WHAT, PRAY TELL, WOULD CAUSE SOMEONE TO SPRAY ONE'S OWN CAR WITH RACIST GRAFFITI? Class Maledictorian has the goods (scroll down). (See Claremont College's press release here). This isn't the first time hate crime hoaxes have been perpetrated on college campuses: other examples here, here, and here. Don't these folks realize that every time they cry wolf they reduce the likelihood that people will take real hate crimes seriously?

UPDATE: Powerline labels this incident to a "Reichstag Gambit." I don't think I would go that far but the post includes a number of interesting links and commentaries on the incident.
