Nooses Are More Than Just Pranks

Hanging

A few years back, on a late Saturday night, a couple of teenage boys were bored with not much to do. They decided to go down to the highway a couple of blocks from their neighborhood. Standing on an overpass, they got the bright idea to drop a chunk of concrete off the bridge onto a car traveling underneath. They timed the drop perfectly. The chunk of concrete went through the windshield and instantly killed the driver. The driver was a woman. She was a Russian who migrated to the city. She had a daughter. The car crashed and the two boys ran. The police had absolutely nothing to go on. But the two boys couldn’t keep quiet about what they had done. Someone dropped a dime on them and they were arrested a couple of weeks later. They had confessed that it all was just a prank and they didn’t mean to kill anyone.

Late last week, nineteen year old MIT student Star Simpson walked into Boston’s Logan Airport with a plastic board fastened with a nine volt battery and attached to the front of her sweatshirt. Standard overzealous procedure required that someone err on the side of caution and assume that the device could have been a bomb. The proper authorities were notified and Ms. Simpson was confronted at gun point by several of Boston’s finest in airport security. Whether a prank or not, innocent mischief or not, people took the threat seriously and Ms. Simpson nearly paid with her life.

Because someone calls something a prank doesn’t automatically dismisses the consequences of their act. Confessing that poor choices were made because someone wanted to play a practical joke is not acceptable at the airport where a book of matches found in the wrong place can shut the airport down for hours on end. A prank doesn’t dismiss the fact that a couple of idiots killed a woman.

No one would find somebody walking into a bank with a fake gun so they could pull a fast one on their friend who happens to be one of the tellers an innocent prank. But it would be easy for someone not in on the prank to mistake the moron with the toy gun as someone attempting to rob the bank. The toy gun could easily be used to threaten someone. Such stupidity should not be condoned. Such stupidity would be justifiably confronted with the firm hand of the law. Guns in banks are not funny. They should not be tolerated.

If a man was in the local city park and running up to women with a rubber knife and a mask he might be trying to get a laugh or two and post the woman’s reaction on YouTube for his friends to see. But the women who were the victim of the prank, who had their adrenaline dumped into their veins, who were humiliated to have their fear exploited for someone else’s entertainment, would more than likely not see the humor and would seek help from the police to stop the deviant behavior. It would not be funny. It would not be dismissed with a wink of an eye and a smile on the face.

But somehow, what could arguably be the single most evil symbol of African subjugation, a noose hanging from a tree, is dismissed as nothing more than a prank and nothing that warrants any serious attention. Why? White men with nooses have a history of using such weapons of murder on the black community. Such a history is a symbol of white American terror against the black community. Anybody who thinks such terror is funny or innocent needs the same severe response and level of education a person walking into a bank with a toy gun would receive.

Some people look at a noose and dismiss it as little more than a piece of rope. If that’s the case, a gun or a knife is little more than a lump of metal. A bat is nothing more than a piece of wood. But in the wrong person’s hand it can do a lot of damage. In the wrong hands it can kill.

But because the white dominating culture sets the standards for what is and for what is not acceptable behavior in America and because the white community has never been terrorized as a collective with the end of a noose, white people are quick to sympathize with the noose hanger and dismiss the entire affair as little more than a prank. In fact, the white community has always been the one hanging the noose. White people have always been the one standing around a tree, smiling, laughing, and patting each other on the back as a limp African American body hanged from one of the branches. Of course they would prefer not to understand why the black community would react with anger at such blatant racial disdain. To acknowledge the hanging noose as the icon of racial hate is one of the first steps to acknowledging one of the biggest skeletons that continues to hang in white America’s closet.

The black community must not let stand the dismissive attitude of white mindset America towards the ugliness of noose hanging. Nooses are a symbol of white racial hate in and of themselves. They do not need to be confirmed by membership in a racist organization or a racist tattoo painted on white skin. A noose is not cute. A noose is not funny. A noose is a prank done in poor taste. A noose is also a symbol of hate. A noose is also a nonverbal threat. All of America will do well to take the prankster hanging a noose a lot more seriously.

  1. BrotherP,

    I love your blog, man! Anyway, I wanted to say that they don’t understand how those types of things can spark emotions that go deep for us. What type of community would look at such things with such indifference. It wasn’t that long ago that James Byrd was dragged til his body was dismembered… it wasn’t that long ago where blacks where the main attraction(victim) to a good ole hang’n…
    Yet, let someone paint a swastika somewhere or claim that the holocaust didn’t exist… they wouldn’t treat such things with so much apathy.
    White people have to understand that those types of “pranks” can set about chain of events, if not handled properly, that can lead to people being hurt…
    It’s a fact that all people are different and we all (black white or whatever) don’t take those types of “pranks” too well. Then for the one’s who are supposed to be in authority to minimize such things shows the community that they don’t recognize the pain and hurt such things cause.
    We have to keep on keeping on and letting them know how we feel and react accordingly.

