  • Nooses Showing Up More In Hate Incidents Around Country

    Nooses have appeared recently around the nation's capital — including the Smithsonian's new African-American history museum — in a rash of incidents that experts say shows the growing use of hate symbols in the U.S. to try to intimidate minorities. Two nooses were found at Smithsonian museums in the past week, one outside the Hirshhorn Museum last Friday and one inside the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture on Wednesday. Bananas tied to nooses were discovered at American University in Washington last month, while a noose was found at the nearby University of Maryland and a suburban middle school in Crofton, Maryland. This comes as other episodes of bigotry have shaken the country. The Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks bigotry, said it has seen an increase in hate incidents in the U.S. since the election of President Donald Trump. The SPLC said that between Election Day and Feb. 1 it collected information on about 1,800 hate-related episodes from almost every state. According to the center, in the past, a couple hundred would be considered a high number.
