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.
