Via JTL, self-inflicted hate crime: check, sort of. I suppose "hoax" is more apt than "self-inflicted hoax," since these guys did nothing to themselves, so I submit that to correction. At least our culprits spared us the ubiquitous self-delusion that what they did was for the purpose of "raising awareness" of racism, etc. However, Oberlin's admin still insists - in good administrative Newspeak - that being trolled was "an educational moment." And they do not seem to mean that it educated said administrators about trolling and the appropriate and inappropriate responses to it. Because in this sphere, they are apparently ineducable.
