So someone tied a joke knot. What crime was committed? More people are going to do it now that they see how butt hurt everyone is getting.

* Note to self...stay away from aisle 9 (rope/chains) while in HD.
I'm white but don't want to be accused of being a white supremacist because I walked by rope/chains.

Im not sure I understand this, even if they were enraged and traumatized at seeing this piece of rope, how does that in anyway mean they should be compensated for it?




Besides that, how is MONEY going to make them feel any better about this? IF they truly felt traumatized, maybe they should be asking for home depot to pay for therapy instead of just a lump sum of money?

I could've been a crime ...

Here's a comment from the original facebook post ...

Imagine the outcome of this situation had it been witnessed by some of our Black youth who have not yet mastered the ability to handle this situation in a mature manner. It could have resulted in the injury or murder of our young Kings who are already an endangered species.

I'm just ... completely and totally shocked that this is America in 2019. Everyone is perputually offended over EVERYTHING.

Honestly, the Chinese don't need to take down our power grids to destroy us ... they can leave nooses in prime spots all over the country and they can just sit back and watch the fireworks.

In today's society, MONEY makes all your problems go away.

The last two noose incidents in places near where I live or have lived were a hoax by a black college student and the infamous Jussie hoax.

If I'm being honest, I'm pretty much waiting for Home Depot to look at past tapes, spot the person tying it and then later finding out it was them or a friend of theirs while they try to do a fast cash grab from Go Fund Me or Home Depot.

what delicate flowers, sure to be looking up an ambulance-chasing lawyer as we speak so they can be reimbursed for their pain and suffering.
This is 1 reason they are called "snowflakes". So fragile the sight of ANYTHING can set them off.

I wonder if ALL Jews react the same when they see an oven? I'd bet ALL have ovens in in their homes.

Being Germany cremated Christians as well as Jews ALL should NOT own ovens?

They should be made to pick up trash and sweep the sidewalk of the store parking lot for pretending to have that reaction. Or each take a hard slap to the face to " snap out of it".
