I'm sure we have all heard the expressions "You spoke too soon" or "you wished that upon yourself". I've recently read the book The Secret and it tells of the "Law Of Attraction". It basically says you will attract what you think of; that's a really brief description, but you can Google it. You can also find the videos on YouTube.

The Law Of Attraction sure seems to be working on racism things of late. I have never associated nooses with a negative towards African Americans; I even grew up in the south just before my teen years.

I do know if the Jenna 6 story didn't go national the stories and attention given to nooses would never happen. But since the nation gave attention to nooses it became the new swastika. Every time one of these symbols show up, and the media reports it, the Law Of Attraction says more will have to happen since we are attracting it whether we know it or not.

Now what if we apply this law for good?

That's ashame. Wow! Hold up a minute. Slavery days should now be over with. People needs to get a damn grip to life and stop all the racism crap! Can't we all learn to get alone. It doesn't make any sense whatsoever. Whoever did this senseless act needs to be punish for this. This is crazy! Why would someone wanna do such a silly immature act like this anyway??? Here this lady is trying to make a living just like everybody else. Grow up people and pay attention to the word of God. It's time to stop acting crazy and get some sense in y'all behinds. That's ridiculous! Pay attention to the world and what's going on in today's time!!!!!! Unbeliavable!!!! Senseless and immature if you ask me!!!!!! Ugly behind folks!!!!!! I bet it was some rookie cop that did this to this innocent lady!!!!! Damn! Stop hating on one another and learn to love and respect one another. I'm sick of this crap!!!!!

I thought nooses could kill humans of any type, not just those with certain skin tones.
I never realized that a noose was device that could only kill black people, and only symbolized the death of black people.
It is a good thing that I read this article, or I never would have known that sending a vague death threat to someone is more of a crime if they are black.

In one of these many noose incidents where it was fond out is that the person who left the noose was a 43 year old Black man.

As a Black man it is dangerous to rush to a drastic judgement. Understand that if you see racism everywhere you can never see when true racism rears it's ugly head.

How could you even perceive to hold today's society responsible for something that happened 100-150 yrs ago ?
Now's that's harboring hate !
You see hate isn't limited to whites now is it ?
Thanks for proving the point !

For those of you, black, brown & white, who have never heard of the saying " Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere", you are in for a rude awaking. I hope none of you ever became a victim of hate. No matter how much you pray it changes you in ways you can't even imagine. So stop with the "it happened a 100 yrs ago" or "stop playing the race card". It happens everyday, from children going to school to women in the corporate world, think about the underlying theme "Hate Hurts Everyone"

WTNH the local ABC affliate kept saying that someone placed a moose under the car. I really think they will read whatever scrolls by on the teleprompter. I couln't figure out how a moose was racist, but now I get it.

I am white. To all the racists on this board... You talk about how nooses don't only represent the deaths of black people BUT.... SOMEONE LEFT A NOOSE UNDER A BLACK PERSON'S CAR. HELLO! Isn't that a message that keeps reminding black people about what happened years ago?? Sounds like the white person IS THE ONE THAT KEEPS IT GOING!! Stop reminding black people of these things and we wouldn't have to deal with these issues-- in fact there wouldn't be this discussion here!!!!!!

I HEARD SHE PUT IT THERE HERSELF.

SHE AND HER HUSBAND ALREADY SUED.

BLACK/HISPANIC COPS ARE ALWAYS PULLING THE FRIGGEN RACE CARD.

SHE SHOULD BE FIRED FOR FAKING AN INCIDENT.

Everyone uses the race card! Was not there 4 White policemen in New Haven who just got a settlement for a few million for reverse discrimination. All over the US everyone uses the race, religion or gender card! Even presidential hopeful Edwards wife said that her husband does not get enough attention because he is not Black or woman!

I KNOW BECAUSE I KNOW- AND THAT'S ALL I CAN SAY.

I am so completely tired of this. I know these people and yes they are going to push this to the extreme. I have also beliefs that this noose was planted by the Meekins as well.

What I would like to know is why there was NO MEDIA coverage of the brutual murder/rape of Christopher Newsom and Channon Christian which happened in January of 2007. See link below for the ENTIRE TRUE story that not one media station will air, oh I forgot it was a murder committed by black men and one black woman against 2 white people:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Channon_Christia...

Yes unfortunately the RACE card is played and abused every single day in our world, the sad party is we have no one to defend the rights of the white people. If more white people spoke up and stood up for what is right, then maybe justice would prevail.

To the Meekins, what you are doing is just plain sad and like the old saying goes, what comes around goes around...bad karma will find its way to you.

God Bless America, because we the WHITE people sure need it.

How do you know for sure that it was a white person who left it there? Could be someone trying to get attention too. Until the person is caught don't assume what race they are...
