*We know President Obama is familiar with acts of hate. Unfortunately, today he received another attack. According to TMZ, the site of the Obama Presidential Center in Chicago has put construction on pause, because someone left a noose in the area.
The group running the construction Lakeside Alliance, says operations were halted after “an act of hate was discovered at the project site.”
Chicago police are investigating the discovery. Mayor Lori Lightfoot made a statement on the situation saying, “Racism and racist symbols have no place in Chicago.”
Governor J.B. Pritzker denounced the incident, saying he’ll make sure Illinois “will make all needed resources available to help catch the perpetrators.”
