AFRICAN BURIAL MONUMENT DEFACED

By Black Radio Network Staff

      NEW YORK - Racists defaced the African Burial Ground Monument in Lower Manhattan on Thursday, scrawling, “‘Kill’, followed by the slur, on a plaque at the monument.”
      The plaque marks the spot where as many as 15,000 Africans, both enslaved and free, were buried between 1690 and 1794.
      In black marker, vandals scrawled racial epithets at the site, which is located in close proximity to City Hall. No sooner had the graffiti been scrubbed when the city learned of another incident of hate when “Kill All Jews” and other anti-Semitic slurs were discovered written inside a Brooklyn synagogue.
      Authorities said they do not have any suspects at this time.
