Alleged Racist Frat Party Was Hoax by Black College Student

As schools were reopening, a story emerged that created national outrage.

A Theta Chi rush party had been announced using the Yik Yak app.

The invite that went out had one caveat… “No blacks.”

As it turns out, the entire thing was a hoax.

Just Kidding

As it turns out, the invite was sent out by a black student at East Carolina University.

James Daniel Edwards, 19, has been arrested on a cyberstalking charge related to the incident.

His arrest came after another student had been accused of making the post…

ECU Theta Chi Chapter member, Austin Hunter, stated, “It’s caused a lot of stress and anxiety.

“To be accused of something that I didn’t do, that really sucks.

“My name and number were posted in the college newspaper, and I was being harassed with calls and texts, and I even received death threats.”

The motivation behind the hoax seems to have been to hurt a rival fraternity, as Edwards belongs to Pi Lambda Phi.

This is a door that was kicked wide open by Democrats over the last four years.

Thankfully, everyone allowed the investigation to play out, but that will not help the damage that has been done to Austin Hunter, the young man initially accused of the racist posting.

My question, however, is what damage has this hoax done to the school? How many kids knocked this school off their list because they believed there was such open and blatant racism at the university?

All this kid is getting is a $1,000 fine and a misdemeanor, but is that really enough, especially when you add in the problems that he caused for Austin Hunter?

We really need to start looking at the penalties for these hoaxes and up the ante. If people want to play this game, they need to be severely punished to deter anyone from doing it again.

The penalties for being involved in a hoax should replicate the penalties for an actual hate crime, in my opinion.
