Authorities in Redmond are investigating a hate crime against a Black carpenter after a noose bearing his name was discovered at the construction site where he is working.

“On Saturday, June 25, a 33-year-old black male carpenter came to the Redmond Police Department and described an event at his job site that occurred several days prior,” the Redmond Police Department said.

“During this event, a rope was tied like a noose and hung in a shared trailer used for tool and equipment storage on a job site of Facebook’s parent company Meta in the 10200 block of Willows Road.”

    “It’s really sad that you know, at this time and age that this still happening. And I text my supervisor and I said: hey, this is the reason why I won’t be coming back to this job. And I sent her those pictures,” she recalled.
