    Minneapolis officials have asked the FBI to investigate after a piece of rope resembling a noose was found in a black firefighter’s locker. The rope was found at a Bloomington fire station on June 15, and was not reported for a week. The rope was tied into what appeared to be a crude noose, according to reports. “Acts like this that embody hate, intimidation, and aggression will not be tolerated,” Bloomington Fire Chief Ulie Seal said in the release. “The firefighter who brought this to our attention has demonstrated extreme strength and bravery and has done the right thing.” Bloomington...

    CHICAGO — Two brothers who admitted helping actor Jussie Smollett stage a racist and homophobic attack in Chicago last year are again willing to help in the case after initially saying they were done cooperating with prosecutors, their attorney said Thursday. In yet another strange twist in a story that has been full of them, attorney Gloria Schmidt Rodriguez said in a statement that Abimbola (Abel) and Olabinjo (Ola) Osundairo changed their minds after a 9mm handgun that was seized during a search of their home last year was located after it went missing.

    A black man who was shot inside Seattle's Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ) last week claims it was a 'hate crime' carried out by a group of white supremacists who dropped the N-word before opening fire on him. DeJuan Young, 33, was shot in the arm on Saturday amid a weekend of gun violence in the police-free zone, also known as the Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP), that left two people wounded and a 19-year-old man dead.

    Bubba Wallace wanted to make a statement, draw attention to himself and cash in on the BLM movement. And he did. Wallace claimed that a "noose" was found in his garage stall. Right from minute one, this had a funny smell to it. All that equipment, all that security and some ninja was able to gain entry to Wallace's stall and leave a noose. Sure. The FBI sent 15 agents to investigate this "crime." Fifteen.They determined that this was, predictably, a hoax. U.S. Attorney Jay Town and FBI Special Agent in Charge Johnnie Sharp Jr. said its investigation determined ‘although...

    NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace has insisted that the rope knot found in his garage was a 'straight-up noose' and said he was 'p****d' with his critics - but accepts he 'wasn't targeted' after the FBI said there was no evidence of a hate crime. Wallace, the only black full-time driver on NASCAR's top circuit, told CNN he was 'mad because people are trying to test my character and integrity' after investigators said the 'noose' was a garage door handle which had been there since last October. Wallace told CNN's Don Lemon that 'from the evidence that we have, that I...

    In all his years in auto racing, NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace said Tuesday night, he has never seen anything like what he described as a “straight-up noose” that was being used as a door pull in the garage he was assigned last week at Talladega Speedway in Alabama. “I’ve been racing all of my life,” Wallace told CNN's Don Lemon. “We've raced out of hundreds of garages that never had garage pulls like that. So people that want to call it a garage pull and put out all the videos and photos of knots being as their evidence, go ahead,...

    The only black (biracial) NASCAR driver, Bubba Wallace, was allegedly the victim of a racially motivated stunt. Depending upon results from the FBI’s investigation, this incident could register as a hate crime. The story is that someone placed a noose into his garage stall at the Talladega Speedway before the Geico 500 race. The noose was found by one of Wallace’s teammates, not Wallace himself. It was given to NASCAR and/or the FBI for further investigation. Who Is Bubba Wallace? Bubba Wallace is outspoken on race and the current protests happening across the nation.

    A rope found in the garage stall of Black driver Bubba Wallace at the NASCAR race Sunday was a garage door pull, not a noose, and had been there since 2019, federal authorities and NASCAR said Tuesday. Northern District of Alabama U.S. Attorney Jay Town on Monday announced his office had launched an investigation along with the FBI and the Department of Justice Civil Rights Division. Town said they were looking to see whether there are violations of federal law. No federal crime was committed, his office said.

    NASCAR is dead to me. DEAD. The Conservative Treehouse has proven what many of us instantly suspected: it was an in-house NASCAR hoax (because obviously – NASCAR infield garages have better security than the White House), specifically the “noose” was the manual garage door pull-down that EVERY bay at Talladega has. Duh. I mean, these cucked* crackers make Juicy Smoolyay look like a tactical genius. *The word “cucked” is not an obscenity. It is the adjective form of “cuckold”, a man who permits other men to fornicate with his wife. The rhyme is coincidental. Several things need to be pointed...

    A noose found in the garage stall assigned to NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace on Sunday at the Talladega Superspeedway had been there since October 2019, meaning the circuit’s only full-time black driver was not the victim of a hate crime, the FBI concluded Tuesday. “Although the noose is now known to have been in garage number 4 in 2019, nobody could have known Mr. Wallace would be assigned to garage number 4 last week,” the FBI said in a statement. The FBI said it would not be pursuing federal charges after the object was deemed to be a garage door...

He was pinned to the ground by three officers, with one officer — Derek Chauvin — placing a knee on his neck. For over five minutes, he tells the officers that he is unable to breathe. George Floyd died as horrified bystanders told the officers they were killing him. The video is unquestionably horrific. But in our rush to condemn an aggressive use of force and pursue justice...