    Another Great One… keep’em coming!

  2. well done. i’m glad i found this blog. hey hey new subscriber here!

    one of the reasons that this case has gained traction is because of the number of obvious hypocrisies. and this is a good example, this “nooses as prank” BS.

    lets not forget that a tennis shoe is a deadly weapon as far as reed walters is concerned. how one person can see a shoe as a deadly weapon and a noose as a prank is one of those impossible-to-reconcile facts of this case.

  3. Why are we so shocked when the symptoms that stem from the disease of racial superiority rears it’s ugly which it does on a daily basis all over the world. I’m just elated to see that THIS TIME we came together and said “ENOUGH”!

    What’s gonna happen the next time, we can’t march injustice away. Remember we tried that in the 60’s.

  4. Hanging a noose from a rope is a threat to do harm not a prank. What excuse will they think of next? There are many people who are on the side of the judge, but luckily there are many more on the side of the Jena 6, I believe.

  6. Indeed. Framing a noose as a prank or lighthearted provocation is evidence of the convenience that those with privilege have to ignore the actual context in which their actions occur.

    It’s worrisome to me to see copycat incidents occurring.

    I hope that you don’t mind if I send this link to some friends of mine who joined in the “it was prank” attitudes of our colonizers! This was NOT a damned prank! It was an accost! A threat! and when we just wave our hands and turn a blind [eye] we find ourselves the unhappy casualties of a so-called “prank”!

  9. A noose is a threat of death, no more, no less. It is a reminder from the white community that acts of atrocity can and will be committed against blacks, and they fear little impunity at making such a threat. Witness the fact that there have been no arrest for hate crimes.

  13. I am only a 14 year old student who was researching for a paper. When i came to this website i just had to stop and read. This blog is deep. It has meaning. It is not one of the normal ” media” blogs. I’ve came to the realization that “they” may not consider it a prank but. They just must not care. I feel that these are the things that is holding America back from unity. Because of these things America can not live up to its full aspectations. When i hear quotes like this, i try to repeat this to my self. “the house of peace is build brick by brick”. One day we will stand united.

  14. Hey Kira! Thanks for the positivity. It’s good to see that some of our young people have a better understanding of what’s going on instead of just assuming that if we turn a blind eye it’ll clear it up. It would be nice to think that sometime in the future we could get through this racial animosity. One can only hope.

  15. Baloney. If folks would stop getting up in arms about this stuff, it would all go away. Seriously. It’s BECAUSE the black community gets all riled up over finding a noose that prompts others to use nooses. They don’t REALLY intend to threaten death. They like to see you get all worked up in a lather over it.

    The same with Swastikas for Jews, depictions of Muhammed for Muslims, and the “N” word for blacks. . . ooops. .. err. . .”African Americans”.

    Let it go and it will stop. Guaranteed.

    Comment by GG | Wednesday, October 10, 2007 | Reply

  16. Of course it would go away if we stopped looking at it. That’s probably what James Byrd, Jr. said as he was being dragged through Jasper County, Texas. It’s also interesting we don’t take the same attitude on Islamic terrorism. If we stopped looking at terrorist bombings they’d go away just as easily. Instead of fighting wars in all these different countries we should just let it go. The fact that some white people have a propensity for racial hatred has absolutely nothing to do with the problem. This is the typical “blame the black community for white people’s hangups” type of thinking. Guaranteed.

  17. Not all “white folks” are evil- nor are they all considered “white” even by other “whites”. Case in point: my ITALIAN family was tormented by the KKK for being Catholic and Italian in the 30s and 40s. We were forbiddedn to live in any neighborhoods outside the ITALIAN ghettos. My father was the first in my family to go to college. We weren’t considered “white” by the rest of society until the 1980s.

    All images of racially motivated hatred are disgusting. In fact- anything that puts someone down over race is disgusting. Race is truly trivial- no one should be persecuted for race… did anyone choose their race or were they born with it? If we are born with it- than can we halp it? If we can’t help it- can we really hold it against people?

    I hate being called a white person. I hate it being held against me. I hate being told I have white privalege. Every dime I’ve ever had I’ve worked for. I’m not evil. I’ve heard the stories and seen the pictures from the days when my ITALIAN family was forced to drink from the “colored” fountain. But I am constatly preached to that I don’t get it- that I’d never know what prejudice does to people. My last name was changed from the ITALIAN spelling to look more WHITE. I was the first person in my family to get a commission in the Army- that was a huge success in my family. We served in three wars (WWII, Korea, Viet Nam) as ENLISTED… no college… no white privalege.

    The fastest way to stop prejudice is to obliterate support for it. Everywhere.

