This here is a little demonstration of what happens when your world view sees racism at every turn – You may end up a little embarrassed by reality.
Black Lives Matter protesters were “saddened and disturbed” when they found “nooses” hanging from a tree hours after a rally was held at the University of Delaware.
The UD Review reports:
Crudely made with rope and bent wire-hangers, they were discovered by sophomore Harry Lewis, who passed by them while walking along The Green. The nooses were hanging from a large tree on the same patch of grass where Black Lives Matter demonstrators gathered Monday night to protest Katie Pavlich, a gun rights advocate who was speaking in Mitchell Hall.
“We are both saddened and disturbed that this deplorable act has taken place on our campus,” Acting President Nancy Targett said in a statement Tuesday night. “This hateful display stands in stark contrast to Monday night’s peaceful protest and discussion. We condemn this despicable action and ask everyone in our community to stand together against intolerance and hate.”
The university declared the display a ‘hate crime’ and then decided to do an investigation. That’s when they discovered the so-called ‘nooses’ were actually lantern hangers, placed there several weeks earlier.
On Monday, there had been a #BlackLivesMatter protest against guest speaker and conservative activist Katie Pavlich. But on Tuesday, the “nooses” were found near the protest site, earning coverage from outlets like MSNBC and online activists like Shaun King.
At first the university was supportive, declaring the “nooses” a hate crime that they planned to investigate. But a day later, they announced that an investigation found that they were just paper lantern hangers left over from a previous event.

But hell, racists aren’t about to let a little reality stand in the way of their agenda.
After hearing the news, one organizer declared that “there’s never really been a lantern that big” before in the history of forever, and the aforementioned Targett proclaimed that protests would still go on.
Acting President Nancy Targett announced the investigation results in an early morning email, but said the university’s gathering, organized for 4:30 p.m. today in reaction to the perceived “hate crime”, would go on as scheduled.
So the Black Lives Matter protesters are actually going to physically protest something that does not exist.
What’s next, unicorns?
