Lately there are so many hate hoaxes that to attract attention hoaxers have to go over the top. Once it was enough for theoretically oppressed persons to scrawl “nigger” on their own door and weep to the authorities that Whitey did it. Now we read stories like this…
Police at Saginaw Valley State University say a threat posted on the social media site Yik Yak read, “I’m going to shoot every black person I can on campus. Starting tomorrow morning.”
The message triggered an investigation and police security response that led to the arrest of a Delta College student living in SVSU housing.
Emmanuel D. Bowden, 21, is charged with making a false report or threat of terrorism, a felony that carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.
It appears that Bowden’s defense against this charge will be the trusty standby, “I was just kidding.”

He was arrested Tuesday morning on an unrelated warrant.
The next day, far from Michigan in Arlington, Texas:
A 17-year-old Bowie High School student was arrested in connection with threatening posts made on social media against her school.
Shalaria Jones was arrested Wednesday night and charged with making terroristic threats on Twitter using a fake account.
Pretending to be a “white” student at Bowie, Jones posted three threatening tweets — one including a picture of a handgun with a threat of a school shooting.
The tweets caused a “chaotic scene” when as many as 300 students left school out of fear for their safety, according to an arrest warrant.
Considering that she sent this tweet…

…few will be surprised to learn that Jones looks like this:
Be sure to congratulate Emmanuel Bowden and Malaria I mean Shalaria Jones for making the Hate Hoax List. It is probably all they will ever have to take pride in.
