ANOTHER ONE: Plastic In The Shape Of A Noose Found In DMV Area

It seems that people are becoming more and more creative with how they show their hate. “ ‘Preliminary investigation reveals that this type of material is used to contain loose items during transport.’ ” I find it hard to believe that’s what it was used for. So this is just a coincidence? On the same campus where Richard Collins III was killed  by Sean Christopher Urbanski, who belonged to a Facebook group called “Alt-Reich: Nation” that promotes hate against African Americans and others. It is also the same place where a noose was found in May and several racist posters. That’s one big coincidence.

Below is a list of all the sightings of nooses in the DMV.

Two unidentified people found the tangled, frayed strip of plastic lying partially on a sidewalk near fraternity row, reports The Diamondback, the University of Maryland student newspaper.
