Construction has been suspended at the Obama Presidential Center after a noose was found at the site on Chicago’s South Side, the builders said Thursday, condemning what they called an “act of hate.”

We are horrified that this would occur on our site,” the Lakeside Alliance, the group of construction companies building the center, said in a statement

A Chicago police spokesperson said the department is investigating.

The Lakeside Alliance said it is pausing construction and offering a $100,000 reward to help find the person or people responsible.

We have zero tolerance for any form of bias or hate on our worksite. Anti-bias training is included in our onboarding process and reiterated during site-wide meetings,” it said in a statement. “We are suspending all operations onsite in order to provide another series of these trainings and conversations for all staff and workers.”

This shameless act of cowardice and hate is designed to get attention and divide us,” the foundation said.

The center, which will commemorate and preserve materials from Barack Obama's presidency, will include a museum, a plaza, a rooftop garden and a new branch of the Chicago Public Library, among other features, according to its website.

The project broke ground in September 2021 and is expected to open in 2025, according to the center.

Of course they did!!!!!

Send the entire FBI immediately.

Six months after the media makes this their main story, it will go away once the truth is confirmed that a steel erector left a choker strap laid across a steel beam laid in the parking lot.

It would have been a better article if there was an actual picture the "noose" that was found.

If it was shown to an actual hangin noose then my apologies but
U bet it was actually just mistaken for an actual useful on a construction site type of a cinch, slip knot or a scaffold knot without the metal thimble yet, overhandhitch knot .

Some dumbass

You honestly hate to see it and certainly it's designed to get attention and divide us but it is just as likely a POC put it there as it is a white person.

My favorite noose story was the noose found at LSU in the quad. Big investigation. Reveille reporting on LSU racism. Black students running scared.

Was something used for a construction project and about 6 inches diameter.

Idiots.

I find it hard to believe they don’t have a picture of said noose. And spare us the ongoing investigation bullshite. The MSM would murder their own parents to be the first one to post that pic.

Imagine being so victim minded that you expect the world to stop spinning and comfort you at the presence of a rope.

Imagine bidding this project and then being told to stop work and hold an anti-bias training for all your subs. Imagine having to teach that training to a bunch of construction workers. LoL.
