No clue who did that, but it has been proven time and time again that people will do this to themselves to get attention (black person will hang a noose, Jew will paint a swastika, etc.).

btw Michelle Williams was hilarious in Beerfest

I remember that story, it is a good example. Here's a noose example:

http://michellemalkin.com/2007/12/02...pects-nothing/

Here's a vid of one



Swastika hoax

http://michellemalkin.com/2007/11/05...te-crime-hoax/

Yeah that took literally 10 seconds. Hey whatever happened to that black politician guy that was "spit on" and called a racial slur even though 100 cameras and videos didn't pick it up? Oh yeah, it never happened. Breitbart wins again and keeps his $100,000.

Not necessarily. I know someone who is not only black but as long as I've known him -- for a decade -- has been thin-skinned when it comes to possibilities of racism. Even /he/ thinks this whole thing portraying (TM) as an angel and rest as racism is nonsense. I have second black friend who's almost just as skeptical about (TM). While opinions about culpability may be divided largely upon race, they're nowhere near absolute.

Steer clear of assuming people's beliefs can be determine by their race -- it's unseemly at best.

While I understand your post and its intent, I was more so talking about individuals on here, not your friends that are black.
