Civil Rights Leaders Call For Ban On "Assault Nooses"
With the recent brutal acts of lynching executed by White Racists that string back to the Reconstruction Era - Black Civil Rights Activists have demanded forceful government action to rectify the situation that will prevent other Black people from suffering the same unjust fate.
The NAPH (National Association For The Perpetuation Of The Hood)has called for a strict boycott of the noose and the materials that go into making such a device that has lead to the deaths of nearly 5,000 Black people from our release from Slavery to the end of the Civil Rights Movement.
The NWA "National Whitefolks Association) rejected the call to control nooses saying "Nooses don't kill people Racist WHITE FOLKS kill people". They pointed to all of the nooses that they have hanging in their offices that have never gone around anyone's neck and killed them.
The NAPH joined by Reverend Bebe Dadde said that while they respected the constitutional right to bear arms - they saw no need to allow individuals to own "assault nooses" - the nooses made from a rope that is 1/2 in radius or greater. There is simply no reason for a person to own such a noose because it is only used for one purpose - hanging people without the rope snapping.
