What the heck is going on that smiling and laughing female teachers and the principal are laughing while holding a noose.  Oh, they were put on administrative leave, but showed up to teach the next day. 

What the heck is going on that they think that's funny and okay?

You're right, that is sick and disturbing. Anyone who sees a killing device in a positive way should see a shrink.

Oh, wait, what about the cross...

conservative = hypocrite

I never take off my cross. It's small and I wear it on a small chain around my neck.  It is not a crucifix with Jesus being crucified.  My cross is empty and represents that Jesus lives.

I also have a gun that I know how to shoot.  More importantly I know how to aim it.  I also drive a car.  Cars have been intentionally used to kill people.  I have two dogs.  Dogs also have been used to kill or at least restrain people.  Need I go on?

I am not aware of any nooses being used to kill people only because  the color of their skin was white.

If you see a noose as purely a killing device for black people, then you have some serious racial prejudice.

To me, it's just a knot. It has massive use outside of hanging someone.

The cross, to us non-Christians, is creepy. You wear a killing device around your neck, and it's supposed to be the most normal thing in the world. It may symbolize Jesus living to you, but to us, it's equivalent to wearing a guillotine.

So freaking out over a noose seems overtly hypocritical to me.

I was a rigger for several years. I know a boatload of knots. And a noose is not used in any practical working way other than killing people.

In 2020, when President Trump is reelected and we retake the House and gain a fillabuster proof majority in the Senate, then you can blame President Trump and the Republicans for this continuing mess in Washington.

So, like, you've never tied your headphones with a noose? And the uni-knot in fishing? Let's face it, it's an easy knot to learn. I've made it hundreds of times in my life just for regular household use, never once thinking of it as a killing device.

It's a knot.

Now, if those ladies in that picture WERE being racial, then by all means, they should be condemned for it. But I'm not going to assume anything until there is more information.

You conservatives remember the whole innocent until proven guilty thing, right? Or does that only work for things that support your ideology.

I don't know what the big deal is. Seriously, I think people actually *LOOK* for reasons to be offended nowadays.

Yeah, I find that offensive.

FC,

I've been thinking about how I can respond conversationally without coming across as a total dick.
