Stop us if you've heard this one before: A campus is thrown into turmoil by an apparently racist incident directed toward nonwhite students, only for it to eventually come out that the individual who perpetrated the incident is himself a nonwhite student—
Oh, okay. You have heard this one before.
A black student at East Carolina University was arrested after police said he posted a fake racist fraternity party invite that read "No blacks."
The arrest comes after another student was initially accused of posting the invite, after which he said he received death threats.
Gee, why do you suppose this keeps happening on college campuses, like all the time?
Why do students keep trying to pull off fake racist hoaxes?
Is it because we've incentivized victimhood and made it a mark of prestigious celebrity status to be a victim of racism? Could that possibly be driving the wave of race hoaxes currently washing through higher education?
Something to consider!
