According to the expulsion committee, the crudely constructed nooses were not aimed at black students. Instead, they were understood to be a prank by three white students aimed at their fellow white friends, members of the school rodeo team. (The students apparently got the idea from watching episodes of "<SPAN class=yshortcuts id=lw_1193213734_2 style="CURSOR: hand; BORDER-BOTTOM: #0066cc 1px dashed">Lonesome Dove.") The committee further concluded that the three young teens had no knowledge that nooses symbolize the terrible legacy of the lynchings of countless blacks in American history.

They had no Idea.. what kind of High school is this? my 4th grader knows what a noose is and what it is used for(school tought during feburary,Blach History month). what a joke.

Lots and lots of people from all races have died by way of the noose. The only way I would see it as racist is if it were put in front of a black man's house or had some other direct connection to the African American race. Just watch some old Western flicks. Every one you watch will have a hanging or two in them.

I have no idea what news story you guys are talkin bout.......

but as far as westerns and hanging.....

Drunk Guy From Lynch Mob Sitting at Bar: " Say ....you look familiar. Do I know you?"

Clint Eastwood as he pulls his collar down to reveal the scar around his neck:" Mister. You better look a man in the eye when you hang em...."

Hang Em High. Frickin Classic. Look what he could do with a single action 6 shoter. Yo imagine him with a 15 round clip in a Glock?

Some states still have or recently had hanging as an option for capital punishment. I guess they're racsist.
