I didn’t realize they once had Jim Crow in Buffalo, but they must have, because a hate hoaxer of politically privileged pigmentation looks back on it fondly as a time when the ideology of black victimhood actually had some grounding in reality:
A student at the University of Buffalo ignited controversy Wednesday for hanging “White Only” and “Black Only” signs on bathrooms and drinking fountains in Clemens Hall that houses offices and classrooms for the College of Arts and Sciences. The signs, which campus police removed after receiving complaints, were posted as an assignment for an art class. …
Ashley Powell, a graduate student in fine arts, came forward as the individual behind the project at a meeting of the Black Student Union on September 16. Powell, who is black, hung the signs as a project for her “Installation: Urban Spaces” class, which requires the creation of an art installation in a public space.
Powell explained that her purpose was to “get a reaction out of people.”
Yes, that is usually the purpose of hate hoaxes. The reason the hoaxes keep happening is that the tactic of providing liberals with even the phoniest evidence that their point of view has validity provides that reaction in spades:
This was posted on a public bathroom at UB. Not only is this a hate crime, but it is also an act of terrorism. pic.twitter.com/nhE5qMquvV

Congrats, Ashley. Your “artwork” won’t make it to the Louvre, but at least you will be remembered for a little while as one of the lying losers on the Hate Hoax List.
