Home Depot Changes Rope Sales After Nooses Found

HOME DEPOT CHANGES ROPE SALES AFTER NOOSES FOUND

(CNN) – Home Depot is changing its rope sales practices after nooses were found hanging in one of its North Carolina stores.

Home Depot released a statement saying it is appalled by the incident.

It’s the latest in a series of similar incidents at its stores in recent years.

The company has now decided to sell shorter, pre-cut lengths of rope instead of rope wrapped on large spools.

Nooses are widely regarded as a threatening symbol of racism and hatred.

And it is particularly relevant as businesses and institutions across the country are currently engaged conversations about systemic racism.
