    Wrong. Not even close. They actually rank #18. According to the Census bureau Texas, Florida, New York, Georgia, California, North Carolina, Illinois, Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Louisiana, Michigan, New Jersey, South Carolina, Alabama, and Tennessee all have more blacks living in their states than does "Mississipi" [sic]

    Here is a photo of it. Looks like a noose to me.

    If they mean having the highest percentage they would be correct, if they mean by sheer numbers as you indicated then they rank #18th

    I haven't followed this case much at all, but that does look like noose. I wouldn't fault anyone for thinking it was a noose.

    No one who sees a noose is going to check to make sure it's functioning properly before saying "yep, it's a noose".

    Glad the NASCAR thing turned out not to be racist-inspired.

    Yep, most people do not have extensive knowledge of knots, esp that there is a knot that looks pretty much just like a noose but really isn't.

    Assuming of course it really wasnt.