  19. To GG and JB!

    Everyone in America has been the victim of some time of racial act. The clown talking about just for get it and it will go away! You try to act and sound so smart! If it will all just go away, why didn’t the little white kids just let it go? Why did the little white kids put a symbol in a place that was frequented by little black kids? A symbol that took the live of many people, black and white, but in the US during the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, that very same symbol was used to kill and threaten thousands of black people. That period in time was not so long ago and there are many black survivors from that terrible period in American history. Those survivors have had kids and their kids had kids, etc… Some never spoke of those terrible days, but many did tell their kids of those events and the fact were very scary. The people who are dominate in the US today are the whites. So when whites kids bring those symbols out of hiding and into the open and don’t just forget about them as you suggest, it will bring up emotions in all generations of black Americans. Before you post a response here again, if you have any kind of a heart, think before you write. If you just want to cause trouble, there are plenty of hate sites on the internet. I am sure that if you are not already familiar with them that it would be very easy for you to find many.

    A lot of people want to dismiss what happens to others, what has happened and is happening to the black community, as unimportant. If instead of hanging nooses, somebody painted a swastika, many people would have a totally different appreciation for the issue.

  21. To say that “white people” dont understand the signifigance of a noose is EXTREMELY stupid, patronising, stereotypical and also racist, Im Irish, so Im sure youll understand that during “The Troubles” many innocent Irish Catholics were hung by Protestant Loyalists ( I myself lost an uncle whom I never met because he was tortured by Loyalists then hung). So to say that “White people” dont understand the threat behind a noose is very infuriating to those who lost someone they loved.

  22. Also SHACURA, thats very stereotypical to say that all white people hate all black people. I dont think that you travelled the world and asked EVERY SINGLE white person their opinion on black people, I have many friends from across the world… My best friend Yusuf Obalanlege is from Nigeria, i also have a pen pal from South Africa with whom I discuss Africas deteriorating political stability, is that what youd call “hatin on black people”? Also i wouldnt like if you hung me.

  23. Thanks for the feedback Adam,

    But to say “To say that ‘white people’ dont understand the signifigance of a noose is EXTREMELY stupid, patronising, stereotypical and also racist…” is not only stupid, patronizing and stereotypical white people arguments, it only reinforces white people’s insistence that the white community are victims of the mess they make. The argument that some white person is the victim of other white people’s enthusiasm for hanging up nooses is some how proof that white people get the fact that nooses are not to be tolerated.

    If white people took nooses seriously we would not tolerate people hanging nooses in an obvious attempt to provoke the black community. The fact that you come here with your accusations of “EXTREMELY stupid, patronising, stereotypical and also racist” is evidence of your willingness to ignore the noose hangings directed at the black community by white people and focus on defending the white community. Because you are aware this means that white people understand. It is you who are the racist.

    For someone who claims to be in communication with people all around the world, you really don’t have a clue of the most effective ways to communicate.

  25. Adam,

    I appreciate your apology and I offer one of my own. My intention is never to insult anyone who comes to my blog. All are welcome! It was never my intention to insinuate that all white people are noose hangers or that no white person could ever understand what it is like to be threatened by nooses. It is an insidious crime that is too often tolerated and we should all work together to make it a true thing of the past. As long as we continue to allow anyone hanging such a symbol of hate and violence we allow racial disparity in all of our communities.

    Please feel welcome to come back often!

    But I honestly don’t know enough of Ernesto Guevara or of the struggles of the IRA or the history of Ireland. I do know that all too often we have been programmed through propaganda to be predisposed to favor the governments position on things. I believe in the words of Malcolm X when he said, by any means necessary. I know that here in America, police terrorize black people. It’s the biggest gang of terrorist of all. And yet, they get away with the murder of black people yet cry like wounded demons when one of theirs goes down.

    Sorry for the delay in getting a response to you. A brother has to sleep sometimes. But one good thing about it, it gave me an opportunity to see your true character. You are no longer welcomed here.

    If the guys really thought that ‘it was just a prank’ then there’s nothing that can be done for them. Their sense of ‘humour’ is very low, their sociability is even lower and their respect for anybody else but them is next to zero.

  47. when you say white community do you mean anyone with white decent i m lost you should be more specific with what race your talking about and you know what white ppl hence jews have been persecuted in europe they’ve been persecuted the most. It isn’t only the black community that has been persecuted it is every community at one time or another. Anybody with a difference in them from the other communities is treated with hostility and the only way ppl are going to stop being hostile is if we accept those differences and build upon them. Yes your right that it is very important for us to take these “pranks” with caution and treat them seriously. But what we really need to do is try and get rid of this hatred between all cultures!!Then take the good of US ALL and make it BETTER.

    Believe it or not, I am a black man with white ancestors. This article was written a long time ago. By white community, I refer to the dominant community that controls the vast majority of wealth here in the United States that claims to be racially generic but somehow is predominantly white and is overwhelmingly influenced by the typical values of white people. Not every person in this group is white. Not every white person is in the group.
