Sounds like a Strange Fruit harvest. WTF is wrong with people?

Aside from the utter ridiculousness of these things, the people who are hanging them are vile cowards. You got something to say? Say it. And identify yourself.

A noose was found hanging from a lamppost at the Church Street Post Office. This is just the latest message of hate striking the city.

I know a few years ago, at Ole Miss, someone found a noose and some racial things written on the whiteboard on their dorm door.

Huge outrage occurred. Expulsion and criminal charges for the evildoers was demanded.

It turns out, that black students had done it. To get attention I believe, don't remember all the details. But they got in zero trouble.

Baba Yaga: So nooses are the hot fall fashion trend this year?

I was actually questioning this yesterday when I saw the news and saw another story (different from this).

What's with all the nooses all of a sudden? Is White Power or Aryan Nation or whoever they are trying to make a statement? Are people just stupid and bored, and think they're being funny? Or is the media giving this kind of thing more attention than usual? Seriously, in the last two weeks, I've heard something like six different stories about the noose hangings - that's more than I usually hear about in a year.

Sounds like RACISM.

2007-10-12 02:14:28 PM  
How long until the interviews with New York City black people saying how unsafe they feel now that this noose has been found? Kinda funny, in a way these people putting the nooses up are trolls.

Oddly enough, when I was in New York about a month ago I saw Al Sharpton on the street, talking on his cell phone, about two blocks from the former site of the World Trade Center.

Now that anyone can tie a noose, expect thousands of fake 'hate crimes'.

White-guilt retards will start doing it to feel relevant. Black folks will do it for the donations and attention. Everyone else will do it to watch the fireworks.

You just gave me the (admittedly bad) idea of dressing up like the ghost of a 9/11 victim and wandering around the streets of lower Manhattan for Halloween.


Who else is up for it?

i know the noose is a symbol of hate and ignorance and the whatnot, but before we get carried away...

YEARS
LYNCHINGS OF BLACKS
1890-1899
1,111
1900-1909
791
1910-1919
569
1920-1929
281
1930-1939
119
1940-1949
31
1950-1959

1960-1969

Bear in mind that these figures represent not only lynchings attributed to the Ku Klux Klan but the total number of reported lynchings. The statistics reveal at least three noteworthy facts. The first is the obvious decrease in lynchings over time. The second is the absence of a correlation between lynchings and Klan membership: there were actually more lynchings of blacks between 1900 and 1909, when the Klan was dormant, than during the 1920s, when the Klan had millions of members-which suggests that the Ku Klux Klan carried out far fewer lynchings than is generally thought.
Third, relative to the size of the black population, lynchings were exceedingly rare. To be sure, one lynching is one too many. But by the turn of the century, lynchings were hardly the everyday occurrence that they are often remembered as. Compare the 281 victims of lynchings in the 1920s to the number of black infants who died as a result of malnutrition, pneumonia, diarrhea, and the like. As of 1920, about 13 out of every 100 black children died in infancy, or roughly
20,000 children each year-compared to 28 people who were lynched in a year. As late as 1940, about 10,000 black infants died each year.

sorry that the past 40 years' worth of statistics is missing, but you get the gyst.

wake me when the revolution starts. i'll be over here trying not to let the attention whores distract me while abusing my liver in the meantime.
 
2007-10-12 02:30:54 PM  
Uh, why does this have to be an example of hate? A noose is a noose. People are perhaps reading too much into this, in order to stir things up. Could have been a cowboy from Texas or Oklahoma who left it. The article even states the authorities don't know who the target was. OK, most likely this was done by juvenile pranksters.

================================================

No, it wasn't a noose for black people. It was for the newly crowned leader of evil in Iran. I think it's the same one they used on Saddam to keep him quiet.
