on Receipt Hoax Trend
On September 7, 2013, An negress waitress, Toni Jenkins, at Red Lobster in Franklin, Tennessee had a stingy customer who did not give a tip. So she wrote "nigger" on the receipt in her handwriting (the picture on the side includes evidence of this and others that it was fake). The customer completely denied this and it ended up turning out false. However the waitress received $10,749 in donations.
Two months later, another person tried to fake a slur on a receipt, this time homophobic. Dayna Morales, a server at Gallop Asian Bistro, initially posted the fake receipt on Facebook. Like the racial slur on the receipt, the diners denied making the slur and it turned out to be a hoax. Gallop Asian Bistro manager Bobby Vanderhoof then fired the waitress for making it up.
