UAlbany Professor: Hate Crime Hoax Okay Because It Creates Dialogue

How about we start the dialogue off with falsifying police reports is a crime – don’t do it.

A recent hate crime hoax involving three young black women claiming they were assaulted by 10-20 white men on a CDTA bus while being barraged with racial slurs, quickly fell through when actual evidence became available.

Over a dozen cameras providing video evidence, a 911 call in which one of the alleged ‘victims’ jokes about “beating up a boy,” and a case strong enough to lead an African-American DA to charge the women for fabricating a hate crime, derailed the story that was promoted by Black Lives Matter and the Democrat front runner for president.

A UAlbany professor says, no worries, as long as they started up a conversation on racism, making up a hate crime is all good.

Via the New York Times:

Sami Schalk, an assistant professor in the university’s English department, who has devoted class time since the bus episode to talking through the implications with her students, said she was concerned that the women’s detractors had failed to consider the prejudice and “racialized language” the young women may have encountered on campus or before the bus ride that could have played a role in provoking the fight.

Whatever the outcome of the criminal cases, Professor Schalk said, the events had already served a useful purpose: making white students aware of the subtle slights that students of color regularly encounter.

“My white students have said this has opened up conversations,” she said. “Things that are inadvertent, small, but that these white students have no experience with, not being a person of color on this campus.”

Not only did she justify making up a hate crime for a perceived greater cause, she offered the three black women who assaulted multiple white victims a defense for their actions – “racialized language.”

Chris White at Law Newz writes, “The lesson here appears to be that it’s perfectly acceptable to accuse innocent people of committing a hate crime, so long as the goal is to start a larger dialogue about campus racism.”

The law disagrees. The three women now face assault and falsifying a police report charges.
