Reader: It's not easy to remove the stain of racial and ethnic hatred

Thumbnail image for Colorado Springs vandalism.jpg
The holidays have not been so happy in Colorado Springs, where recent acts of vandalism included a car on the south end of town covered with the large, spraypainted message message "I hate black people!"

The city's graffiti-abatement team cleaned the car; the police are still looking for the culprit, Sam Levin reports.

But catching this particular perp and cleaning a car are just whitewash on an ugly problem.

Comments Cognitive_Dissident:

I'm glad the graffiti was successfully removed. I wish it was as easy to remove the stain racial and ethnic hatred has left on this nation.

Well said.

The U$A was founded upon Ethic and Racial prejudice, hatred and bigotry.


This appears to be an isolated incident which could very well mean it was personal . Done by someone pissed at the car owner for something other than an ethnic issue, and HATE was applied for an added effect .

Aryan Brothers aren't KNOWN for 'tagging' as is w/ the Mexican & black gangs . They feed on total destruction and the car was FAR from being destroyed !
