Noose Found in Locker of Black Man Suing NYFD for Discrimination

The Root says a New York Fire Department electrician found a three foot noose hanging in front of his locker after he and other electricians alleged discrimination in provision of overtime and promotions within the Department. 

Gregory Seabrook, an FDNY communications electrician for nearly 20 years, found the noose Thursday at the FDNY facility at 87 Union St. in Brooklyn, his lawyers said yesterday.

It appears that there still is some extreme color-aroused ideation, emotion and behavior within the NYFD.  I says "extreme" because hanging a noose in an office is an offense that could lead to dismissal.  Only a person with  extreme color-aroused ideation, emotion and behavior would risk losing his job and public standing by hanging a noose in front of a co-worker's locker.
