I think it's not ok of couse. I was walking down my neighborhood, and spotted 2 nooses hanging on a tree in front of my neighbor's house. I was baffled, and angered because I'm mixed caibbean and don't really appreciate racism. Check out the video at Trip Ghetaway . com website

I fail to see how hanging nooses on a tree is racist, and my opponent fails to explain why.

It is a shame that my opponent has forfeited although there may be good reason. Nevertheless extend argument.

Reasons for voting decision: I am human and I do not appreciate racism; but Con fails to give any reason why nooses are inherently racist; or, in fact, to make any coherent argument whatsoever. Conduct to Pro for forfeit.
