Conservative radio host Dennis Prager baselessly claimed that when nooses are strung or racial slurs are graffitied on college campuses, “the odds are overwhelming” that the hate crime was really a hoax perpetrated by a Black student at the school.
The claim came as Prager, the co-founder of PragerU, which makes conservative video content, riffed on his radio show about what Twitter will look like once billionaire Elon Musk takes over.
“Twitter will be flooded with hate, and a lot of it will come from people on the left who want to show how hate-filled it is,” Prager said April 26. “It’s like their race hoax industry. If you see a noose on a college dorm of a Black student, the odds are overwhelming that the noose was put there by a Black student. If you see the n-word on a dormitory building, the odds are overwhelming that a Black student actually did that. We’re filled with race hoaxes.”
