An alleged hate crime that sent Eastern Michigan University’s campus into racial unrest in has now been confirmed as a hoax by local authorities.

As Campus Reform reported in September, students took to the streets to protest, and even blocked traffic at one point, in response to racist images found on campus, including “KKK” in red, white, and blue spray paint and “leave N*****s.”

At the time, students were demanding that the university redouble its efforts to catch the perpetrator, and the school offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to the vandal’s arrest.

“The university strongly condemns such a racist and thoughtless act, which runs counter to the values and welcoming environment of our highly diverse Eastern Michigan University community,” President James Smith remarked in a statement, vowing to address a list of 10 demands submitted by student protesters.

Now, M Live reports that officers have arrested 29-year-old Eddie Carlin, a black man who attended the institution for two years, on three counts of malicious destruction of property.

This is the school whose teams were the "Hurons" but are not the "Eagles" because of political correctness.

Your alma mater... tsk tsk

" They'll never catch meee " is probably the guy's thinking. Except that modern forensics can analyze and 'track' paint from factory-to-retail, by batch-numbers.

The mind-of-a-juvenile would write KKK. At a college... an adult-setting. The police are nobody's fools.

EMU wasn't even our main rival-CMU in Mt. Pleasant is. And to their credit, they remain The Chippewas. I think the Chippewa tribe likes it that way, too. There are two main attractions in Mt. Pleasant: CMU and the Soaring Eagle Casino. Guess who owns the latter?

Since it took so much time to identify him and the publicity and response by EMU was 10X or 100X that of the revelation of his hoax, I'd say he accomplished his purpose.

An incident in which racist slurs were painted on a car near the Kansas State University campus last week was a hoax, and the man who painted the slurs has apologized.

Riley County Police reported Monday afternoon that the owner of the car, Dauntarius Williams, 21, of Manhattan, admitted to investigators he was responsible for the graffiti.

Law enforcement officials, however, decided not to file charges against Williams.

Notice that no where in the above does it happen to mention that Mr Williams is black.
