When “whites only” signs were posted over the water fountains at the University of Buffalo, many wound up their calls of “raaaaaacism” and claimed that evil whites were trying to institute Jim Crow all over again. But now we find out that a black student is the one who hung the sign and the whole controversy is a fraud.

Once again we see another incident being wound up as a “hate crime” and it turns out to be a hoax[1].

Cries of racism broke out across the campus of the University of Buffalo this week when students found Jim Crow-esque signs in a building on campus.

Someone had posted “White Only” and “Black Only” signs near several bathrooms and water fountains in Clemens Hall.

“It brought up feelings of the past of a past that our generation has never seen which I think is why it was so shocking for us to see,” Micah Oliver, president for the Black Student Union, tells ABC 27.

Buffalo white onlyMore than 100 students turned out to a Black Student Union meeting to discuss the signs.

“There was fear expressed, anger, disappointment – all of that,” according to Oliver.

And then, Ashley Powell, a black graduate student, stood up in the meeting to admit she had hung the signs, claiming it was part of an “art project,” The Buffalo News reports.

Students were reportedly “outraged” and “walked out” of the meeting. Other students denounced Powell’s project as “racist” and “an act of terrorism.”

Yep, another faked hate crime.
