There’s a reason I do this series. The vast majority of these stories are hoaxes, and it’s important for people to be exposed to the truth.
A note that used the n-word and threatened a black female student at St. Olaf College — sparking an intense protest that led to classes being shut down for a day as student demonstrators accused the school of institutional racism — “was not a genuine threat,” the school’s president said Wednesday.
President David Anderson said in an email to students that an investigation into the note identified a person of interest “who confessed to writing the note.”
“We’ve confirmed that this was not a genuine threat. We’re confident that there is no ongoing threat from this incident to individuals or the community as a whole,” he said.

BONUS – Fake Hate Watch:
I’m watching this story as a possible hate crime hoax.
Someone spray-painted the words “KKK,” “White rule KKK” and other hateful messages on a construction site for the church as well as on some nearby cars.
“The people that we serve are very generous,” said David Gomez, pastor of New Life Fellowship Church. “They are very committed. They love God.”
New church building, possibly wanting to get parishioners, all of the ‘hate’ graffiti is conveniently on areas that won’t cost the church any money because they will be covered by sheetrock.
I’m not saying what happened in Galveston is a hoax, but it has all the markers of one.
