    I haven't moved the goal post the first time.

    And, I'm not interested in going through all those links you posted.

    The story originates from the Washington Post, a well known fake news site.

    All the other links you posted can be traced back to the original Washington Post story.

    Even the Washington Post story admits the epithets come from an anonymous Internet forum where users are known to push hoaxes, before going on to report the story as Gospel..

    Sorry ....

    I maintain my position.

    In an era where we are drowning in hoax race crimes and events reported by anonymous sources from fake news sites, I refuse to lend any credibility to any of these hoax stories.

    You guys are not taken seriously in these discussion because of it.

    Okay, there is one person present here on my end, so I am not sure who "you guys" refers to.

    This is another racial hoax being reported as "news" by the fake news MSM.

    "The anonymous posters used racial epithets, argued that the students’ project did not deserve to be a finalist and said that the black community was voting for the teens only because of their race."

    How is this a hoax? And why are you hijacking the thread?

    Canca take 1 minute to condemn hideous racists who trolled black teenagers for being too successful?

    Then there's also this:

    From the contest holders themselves:
    Unfortunately, it was brought to NASA’s attention on Monday, April 30, that some members of the public used social media, not to encourage students and support STEM, but to attack a particular student team based on their race and encouraged others to disrupt the contest and manipulate the vote, and the attempt to manipulate the vote occurred shortly after those posts.

    It would cheer me up immensely if our beloved PH conservatives bestirred themselves to condemn acts of hideous racism.

    If there had been a campaign to defeat an all-white team running over on HuffPo, I feel confident I would be seeing exactly that.

    And in case anyone is interested in the project that said teens were working on, it was a continuous cycle water filtration system.
    Here's the presentation for ya:
