Duke University Volleyball Hate Hoax

Duke University has again made headlines for a racist incident that did not happen. Rachel Richardson, the only black starter on the volleyball team, shrieks that she was called the forbidden N-word by a Brigham Young University fan every time she served.

From the Washington Examiner:

This story was picked up by professional race-baiters Jemele Hill (the Atlantic) and Mike Freeman (USA Today). ESPN bit on it, giving an interview to Richardson while ESPN personalities condemned the incident. It even bled into establishment media. CNN’s Brianna Keilar gave a segment to Richardson’s father, who smeared the entire BYU crowd as racist due to the “atmosphere” in the arena. It was picked up uncritically by NPR, ABC, NBC, the New York Times, and the Washington Post.

From the get-go, this was another obvious hate hoax. But police still had to treat it like the biggest crime since the Lindbergh baby was kidnapped.

BYU police reviewed footage of the fan who was banned and determined that he did not yell any slurs when Richardson was serving. The fan wasn’t even present when Richardson was serving the first time, and he was on his phone during Richardson’s second serve. Those were the only two times she served in front of the BYU student section. A BYU student newspaper reached out to several people in the student section, none of whom had heard any slurs.

Not a single person has since come forward to report to BYU police that they heard the alleged slur. Black members of BYU’s basketball team were also in the student section, yet they did not react and have not come forward to say they heard anything.

Duke lost, but this is BYU’s fault, for letting there be a racist. Via WRAL Sports Fan:

“The slurs and comments grew into threats which caused us to feel unsafe,” Richardson wrote on Twitter, saying BYU coaches and game officials were made aware of the incident but “failed to take the necessary steps to stop the unacceptable behavior.” …

Understandably distracted, Richardson said she and her fellow Black teammates struggled to get through the remainder of the game.

The designated victim in this farce was described by an investigating officer as having “special needs” and being too immersed in his phone to pay attention to the game. Not that his innocence is any reason to lift the indefinite ban BYU imposed on him.

Nor is it a reason for ESPN professional racist demagogue Stephen A. Smith to apologize for this hysterical diatribe, which was based on an obvious lie:
