Racial Panic Erupts in Oakland Over “Nooses” That Were Actually… Exercise Equipment

By all indications, they are simply swings.

A panic that occurred in Oakland, California over a set of so-called “nooses” that appeared on trees at a local park appears to have been little more than an erroneous hysteria, after a black man has stepped forward and explained that he and his friends installed the ropes as a swinging system for exercise.

Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf had ordered a hate crime investigation after Oakland Police identified five ropes they described as “nooses” hanging from trees at Lake Merrit, with the city government apparently believing that the ropes were akin to racial intimidation tactics and allusions to lynchings carried out by groups such as the Ku Klux Klan.

However, one man familiar with the presence of the ropes is describing the city’s suspicion of a hate crime to be false, stating that they were installed by some of his friends merely for use as swings and exercise equipment. Victor Sengbe, who is black, expressed surprise that the ropes would be viewed as hateful images, stating that he couldn’t see how anyone would view the small ropes as a hangman’s noose.

Out of the dozen and hundreds and thousands of people that walked by, no one has thought that it looked anywhere close to a noose. Folks have used it for exercise. It was really a fun addition to the park that we tried to create.

The small ropes are not immediately reminiscent of a noose that would be used in a hanging, let alone of the lynchings that occurred in 20th century America. See what one area man is claiming were the ropes in question.

Despite Sengbe clearly explaining the presence of the small ropes on the trees, Mayor Schaaf is continuing to claim the findings are indicative of a hate crime.

The FBI is reportedly investigating the presence of the minuscule ropes on the trees. The “nooses,” which had been seen by hundreds or thousands of people without incident according to Sengbe, have been removed, preventing the small ropes from further “terrorizing the public.”

Minnesota Governor Asking President Trump to Declare Riots a Federal Disaster In Hope of Receiving Bailout Funds

Weren’t they peaceful protestors?

Published

Minnesota Governor Tim Walz is requesting that President Donald Trump declare the recent rounds of race riots in Minneapolis a federal emergency, so that the state may access federal bailout funds intended for communities affected by disasters.

Governor Walz and Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey largely stood by idly as race rioters destroyed and damaged more than 700 buildings in the riots, which occurred after the controversial death of George Floyd during a questionable arrest at the hands of the Minneapolis police department. The property damage from the widespread riots is estimated to range in the tens of millions, and Frey is already pushing a federal bailout to repair the damages enabled by his unwillingness to prevent criminality and support of the rioters’ “message.”

Governor Walz referenced the victims of the riots in a statement requesting the bailout, callously ignoring that the victims of the riots were not only victimized by criminal riots, but simply ignored in their hour of need by state and local officials unwilling to confront left-wing criminality in the name of “justice.”

We’re asking our federal partners to step up and help our communities recover, demanded Governor Walz. We need to come together to ensure Minnesotans who were victims of this destruction have access to critical infrastructure they need so they can go to the grocery store, pick up their medication, and live their lives. Together, we will rebuild.

The Governor’s estimate of property damage from the riots is considerably greater than what the mayor estimated, claiming that combined damages from the destruction could cost as much as $500 million.

In the new world of unabated criminality and violent destruction from vicious gangs in Democrat-controlled cities, Democrat officials will always be prepared to come cup in hand to American taxpayers with hopes of funding the repairs of the rioting that they enabled, allowed, and perhaps even tacitly supported. No responsibility or integrity.
