Nooses alive and well

Racism alive and well indeed. Recently, since mid 2006, there have been a rash of nooses springing up all over the nation. Not lynchings per se, but the a noose hanging ready in an area frequented by the supposed black targets is a very powerful symbol of hate and oppression.

Frankly, I only read about these nooses recently and it boggles my mind that in the 21st century, this is still a problem. DiversityInc has a good noose wrap-up article and “Noose Watch,” complete with an interactive map of recent reports.
