A hangman’s noose was left hanging on the door of a black professor’s office at
Here are some of the quotes printed in the Daily News story from people concerned about the use of the noose:
“The ugly symbol of bigotry targeted Dr. Madonna Constantine”
“This is a cowardly, despicable act”
“…the noose-emblematic of lynchings of blacks in the Old South”
“….a hateful act”
“I’m upset, but I am not surprised. I think it’s just a reflection of what’s going on in
“It’s disturbing, it’s not the type of thing you’d ever think would happen here or should happen anywhere”
On October 3rd, the Patriots posted an article,
“The Noose Conjures Feelings of Hate Violence and Racism”
In the article the Patriots asked that the Queens Borough President Helen Marshall use her authority to remove individuals from community boards who condone the use of intimidation, hate and fear.
We respect the job that Borough President Marshall has done for Queens and we hope that she stands up to the bullies and hate mongers in our community!
