This is a contemporary original report of the Tawana Brawley hoax in Jet Magazine
, [January 11, 1988]online at Google Books. As most of you know, almost nothing
in this story is true, including the spelling of the alleged victim's name. (Ms. Brawley converted to Islam and calls herself Maryam Muhammad
now.) I don't blame Jet Magazine
for that—what's worth noting is that unlike the MSM, Jet Magazine,
aimed at African-Americans,
had no hesitation in saying what race the alleged victim and alleged attackers were.The same is true of the Howard Beach
story below it.
