Hatred is epidemic (and it looks like a lynched raccoon)

Contractors upset by raccoon at work site

Minority contractors arrived at work Thursday and found a dead raccoon hanging from a sign pole. Bill Mason, president of the Minority Contractors Association, called it "a racist tactic to scare black people. In the South where I was born, it was common for whites to hang raccoons. It symbolized the hanging of blacks," Mason said.[thx f2b]
