      Are there actually any hate crimes that are not hoaxes?

      @kishke: Probably, but so what? In a nation of 300 million the odds are that somewhere someplace someone is doing something nasty bad and disgusting to someone else for a whole lot of bad possible reasons. The problem is when the media zooms down and picks one episode that fits their narrative agenda and makes it seem to occur in your very own living room. Fake hate crimes are just functions of media laziness and incompetence.

      @K: I’m referring to hate crimes that have been trumpeted by the media of late. Have any of them been real? I can’t think of any offhand. A generation of Tawana Brawleys and Al Sharptons.

      Sharpton is Obammy’s ghetto cosultant.
