Guess what I did today in post-racial America???

Alright folks, all over the nation they are coming out of the woodwork. They? Who is this “they” you speak of Tiff? “They” is in reference to the people who have been masking their racist and/or prejudiced feelings toward African Americans. Here’s the situation: African American man arrives at his city job for CWLP, ready to get to work. He walks to his designated work area and guess what’s there? A pile of work? A bouquet of flowers? A welcome back present? Nope, nothing so pleasant. Hanging in the man’s work area was a noose. Yes, a noose…hanging in a black man’s work area. Ha Ha, funny, right? Yeah, I don’t think so either, and neither do the people who showed up at tonight’s rally. A rally was held prior to the city council meeting where this issue would be discussed. Varying ethnicity showed up to voice their outrage at the fact that this even occurred and also at the fact that “disorderly conduct” is being considered as the charge. Yes, disorderly conduct! This was a HATE CRIME and that should be the charge! The brotha who was the target of this hate crime said that the investigation was performed without asking him for his side of the story. apparently they didn’t even ask him if he was having issues with any co-workers! Wouldn’t you ask that question in a thorough investigation? Rumor has it, that one of the two men involved in committing the crime is the nephew of the mayor. Again, this is currently just a rumor. So you know we gotta stay on top of this in order to make sure justice is served and that the both men are terminated from their jobs.

Here’s a link to the story: http://www.sj-r.com/homepage/x1543607867/Police-CWLP-investigating-noose-hung-in-water-plant-workstation

I’ll be sure to comment further on this when I find out more information…
