Construction at the Obama Presidential Center in Chicago has been temporarily halted after a noose was discovered at the worksite Thursday morning.
Lakeside Alliance, the construction company building the $830 million center, said it immediately notified police after the noose was reported on the premises, located in Jackson Park.
The company told The Post in a statement that it suspended “all operations onsite” in order to provide its employees with an additional series of anti bias training, citing a “zero tolerance” policy “for any form of bias or hate on our worksite.”
The company additionally said it was offering a $100,000 reward to find the culprit.
Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker also condemned the act.
“Hate has no place in Illinois,” he said in a social media post. “The noose is more than a symbol of racism, it is a heart-stopping reminder of the violence and terror inflicted on Black Americans for centuries.”

Prolly just an everyday ol garage pull.

Hey George, watch me get us an easy day and 4 hours of overtime with this piece of rope.

Maybe just a tingle down the leg.
Jussie strikes again!
Some construction worker wanted a few days off.
Think the perp will get a no bail deal like the violent criminals do?
80% chance it’s another Jussie or Bubba.
Are all the thugs in Chicago crying? What a Joke.
That $840 million would have paid to fix about 20,000 African-American houses.
Call extra FBI teams in. Call Bubba “I’m only half black” Wallace to the scene to cry on camera
Where were Smollet and Wallace? Did they leave a sign with the words...This is MAGA country!!
“Hate has no place in Illinois,” ...
Except on the south-side of Chicago.
P.S. I guarantee it’s a “Jussie Smollet” type of noose.
Unbelievable what extent people go to in crying about something these days. Shut down the entire project over this? At best this is another misinterpreted rope. And at the worst someone wanted to express hate. Maybe the entire world should have shut down every-time someone said or did something hateful to me.
Deer season is open and I’m outta vacation? Hey Larry. We hang up this rope noose and viola. I’ll be by at 4am. We’ll go up to brickyard hill and get us some venison. Damn I love deer tenderloins.
With socialists they want ti be generous with other people’s swag.
Didn’t they recently find a “noose” at a construction site and it just turned out to be part of a crane? Someone posted it here on FR.
