Hate crimes at a New York College revealed to be a hoax by transgender student Genesis Hernandez

Described as a “liberal college” by the right wing news media, Vassar College in New York has recently made headlines with alleged hate crimes occurring on campus.

Genesis Hernandez Vassar College hate crime hoaxThe students even received a stern email advising them that Bias Incident Response Team (BIRT) had received at least six reports in the last few months of hateful and insensitive messages being scrawled and spray painted on student residences.

Messages included “Avoid Being Bitches,” “F**k Niggers,” and most prominently, “Hey Tranny. Know Your Place.”

“This is unacceptable and members of our community should be able to learn and work in environments that are free of hurtful expressions and behaviors,” wrote Edward Pittman, BIRT coordinator and dean of the College for Campus Life and Diversity, in an email to students.

Now, just days after the initial email, Vassar President Catharine Hill sent a follow-up email announcing that the bias incidents were hoaxes perpetrated by two students. The students wrote the vile messages and then filed the reports themselves, claiming to be the victims of unknown haters.

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The email noted that the two students had admitted responsibility and withdrawn from the college voluntarily.

Their names were not reported, but reports now confirm 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.
