Another Damn Noose Found Hanging in D.C.

In the year 2017, when cars can drives themselves and we’re sending spaceships directly into the sun, why we as a nation continue to have a problem with hatred and bigotry is beyond any logic or reasoning.

But here we are, writing about yet another noose found hanging in Washington, D.C., a place where more than fifty years ago Martin Luther King Jr. gave his famous “I have a dream” speech.

This is the latest of many nooses to be found on the National Mall. U.S. Park Police say they found the noose hanging from a light post near the National Gallery of Art.

Several weeks ago tourists found a noose at the National Museum of African American History and Culture, which opened just last September. Another noose was found soon after that at the Hirshhorn Museum in D.C., and another at a construction site. And that’s just D.C. All around the country there have been numerous other symbols of racial violence and intimidation found, many of them at schools.

How police have no suspects or have made no arrests in any of these incidents is anyone’s guess. Are they really trying?

It’s hard to prove what’s causing the increase of racist incidents in America, but in the month following the election there were 1094 incidents of racist attacks in America, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. For the past two years, the number of hate groups on the right has been on the rise.

From where we’re sitting, the biggest thing to change in America during that time, is the country’s political leadership.
