Congratulations, D.C., your racism game is extraordinary even though you are barely considered part of the South. There have been six nooses found hanging in random places around the city in the period of about a month, two of those near schools. The implications are somber.
Two men have already been arrested on hate crimes charges after a noose was found hanging at Crofton Middle School in Maryland. There have also been nooses found at National Museum of African American History and Culture and the Hirshhorn Museum. The latest noose was found a few doors away from an elementary school.
The victim of these hate crimes is listed as “Society/Public.”
Nooses have always been associated with racism. You had a slave that wouldn’t listen? Lynch him. You didn’t like that colored man down the street in your neighborhood? Lynch him. Those people who want the same rights you have? Lynch them. That was the answer to all racists’ problems back in the day.
