Remove the Noose from Mr. Bickley's Lawn

This morning, many of my friends were concerned about a noose that was put up in front of a South Buffalo home. The gentleman, Egbert Bickley explained that it was a political statement, and that we, as the American people would be hanging by it.
To many of the American people, the noose has other meanings. It could represent a portion of what the African Americans went though during the civil rights movement, it represents what a slave owner would do to a runaway slave. Ultimately, it does not have a good look for the African American people.
What we need is just the noose taken down. For me, it represents racism. It represents a dark time in the country's history where other people were looked at as undesirables. Hate needs to stop. Peace needs to begin.
Im going to the local congressman, Brian Higgins, to try to create a solution.
