Just got off some calls, so here is my honest, non chickenshit/fraudulent response:

I think any reasonable group of adults could have handled and diffused this situation easily.  Just go check to see what the rope was for, pull on it to see if it is a noose or loop, find out who tied it that way and why.  They probably would have found some garage mechanic who said I tie loops that way sometimes and tied it a long time ago, and he could apologize for any offense and even apologize directly to Bubba if needed.  Whatever happened, the situation could have been resolved easily and answers could be given to any concerned party.  It is insanity to send in 15 federal agents for what could be resolved just by asking a few very obvious questions.  You may think this was the right course of action, but I disagree and do not think we need this amount of hand holding to act civilly and resolve issues.  

Regarding the impact, I think sensationalized stories like this only serve to further alienate and make various groups feel unwelcome in this country.  I think we all have the same end goals and would like for all groups, races, ethnicities, etc, to feel welcome here.  Obviously, we need to work on eradicating tribalism and racism, but we also need to not constantly broadcast fictitious racist incidents.  This works against our mutual end goals.  In the last few weeks, there have been a number of false stories about public hangings, nooses in parks, noose hanging in nascar garage, etc.  As soon as one story gets proven false, another replaces it.  None of these stories should have been given national attention, as they were all easily dismissed and they further send the message to minority groups that they are not welcome here.  I do not want that for our country.     

i too wish we lived in a society where a rope tied a particular way, found in one garage and one garage only, could be simply dismissed as the work of a crew member looking for a better way to grip said rope.  i also wish i came diamonds and was sitting on a beach earning 20%. 

unfortunately, out in the real world we have people paying good money to pull a confederate battle flag above the track, protestors outside angry that they can't fly the confederate battle flag, and some asshole in north carolina selling 'bubba rope':

Quote

STOKES COUNTY — The owner of 311 Speedway here advertised “Bubba Rope” for sale on a Facebook page in the wake of controversy surrounding NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace's announcement that a noose had been found in his garage at Talladega Superspeedway.

In the ad, Mike Fulp, 55, of Lawsonville, who owns the half-mile dirt race track near the Rockingham County line, listed “Bubba Rope’’ for sale with a pitch: “Buy your Bubba Rope today for only $9.99 each, they come with a lifetime warranty and work great.’’

https://www.journalnow.com/news/local/speedway-owner-posts-facebook-ad-for-bubba-rope-in-wake-of-wallace-noose-incident/article_bae21069-37fa-5042-9017-fad413c01300.html

so, again, ask yourself why you need the story to not just be that the noose wasn't intentionally placed for the purpose of intimidation, but rather that cutting it down and taking it to nascar was completely baseless and irrational in the first place?

Link to evidence that every other garage with a rope (from video it appears they all have one) not having a loop tied to the bottom?  Has that been printed somewhere?

and best you avoid the world of fishing and rock climbing to be safe.

pushing back on the people who felt smug after learning it rather than relieved.  you know who you are. 

Or continuing on for those that were disappointed because it didn’t allow them to perpetuate their stereotypes...which of course they will tell you how much they hate stereotypes and “both sides”. You know who you are.

If someone thinks less of a real hate crime or responds differently because of the existence of fake ones, that’s their problem and they probably didn’t give a fuck about the real issues anyway.

Noose knot seems like a time consuming thing, relative to other knots. If you just want a loop handle, why not just an overhand or figure 8 on a bight?

or even just a barrel knot on the end to grip?

Oregon politician wrote racist letter to himself, police say

UMATILLA COUNTY, Ore. -- A man who claimed he received a hate-filled, racist letter from an anonymous person allegedly wrote the letter himself, Hermiston Police say.

Chief Jason Edmiston tells KEPR-TV News that the criminal investigation for second-degree intimidation due to the racist, hate-filled letter received by Jonathan Lopez on June 23 has been closed. The matter will be referred this week to the Umatilla County District Attorney’s Office for initiating a false report - a Class A misdemeanor in Oregon.

Hasn't this happened a few times already in the last few months? 

Has anyone thought to turn police onto journaling or scrap-booking to capture their internal racist shit?

So Aggie

 

Texas A&M police say student who reported racist notes placed them there himself

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KBTX) - In a report released to KBTX on Thursday, police at Texas A&M University said a student who reported finding racist notes on his car’s windshield last month may have placed the papers there himself. However, the 21-year-old at the center of the case strongly denies those claims.

Fucking Aggies.  Don't they know the old parking ticket trick from the big city?  You yourself place an old racist note face down on your windshield, that way when somebody else comes along with a racist note for you...they think you already got one and they just move along to the next minority-owned vehicle.

Can you intimidate yourself? 

Would masturbation become rape if you didn't like it?

Yes and yes! 

He's right you know.

I rape myself, I want me to love me
When I feel down, I want me above me
I search myself, I want to find me
I forget myself, I want to remind me

I don't want anybody else
When I think about me, I rape myself
Ooh, I don't want anybody else
Oh no, oh no, oh no

Don't think Juicy had this in mind when he was committing a hate crime against himself.  Aggy gone global.

I have a different take: The kid desperately wanted an excuse to leave A&M, because deep down he is NOT Aggy, and he knows it, but he couldn't face the cognitive dissonance.

So his personality split. The honest part wrote the "You don't belong here" note, and then he threw in the rest so people would agree, yeah, get out of there.
