6% for me isn't small.Reckon this is one of those things where the stats will vary wildly based on the source and their ideological base. For instance, I just did a quick search and this article was one of the first to pop up:
Doing research for a book, Hate Crime Hoax, I was able to easily put together a data set of 409 confirmed hate hoaxes. An overlapping but substantially different list of 348 hoaxes exists at fakehatecrimes.org, and researcher Laird Wilcox put together another list of at least 300 in his still-contemporary book Crying Wolf. To put these numbers in context, a little over 7,000 hate crimes were reported by the FBI in 2017 and perhaps 8-10% of these are widely reported enough to catch the eye of a national researcher.
I note he cited 7000 hate crimes in a single year period but doesn't specify what period the 409 fake ones cover. Even if it were in the same year, it's still only 6%. Pretty small.
Not sure it needs a public trial if everyone thinks he's a grade A moron. Let his stupidity fade away.
People hate liars and bulls**t artists. Youtubers like iDubbbz have made careers out of exposing them. Smollet just happens to be from Hollywood, rather than Youtube.I’m more thinking about the type of people who would prefer to spend their energy highlighting fakes or simply disputing that racial discrimination or any crime motivated by bigotry (or sexism or homophobia) exists.
I didn’t watch your video, don’t know the guy who created it. I suppose it’s a laugh in a Darwin Awards kind of way?
Hate crime stats in the uk are a joke. Incidents are recorded without any need whatsoever for proof.Reckon this is one of those things where the stats will vary wildly based on the source and their ideological base. For instance, I just did a quick search and this article was one of the first to pop up:
oh God - what ideology. That there are chancing liars in Hollywood? That is something you should know in your bones.The ideology needs to be put on trial.
No.oh God - what ideology. That there are chancing liars in Hollywood?
Which makes the rest of your post pointless.That is something you should know in your bones.
The one bulls**tter casts doubt on all the rest. We see what you doing https://www.fbi.gov/news/stories/2017-hate-crime-statistics-released-111318
OK what evidence is there that Smollet had "Friends in the DNC" - if so can you name themCharges dropped by a Democrat State Attorney, who had originally recused herself for being too close to Smollett. Almost as if Smollett's friends from higher up in the DNC called in some favours. Can't have presidential candidates looking foolish!
There is no white privilege. Just rich privilege.
You are big on the self evident replies - no doubt it some informed critique of identity politics and how 'the Left" has created a circumstances that everyone feels like a victim et cetera et cetera . If only Jussie had learned how to pat cats and stand up straight.No.
Which makes the rest of your post pointless.
