A state spokesman says five additional nooses have been found hanging in trees outside the Mississippi Capitol, bringing the total to seven.
The nooses and six handwritten signs referring to the state's history of lynchings and to a U.S. Senate election were found Monday — the day before a runoff between appointed Republican Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith, who is white, and Democrat Mike Espy, who is black.
Mississippi being Mississippi. Every negative stereotype you have ever heard about Mississippi is true.
