Hate hoaxes are useful for those who would like to inflame dangerous idiots:
The May 2 Strike Committee at Southern Illinois University Carbondale vehemently denied that it was behind a YouTube video – apparently intended to frame a campus fraternity – that repeatedly used the N-word and threatened to lynch black students at the protest.

Here is the faux racist video. Watch fast before it gets removed from YouTube once again:
Here is the eloquent response to this inflammatory hoax by an apparent representative of the Black Lives Matter community (LANGUAGE ALERT):
Students of SIUC are advised not to be anywhere near the fountain in front of Faner Hall at 10 AM CDT, although whether anything actually happens remains to be seen.
