Rainbow nooses on the tree near the college. How to understand it?


6 nooses were arranged like in rainbow colors at Austin Peay State University in Clarksville. It made people worrz because at first sight it seems as a demand to LGBT people to commit suicide.The noose is also a symbol of racial hatred in the US, especially in the south. The police started an investigation of a hate crime, but it turned out that it was just an art project provided bz one of the students.

The university has already provided an official statement in which the student )who, by the way, prefers not to tell his name, says: ” ‘My intention with my sculpture project was to address the cycle of death and rebirth that is represented by the arrival of spring. I had no social or political statements in mind. I did not take into consideration that nooses are a racially charged symbol, for that I am sorry.’
