Fake Hate

Two months. That's how long it's been since a black professor reported a noose hung on her office door at Columbia University. The last we heard was that cops were reviewing [ten hours] of videotape to see what it would yield. The result? Nada. Amazing -- ten hours of videotape yet nothing is seen of anyone hanging the noose.

Elsewhere, the Baltimore Sun reports on another noose incident -- a fake noose incident -- at an East Baltimore fire station:

A firefighter who reported finding a knotted rope and a threatening note with a drawing of a noose in an East Baltimore station house last month had placed the items there himself, city officials said yesterday.

The man was suspended last week for performance-related issues and will likely face additional punishment, fire officials said. Sterling Clifford, a spokesman for the Police Department and for Mayor Sheila Dixon, said the man admitted to the hoax and will not face criminal charges.

The rope incident sparked outrage two weeks ago and prompted a federal investigation into possible civil rights violations.

Now we can wait with baited breath for the outcome of U.D.'s own investigation into that "noose" hung around a water bottle!

Funny how the numbnuts over at Delaware Mental Defective haven't said nothing about these incidents.

What incidents?

But seriosuly folks. when I was a kid we'd fashion a noose now and then because they looked cool and kind of "old west." We never strung anyone up.

Anyway, I could see how some African Americans would find them off putting. I could also see that a fake noose incident could get under your skin.

We're just curious, Jase. Y'know, why these incidents don't seem worthy of your time and coverage. After all, you dolts seem to think you know what WE ought to cover, right?

So what's the deal?

(And BTW -- it was Felix who wrote the anti-Clinton post, putz.)
