A noose was found near the office of black Connecticut politician Dennis Minor. The pink noose was reportedly left hanging from the men’s bathroom door in Berkshire Hall, which is on the grounds of Brodie Park, where Minor works as the town’s recreation director.
Dennis Minor told a local Fox affiliate that he was “speechless” about the matter, which he deemed a hate crime. He recently announced that he is running to become the town selectman of New Hartford and thinks that announcement may have angered people in the area.
‘It’s just strengthened my resolve, that’s all it did. If somebody did that to make me get out of the race that was probably the wrong thing to do because that’s certainly not going to happen,’ Dennis Minor told Fox.
