Down here in Vancouver, the community is responding to last weekend’s racist graffiti. For instance:
Other community leaders have publicly denounced the incident. Clark County Sheriff Garry Lucas issued a statement this week saying, “these recent criminal acts are reprehensible and this sort of conduct should not be tolerated.”
Still not sure why efforts to do something positive about this rotten little graffiti attack seem to make some folks so upset. No, it won’t change the entire universe forever, but it might let the 16 year old kid (and many of her neighbors who were also victimized) who had her name and vile epithets and swastikas sprayed on the street know that folks care what happened and will do what they can.
Evil and good men doing nothing and all that sort of business, you know?
UPDATE—Courtesy of the rabbit in comments, it seems there has been a similar incident in Everett.
Sheriff’s spokeswoman Rebecca Hover says at least five vehicles were found early Friday with painted messages; several were painted with racial slurs.
At least two vehicle owners are minorities.
