    No, because hoaxing has become so common.

    So you assume from the get go that it's a hoax? Witnesses saw two white guys do it. So your contention is that it's a hoax because....you have other evidence? You're looking for something to blame Liberals for? You just can't wrap your head around the fact that there are still racists in Mississippi? (clearly not everyone, but there's probably some as there are everywhere)

    Such gross and stupid incidents of racial incitement often turn out to be false flag operations.
    And if you'll check, most instances of political false-flag operations tend to be committed by racists. Remember the girl who etched that backwards 'B' into her face? And how many times have we seen people claim that "some black guy did it" when it turns out they did it themselves?

    Yes, there will be times that blacks use false-flag tactics - I've seen it myself. But it's much more often that racists whites do it, just so they can get away with whatever it is that they wanted to do. This is how a lot of blacks got lynched back in the day: "That white girl was raped and killed, so it must have been that n****r who did it!"

    And FYI, I grew up about 30 miles from Ole Miss, and I've got family there in Oxford right now...and here's a little experience that might help you to understand what things are like there. The MS Delta has the highest percentage of African-Americans in America - Sunflower County (where my family home is (well, was until earlier this month)) is 71% black. And when I visited there for a couple weeks back in the summer of 2012, when the presidential election campaigning was at its height, guess how many Obama stickers and t-shirts I saw there?

    None. Zero, zip, nada.

    I asked a close black friend named Eddie (who knows I am a liberal Obama supporter) why this was, and he looked at me with sad eyes, and said, "You know why."

    And he was right. I did know why. Because if a black guy were to have an Obama sticker or t-shirt, he or his family members would probably find themselves without jobs in this right-to-work state.

    That's the way it is in Mississippi, guy. The whites - many (or perhaps most) of whom are still quite racist (including many in my own family) - still hold the power, both political and economic. And when I say that perhaps most are still racist, a Pew poll back in April of 2011 found that 46% of Republicans in this (heavily Republican) state STILL thought that interracial marriage should still be banned.

    So...no, the noose around the statue was almost certainly not a false-flag operation. That's just the way it is in Mississippi. It's getting better, if only slowly, glacially so...but that state has a long, long way to go.

    The last time an anonymous hate crime was committed on the Ole Miss Campus was in 2002 when the n-word and other epithets were scrawled around the campus. An investigation found that the perps were liberal black students.

    There are scores of cases of liberals staging hate crimes, especially at college campuses. Hate crimes benefits Leftitsts. It creates the illusion of crisis. They demand more power, and it "proves" what a horrible racists place America is.

    This latest crime may have been committed by white racists. Whoever did it for whatever reason should be prosecuted. With 300 million people in America, it is unreasonble to expect that there will never be hateful idiots who do this sort of thing. The only reason to promote this incident as a national news story is to smear America and give more power to the Left.

    Honestly, is there no end to the ability of some to rationalize this type of stupidity?
    Who are the morons that convinced everyone that a hangman's noose is, by itself, racist?

    You assume from the git-go that it's an overtly racist act, spurred on by an entire culture?

    You really need to ask the question in light of where it was found? Never mind, I forgot to consider the source.

It could be a hoax, but it could also be some jerkwad racists. Or, it could all be some stupid, horrible, in extremely poor taste prank or dare. We simply don't know right now.

    Now, I think it is stupid to post a reward for information on this of $25K since all that does is keep the attention there.
    If you didn't say that then the "for those outraged" doesn't apply to you.

    The usual suspects always respond to these incidents as if it is a certainty that they were perpetrated by racist whites. Ofttimes the response is in an especially exaggerated and hysterical manner. The recent incident at Oberlin is illustrative. For days after the college administration found out it was a hoax they went on with campus wide exercises in victim mongering, cancelling classes, holding special meetings, etc. When they found out who the perps were they hushed it up and refused to press charges.
