Another Fake Racism Case

From August 26, 2013 NJ.com:
The black St. Peter’s Prep student who purportedly received racist text messages warning him to drop out of the Jersey City high school's student government election sent the texts to himself, a school official confirmed last week.
Doesn't anyone know the story of the kid who cried wolf anymore?  Sometime in the next few years, there is going to be a real case of some knuckle-dragger trying to intimidate someone because of race -- and no one will believe it.

you can see the student in an interview here:

What strikes me is the aching sincerity of both the reporter and the student. At the end, the student even says "I've forgiven the racist who sent these messages."
