Third noose found outside of MLK memorial in Washington, DC: report

Published

on

According to a report by The Root, a noose has been found on federal property in Washington, DC for the third time in a week. This most recent noose was discovered near the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial on the national mall.

Like the one before it (found in the African American History Museum), this noose was also suspiciously left in an an area celebrating the societal contributions of African Americans. This placing causes many believe the nooses are left to “intimidate minorities” due to the noose’s historical use in racist lynchings.

Along with the nooses found in the segregation at the African American Smithsonian and one found outside the Hirschorn Museum, an incident involving bananas hanging from nooses on the campus of American University in Washington happened earlier in May soon after a black woman was elected head of student government.

Other nooses have been found throughout the country, including in North Carolina and Florida.

According to the man -- identified as Daniel and who was wearing a COVID-19 mask and a New York Yankees hat -- his brother was also murdered by police and the cops walked free.

In a video posted to Twitter, a young Denver man protesting the killing of George Floyd at the hands of four former Minnesota police officers, found himself on the receiving end of an attack by police himself as he filmed them riding on the side of a truck -- only to have his phone hit by a fired police projectile while still in his hand.

According to Rachelle D'nae, a staff writer at Slate, her brother went to the Denver protest and was filming the officers when the incident occurred.

"My older brother went to a protest in Denver last night. as the police were leaving, one of them shot him with a pepper pellet that smashed the back of his phone and exploded in his face. they were ~30 feet from each other and it looks like the officer aimed directly at his face," she wrote before adding in a second tweet, "when my brother told me he was going I prepared for the worst.
