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

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. From our archives: "Target Practice: Racism and Police Shootings Are No Game."
