This makes me so sad.

The island that DD and her father's side of the family own is right off the causeway where this happened. DD was out on the island with her dad last night and could see/hear the vigil from the island.

This is awful & disgusting racism!


In the past week, there have been several stories regarding nooses in tree around this country.

Some actual hanging of people are being investigated this past week,


The racism in this country is appalling & still exists.

How can people be so hateful? I donít get it. In our community people have been getting leaflets on their driveways recruiting for some white supremacist groups. These are scary times.

What a vile act of racism.

I would concentrate on the strength and love of the people who attended the vigil against the despicable act.

13th

It has been suggested that I share information about the documentary
"13th". It is available on Netflix but the producer has also posted it on YouTube. It's powerful, disturbing, revealing, and may help you to understand where we are today.

I will never understand how or why some people act and think the way they do. So tragic!

Hanging investigations
Old 06-21-2020, 11:01 AM

Just to see the images of that noose is very disturbing! I was glad to see that the community came together to hold the vigil and stand united against all that the noose represents.

California currently has some ongoing investigations for two separate hanging deaths. So hard to think this is still be happening in 2020!

I second the recommendation for the documentary, "13th". It's not easy to watch, but it has a very powerful message.

Appalling act

That is very distressing. It is sad to see such a manifestation of hate.

In California there were two recent hanging deaths of black men under investigation. One has now been confirmed and acknowledged by the family of the man from Victorville that it was a suicide. There was video evidence from a security camera on a nearby building. The other case is still unresolved.

I read the warning and decided I couldn't read it. This stuff is disturbing to me so I don't want to see what happened. The pandemic was more than than enough. Then the riots. I never dreamed things could be so harsh. I'm sorry for whatever your family must be feeling right now.

Seems more like 1920 than 2020.

NASCAR driver Bubba Williams found one in his garage yesterday. Sadly this is 2020 and not 1920.

Something needs to change, and fast!
