Djdoubt03, I have to disagree with you on the Freedom Of Speech defense for hanging nooses. It's a very touchy subject all over our country, but come
on dude in the South!!! I've lived here all of my life and can't imagine walking up to any place-public or private and saw one. Not saying that
would justify what these young men did, but I would be offended. And knowing that tension is already in the air, whether it started as racial or not,
that is a big deal breaker, and a flat out slap in the face saying "YES THIS IS RACIAL!!!"
Bad jokes happen everyday, but that is not a joke, around here especially.
I'm not a sensitive person, if I get stopped by the police and thrown in jail for something I did, but feel as though it was handled improperly by
the authorities, I'm not calling up the NAACP, or any one affiliated. It's a terrible situation, that happens everyday, in all states.
I know I'll never see the day we can all be human--not black,white,brown....whatever! I don't think any of us on this site will, not even our
children. But if that day ever comes, these days will be blotted out of history. It's a terrible thought...the future will be ashamed of it's past.
