    This happened where I live. I'm curious to read what you guys think his motive would be to fake a hate crime.

    Problem is, this attention whore and his false reporting gets real cases of anti-gay violence to not be taken seriously.

    Seeing attention and clearly thinking it was funny. Guess what! It wasn't.

    It's Blame the Black Guy Syndrome all over again. But this time the supposed victim is one of "us."
    Dunno how much of an increase in hate crimes against BLGT's has been documented in Hawkeye Country, but in Massachusetts the number of reported incidents doubled during the first year after equal marriage rights became law. Nut jobs who already have a problem with you are spurred to act on their problem that much faster when you're in the news a lot. So the time was ripe for somebody looking to fake victimization to use Gay-bashing as the supposed crime of choice. It's plausible when the actual crime is occurring more often.
    In a weird way I guess this means we're "arriving" in this country. The stigma against homosexuality has worn thin enough that somebody's not ashamed to file a false report of being attacked for being Gay. No more having to play the race card. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Iowa City had black guys even back in the 80's, and no, not just Hawkeye basketball and football players. Though I have stories about a couple of them...icon_cool.gif

    It's the University of Iowa, boyo. I'm guessing your winking emoticon implies that what what saying is a joke, but, in all honesty, Iowa City is a diverse little oasis.

    Yeah but the UNIVERSITY OF IOWA (the topic at hand) is far from diverse. No diss to Black people here, but it's far from an oasis to any minority. It's like 90% white.

    +1

    Yup...couldn't agree more!

    Of course he's put himself in the worst position of all: if he really were attacked by a homophobe...not only is he on record for a false report previously...but would any of us believe him either? It'd probably be a hard sell!

    You have a good point regarding the difference between the populations of the University of Iowa and Iowa City. I have to agree. I guess "oasis" should be read as a concentration of diversity in relation to the state of Iowa. Now I'm not claiming that Iowa City is the most diverse city in Iowa--I would imagine Des Moines holds that position-- nor am I claiming that Iowa City's level of diversity is comparable to its neighboring states and metropolitan areas, but Iowa City is small and thus the city's diversity (which I acknowledge is entirely different from the total city population) becomes easily visible regardless if diversity levels are comparably low. In a supplemental fashion and in conjunction with what I believe you have pointed out, such diversity becomes less visible and does not exist when you enter the institution.

    I admit, I conflated the university and the city as one.
