What is far worse though is that a major MSM published this and now it will go viral.
It seems being a snowflake today and seeing racism all around you is newsworthy.
And, of course, everyone wants their 5 minutes of fame on national news.

It has become outrageously absurd, as the threshold for being offended keeps falling rapidly. Pretty soon, the libs will demand that all trees in America be cut down, as blacks were once lynched in trees and now they are "triggered" by any plant taller than ten feet.

No doubt some mischievous patron of Home Depot was bored and did this. So the hell what?!
Its a business model. Get offended, Post on twitter, Sue, Settle.

Haha. I was just thinking the same thing. We have second year scouts who still have trouble tying a taut-line, and the first years don't even know what a half hitch is. Once you show them they're like "Oh, that's it?" but they're pretty clueless at first. Outside of specific things like sailing, climbing, or scouts, very few know knots.

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.
that is some mind-blowing victimhood culture right there. 'young kings' must be an endangered species all right. i've never seen one...

maybe you have to go to the UK to see them?

Do you KNOW this for a FACT? How do you know a customer didn't do it?

I'll bet in all the history of the Hangman's Noose, there have been far more white people who have met their ends on it than black people.

Yep. Like my dad use to tell us when we would cry or whine over something, "I'll give you something to cry about".

Seriously, do some black people believe only black people have been hung or lynched?
Did these idiots think that random rope meant someone was actually going to hang them?

I doubt these folks were truly offended by it, or "couldn't move". sorry, i just don't buy it.
