Vassar College (USA)

Genesis Hernandez Vassar College hate crime hoaxThe conservative blog The Daily Caller is reporting that  at least six reports in the last few months of hateful and insensitive messages being scrawled and spray painted on student residences were faked by members of the school’s Bias Incident Response Team (BIRT). Vassar President Catharine Hill allegedly emailed students announcing that the bias incidents were hoaxes.

“It is our unfortunate duty to report that two Vassar students have admitted responsibility for creating a number of recent bias and hate-speech messages in public spaces on campus,” wrote Hill in an email. “They also falsely reported these as anonymous messages. Sadly, our community has been deeply hurt by these actions.”

The email noted that the two students had admitted responsibility and withdrawn from the college voluntarily.

The Daily Caller reports that one student was one of the alleged victims: “Genesis Hernandez, who is transgendered and was also a vice president of the Vassar Student Association (VSA), the student government.”
