Some minorities love being victimized
Some members of put-upon minorities are so used to feeling victimized it becomes a way of life. Such is the case with Aimee Whitchurch, and Christel Conklin, a lesbian couple in Colorado who used their perceived persecution for being lesbians to claim that neighbors painted this sign on their garage doors and put a noose in a tree. They did it to their own garage.
Turns out, the neighbors had asked them to clean up their dog's piles of crap all over the place and they didn't like that, so naturally they accused the neighbors of hate-crimes against them.
It's as if these minorities are so used to believing that everybody hates them that they don't know how to act when the look around and nobody's hating or even noticing them. And isn't that the ultimate stated goal, for any minority, to stop being noticed at all as being any different than anybody else? I guess when you are used to feeling special because everybody treats you as special, it's hard to just be a regular person.
