COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho. - The education director of Coeur d'Alene's Human Rights Education Institute says someone left a noose on the porch of her Spokane home, in an apparent threat against the black family.

 

Rachel Dolezal found the noose Sunday morning

Rachel Dolezal said she found the noose Sunday morning just outside her front door, the Coeur d'Alene Press reported. Spokane Police Department spokeswoman Jennifer DeRuwe says a detective has been assigned to the case and it's being investigated as a hate crime.

It was the latest in a series of unsettling events for Dolezal. Last week, her home was broken into and $13,000 worth of personal belongings, including two guns, were taken. Earlier this year, Dolezal says white supremacists confronted her while she was working at the Human Rights Education Institute.

Dolezal says it all shows the importance of the institute's work.
