Nooses, even images of them, are being deemed racist in the USA, well now it seems that in Britain the notion of having hanging mannequins from stores is also "racist", especially when those mannequins happen to have a dark paint tone to them.
A chain of fashion stores has been accused of racism over a window display of black mannequins hanging from the ceiling.
Branches of All Saints are featuring headless dummies, with chains attached to the neck, dangling with their feet a few inches off the floor.
Police arrived at one branch, in Exeter, to investigate claims that the display was offensive and the Rural Racism Project says it has been "inundated" with complaints calling for it to be removed.
