Apparent Hate Hoax at University of Kansas

When a student activist of politically preferred pigmentation claims to have been the victim of an extravagantly unlikely hate crime, that dead rat scent you detect is not a bouquet of roses. From Lawrence, home of the main campus of the University of Kansas and the most moonbat-friendly corner of the state:

About 1:40 a.m. Nov. 1, officers responded to a report of an “out of control” house party in the 1300 block of Kentucky Street, according to Sgt. Trent McKinley, Lawrence Police Department spokesman. …

Word of the incident spread when Kynnedi Grant, president of Kansas University’s Black Student Union, shared her account of events on social media earlier this week and again in person before a crowd of 1,000 at KU’s town hall forum on race Wednesday.

On her Facebook page and at the forum, Grant said she and some black friends went to the party and, while searching for a friend’s lost wallet, were confronted by a group of white men and the situation escalated. They were called names and racial slurs, she said, and she was spit on and put in a “chokehold.” She said one white man pulled a gun on two of her friends. She said they spoke to police officers outside.

“No report was made, no comfort given to us,” she wrote Tuesday in a Facebook post that has been shared by more than 500 other people. “We are black. Our attackers and police are white.”

The incident is recorded on the Nov. 1 police call log, and five police units responded to the scene, according to the log.

The majority of the details, however, were added to the report on Wednesday — a week and a half later — after the victim and others agreed to come in and meet with officers for formal interviews, McKinley said.

It is unclear why there was a week-and-a-half delay between the incident and the time the victim and others met with police for interviews.

Grant did not respond to multiple requests, via email and in person, for an interview over the course of this week.

Why does she dodge the press despite it being such a useful tool for inflicting social justice? Maybe she has figured out that her tale will not withstand scrutiny, even after the original story was improved with revisions:


Kynnedi took Shegufta’s helpful advice, securing her a position on the rapidly expanding Hate Hoax List and thereby enhancing her promising career as a social justice warrior.
