Who in this hypersensitive day and age thought it was a good idea to pose with a noose and then e-mail the photo out? Especially teachers.

The fact that nothing was explained, no context to the photo, tells you everything. These teachers knew what they were doing, narcissism knows no bounds when it comes to age.

A photo of four elementary school educators in Southern California smiling as they pose with a rope fashioned into a noose has led to their and the school principal's suspension and sparked outrage among some parents.

The image of the educators at Summerwind Elementary School in Palmdale, 70 miles north of downtown Los Angeles, was originally emailed by the school's principal, Linda Brandts, and was shared hundreds of times on email and social media, NBC Los Angeles reported.

Four white women posing with a racist symbol? More likely they're Trump supporters.

As a Asian midget trans female cattle rustler, I am offended that blacks are not more sensitive to my right to be offended by nooses!

Most likely they are not Republican, Trump supporter or not. Just FYI:
The majority of teachers are Democrats
The majority of Californians are Democrats
The majority of Los Angles County are Democrats
The majority of the residents of Palmdale are Democrats.
The use of a noose likely was associated with Old West lore than slavery.

‘Cause it’s all about feelings. Nothing else matters. (Except maybe black lives)

Context matters except to the knee jerk race card players.

Context factored in, it was a stupid move to do something like this. Honestly, this is where I could side with those that could perceive the photo as being an invitation to violence/threats. Note that "I could side" doesn't mean I will side.
